SLP was founded in 1965 at its present site as a subsidiary of Saarstahl AG. From the beginning, cold steel profiling was the main activity of the company. Since 1985 SLP has focussed exclusively on storage technology. Today the company is one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of shelves.
The company’s long history and the continuity that goes with it offers our customers the security of being able to expand their warehouses with precise-fitting components for many years to come.
In 2004, SLP became a member of the Averys Group, which designs, manufactures and installs rack systems, conveyor systems and steel furniture. The nine companies of the group employ more than 1,300 employees at twelve production sites in seven countries.
We are convinced that high quality at reasonable prices can also be produced in Germany. Our recipe for success: Components, experienced employees and state-of-the-art production sites.
Continuity is a key factor. Many employees have been with SLP for decades. They apply their many years of experience in efficient production and pass their knowledge on to the young generation – and that expertise stays in the plant.
Cold roll-forming is a science in itself: The art lies in achieving a maximum load capacity and rigidity of columns and trusses using a minimum of material. Here, the decades of experience of our staff in dealing with steel comes in handy: They know how the material behaves and how it is best shaped.
