About Us

E-Z Shelving History

E-Z Shelving Systems began in the late 1940’s. During most of E-Z Shelving Systems’ existence, it has been guided by the engineering expertise of Ron Johnson.  Johnson, a pneumatic engineer and designer in the bulk materials handling and transportation industry, first started his shelving business using galvanized steel.  Due to design enhancements and the offering of various metal finishes, demand for the multi-purpose product grew. Johnson’s focus was on manufacturing the highest caliber cantilever shelving available. Johnson worked diligently to design, engineer and establish quality assurance standards that have continued with the second generation of Johnson family members.  This tradition of excellence and superior service has made E-Z Shelving Systems, Inc. the premier manufacturer of heavy-duty cantilever shelving for over 50 years.

E-Z Shelving has been chosen for Homeland Security Training facilities, U.S. military bases around the world, even the U.S. Embassy in Beijing, China.  Sometimes our shelving holds up groceries or the display brochures of a Visitor Center in a National Park.  Sometimes it’s used to support important medical research, paintings stored in museum archives, or to display items of history of another U.S. manufacturer – in the Harley Davidson museum.  E-Z is very proudly made in America, a country with a rich history, and freedoms and opportunities like no other in the world.

Some years our shelving may be featured in the New York Times, Dwell magazine or Architectural Digest.  Even if you don’t notice it there, we hope you enjoy our shelving.

Sometimes we know the proud stories of the customers who use our shelving, sometimes we don’t.  We trust you now know, there’s a rich heritage behind every shelving unit we make.
