Independent Storage Systems (ISS) was established in 1993, but our 30-year-plus history is made fresh every day. Our journey is a progression of customer-focused innovation and transformation, in a bid to provide our customers with new solutions that complement and enhance their business.

In 2003 we partnered with OTL Systems to bring to Australian businesses the best quality and value palletised racking system. And, to show our commitment, we created a brand ISS ProRack, which has become  the industry standard for pallet racking in Melbourne – and across Australia.

From the very beginning our Founder saw the benefits of electric forklifts and we have selectively partnered with leaders in electric technology. Hence, in 2015 we partnered with Nichiyu as the global leader and pioneer in electric forklift technology. In constant pursuit of clean technologies, in 2018 we brought on board Big Joe forklifts, the global leader in Lithium-Ion (Lion) forklift technology.

ISS Equipment is latest Brand evolution of our trusted company, Independent Storage Systems (ISS), as a strategic decision to officially bring our commitment to Forklift and Storage as the only one right approach to give our customers the edge they need to succeed in this decade.

This journey, our loyal customers have been sharing with us for nearly 30 years, is inspired by inevitable change and new ways of doing business. Work with us!
