Company Profile

The largest manufacturer of supermarket shelving and display equipment in Africa

Early beginnings to market leadership

KK Engineering was established in 1964 and to this day is still a family owned and managed business. The business was registered as a company in 1968 and in the early 80’s started trading as KK Display. In 2008 the trading name KK Display was changed to KK Shelving, and the newly acquired factory in City Deep would trade as Storequip, under the Storequip Group.

Over the period the company has developed and manufactured approximately 5000 different components and continues to look at innovative new products. A philosophy of quality and service has always been a priority and today KK Shelving and Storequip are market leaders in display equipment and gondola shelving. Storequip, in the new factory, will focus on the heavy duty 1000mm, 1220mm and 1330mm gondola shelving systems as well as the light to heavy duty industrial racking systems, whereas KK Shelving will continue to manufacture the 914mm  Gondola Systems and most of the display accessories. Shelvit, a group owned company, specializes in D.I.Y shelving and hooks for home garage shelving. Storequip Electronic Systems is a new company focusing solely on the S.E.S. Electronic Shelf Labels
