Shelving Inc

Our Story

We have been serving the storage needs of business and industry since 1960. We pride ourselves in offering the finest quality storage products available, as well as providing added value with our design-build capabilities and after-the-sale support services. In our infancy, Jack Schodowski (founder) combined his love of industrial engineering and sales to start a family business with his wife, Helen. He opened the doors of Shelving, Inc. in a two-story warehouse in Detroit, Michigan, at the corner of Riopelle and Woodbridge. Jack developed a quality brand and instilled in the company a strong sense of pride and community. His goal was to assist customers in organization and space allocation by effectively using the best storage solutions available. Now, 59 years later, Shelving, Inc. is still a family owned business, holding true to the same values and goals that Jack put forth. The company has moved to its current location in Madison Heights, Michigan, but we still remain loyal to our humble Detroit roots. As we all know, Detroit has seen its fair share of trying times, so we have partnered with the Capuchin Soup Kitchen to help others in need. We happily donate 10% of our profits to Capuchin every year, spending time/donating products to help whenever we can. Today, the next generation of Schodowski’s have taken the reigns and are leading the company into our bright future.

Our Website

The growing demand to reach customers all over the country prompted Shelving, Inc. to launch our first website,, in 2004. The idea was to make industrial products easy to find, understand, and order, no matter who’s shopping. We’ve partnered with several of our industrial suppliers to offer the same high quality products online that we’ve installed in countless local warehouses. With our overwhelming success online, we decided to expand into the consumer market, providing organizing products to organize life’s stuff. In 2007, a showroom was opened in Madison Heights to reflect those residential products and house our additional employees. We are constantly adding products to the website to help you make better use of your space, whether you need storage for the house or your place of business.

Our Staff

Our crew is comprised of talented and creative people who are dedicated to helping businesses find storage products to suit their needs. We have a resource center to answer calls/emails and provide quotes, a design team that will help you make the most of your space, an installation team that takes the worry out of large projects, and sales titans that show the world why we rock. Our web team writes the product descriptions and creates images so you know exactly what you’re buying! With under 30 employees, we’re a small business that can take care of some big jobs.
