About Sperrin Metal

Designing & Manufacturing Storage Systems Since 1963

Sperrin Metal Storage Solutions was first established in 1963 by the parish priest and a committee of local business people to provide employment in the Draperstown area.

Just two years earlier in 1961 the International Union of Railways signed an agreement on the use of a "standardised or exchangeable pallet" among railways. This was a response to the surge of freight traffic on European railway networks since the early fifties, post World War II. Along with changes to practices at port facilities and the development of the fork lift truck, palletisation revolutionised material handling and distribution worldwide.

The vision of those pioneers in 1963 led to company that has grown to become one of the leading storage manufacturers in Britain and Ireland. The company oversees whole process through it’s various departments, from the design and manufacture through to the installation and after sales care.

Now a family owned company, Sperrin Metal exports pallet racking and other metal storage products throughout Europe and the Middle East as well as being a leading supplier in the UK and Ireland.
