75 Years of Dexion’s Adjustable Storage System

It’s been 75 years since Demetrius Comino (founder of Dexion) pioneered the Dexion Slotted-Angle introducing the first adjustable storage system of its kind to the world. Recognising a need for storage racking that could quickly and easily be dismantled and reused, Comino’s ingenuity paved the way to Dexion’s success.

Over the course of the last 75 years, Dexion Slotted-Angle has had a multitude of possible uses, serving our customers with a reliable and convenient solution for their storage needs and providing them with products designed to last.

Interestingly, it has been provided for alternative uses other than a storage solution. For instance, in 1956, parts were supplied for the ski stadium in the Winter Olympics held at Cortina d’Ampezzo. Whilst in 1963, when an earthquake hit Skopje causing huge destruction, Comino donated parts to assist with the construction of new houses, enough to complete two full-sized villages. As a result, the town was nicknamed ‘Dexiongrad’.
