About Us

Craven & Co. Ltd is the UK’s leading
designer and wire products manufacturer of complete storage and handling
solutions, operating in a range of markets throughout the UK. Most widely known for our extensive range of racking, shelving and trolleys.

Founded in 1958 to fulfil the fabrication needs of the local community, we
developed our first modular shelving system in the early 1970s and this subsequently was refined into the first version of our renowned Firmashelf storage range, that now provides shelving in Chrome, Aluminium, Stainless Steel, Nylon or Plastic coated, Zinc Chromate and Epoxy finishes.

Continued growth and success necessitated a move in the early 1990s to our present home, a 50,000 square feet purpose built manufacturing and office complex in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire.

Having resisted the temptation to offshore our manufacturing process to the Far East Craven & Co are now recognised as the foremost British Manufacturer of Storage and Handling Products, providing shelving, racking, trolley and other wirework products to a range of industries in the UK.

Our products are designed and manufactured to cope with demanding conditions, across a range of sectors including:

  • Manufacturing
  • Logistics
  • Educational
  • Industrial
  • Pharmaceutical
  • Marine
  • Bakery
  • Shopfitting

  • Electronics

We are also able to offer bespoke manufacturing solutions to match specific requirements, if you cannot find what you require in our standard product range. Please take time to take a look at examples of how both our Standard and Bespoke Product Ranges have been applied in a number of different environments and locations.

We are proud of our British heritage and our manufacturing expertise, over 95% of our products are manufactured here in Knaresborough and we are committed to manufacturing quality British products.
