For more than 40 years, Vidmar has meant one thing to customers around the world—heavy-duty storage solutions for heavy-duty applications.
Swiss manufacturer A&R Weidmar introduced the first modular-drawer cabinet in the 1940s. In 1958, John Kleinoder, a Brooklyn-based tool and die maker, arranged to manufacture Weidmar cabinets in the United States under the name “Vidmar.”
In 1962, Vidmar cabinets became part of the first photocopiers made by Haloid Corporation, which would become Xerox Corporation. In 1965, Xerox asked Vidmar to open a plant in Allentown, Pennsylvania. A year later, Kleinoder sold the company to The Stanley Works of New Britain, Connecticut.
Whether it’s preconfigured or custom-configured storage cabinets, workstations and technical benching, mobile cabinets and toolboxes, mezzanines, adjustable racking systems, or vertical automated storage and retrieval systems, professionals worldwide depend on Vidmar for productivity improvements that directly contribute to a healthier bottom line.
