Engineered Products History
Engineered Products, Inc. was first established in 1998. Not long after their inception, the company made their first acquisition: Engineered Storage Products in Seattle, Washington. EP was conceived with the inherent ambition to continue growing. Nearly a year later, they expanded operations into Oregon, acquiring the material handling, storage and commercial products division of A&M Lift Truck, a division of Halton Co.
In 2001, EP expanded their product offering to high-tech workbenches and conveyor systems through acquiring Gadco Material Handling in Portland, Oregon. Throughout 2002, EP continued to expand, beginning to manufacture their own brand of shelving and workbenches through the acquisition of Easyup Storage Systems, and later purchasing Conveyor Engineering Co.
In early 2004, EP was honored to earn the prestigious Overhead Door Franchise banner status while also expanding operations to include after-sale service and repair in the Seattle metropolitan area. 2007 introduced a pivotal transition, with EP’s acquisition by one of the best-positioned, capital-equipment service companies in the West—the Papé Group.
EP continued with their pattern of growth, acquiring in 2017 Next Level Warehouse Solutions, a leading wholesale reseller of storage and material handling products providing solutions to clients in the Sacramento and Bay areas.
