A family of brands which can trace its origins back to 1856

Within Gonvarri Material Handling we cover the storage market needs with our well recognised brands Dexion, Constructor, Kasten and Stålteknik.

Dexion

Formed in London UK in 1937 by 50-year-old Greek-Australian, Demetrius Comino. Comino developed the ‘Dexion Slotted-Angle’ (1947), which introduced the world to adjustable storage and would go on to blaze the trail for Dexion’s purpose-built pallet racking and shelving systems. It became part of the Group in 1999.

Constructor

Originally founded as Høvik Verk in 1856, a glassworks at Høvik, Norway part of Christiania Glasmagasinas. In 1944, Constructor started in Sweden within Electrolux factory, Motala, to later run a separate factory as racking and shelving business grew significantly over time.

Between 1951 - 2000, through mergers and acquisitions of Høvik Stål, Electrolux Constructor, Kasten, Krammer & Zeuten, ETH and MTH, business developed to become Scandinavia’s leading company within storage, archive and logistics solutions. The Constructor name was adopted in the late 1980s.

Kasten
