About Montel

About Us

Established in 1924, Montel pioneered high density mobile storage systems in North America providing cost-efficient storage solutions using less space.

 

Prior to becoming North America's leading manufacturer of mobile systems, we had acquired nearly 40 years' experience in the electrical industry, including extensive involvement in the construction of generating stations and power grids for major world leading hydroelectricity plants. This explains our expertise and the exceptional quality of our electrical mobile systems.

 

From the manufacturing of bicycle stands to electrical flip-flop toasters in the 1930's, from its first involvement in cantilever library shelving applications in 1955 to the acquisition of the assets of Art Metal Inc. of New Jersey in 1986, Montel then became fully devoted to high density storage systems.

 

As we now manufacture all our mobile and stationary shelving units, filing systems, industrial mobile carriages, art racks, moveable pull-out storage panels, accessories and cabinets for multimedia storage, museum storage and much more, we have a perfect control on our products and we will help you finding the right solution for your specific storage needs

 

Manufacturer of products for office, institutional, industrial, retail and even residential applications, Montel's achievements include some of the most prestigious projects in North America and around the world. The company serves clients through a network of authorized dealers throughout North America, central America, Europe and the Middle East.

 

Launching innovative products year after year, Montel is a supplier of choice if looking for the best and safest storage systems.
