Republic Storage Systems traces its roots back to 1886, when John and Wilson Berger of Canton, Ohio began forming lengths of metal conductor pipe in their basement workshop. In 1921, Berger Manufacturing Company merged with United Furnace Company and created the trade name Berloy which quickly became known nationwide for steel furniture, storage products, lockers and shelving.
The company fostered the creation of Republic Steel Corporation in 1930 and built essential components for ships and planes throughout the war years. Post-war, the company began to focus on the storage systems that are our core business today. Republic Storage Systems was purchased from LTV Steel by its employees in 1986.
Today, Republic employs 500 people and operates over a million square feet of warehouse, manufacturing and office space. Warehouse facilities in Statesville, North Carolina and Reno, Nevada bring Republic products closer to cost- and quality-conscious customers throughout the country.
