LUXMETALSISTEM was founded in 1990 by METALSISTEM as a distribution facility of the Metalsistem Group in order to provide customers with commercial off-the-shelf components. LUXMETALSISTEM is specialised in modular steel storage systems and integrated material handling solutions such as shelving and racking.

METALSISTEM is Italy’s largest manufacturer of modular storage components. The fully autonomous production capacities of METALSISTEM are able to meet the defence market’s global needs, covering the complete demand of industrial storage and material handling.
