About Edsal

Who We Are

Edsal is North America’s leading designer, manufacturer, and distributor of high-quality steel shelving and cabinets for garage, basement, storage, and commercial storage applications. Our clients include home improvement retail centers (Home Depot, Lowe’s, Menards, etc.), mass merchandisers (Walmart, etc.), club stores (Sam’s and Costco), e-commerce companies (Amazon, Wayfair, etc.), industrial distributors (Grainger, Global Equipment, Fastenal, MSC Direct, etc.), office products, and educational supply distributors (School Specialty, School Outfitters, etc.).
Our company was founded and operated as a family-owned-and-operated business on Chicago’s South Side for over 65 years. We acquired Sandusky Lee Cabinets in 2002, expanding our product portfolio and markets served to include cabinets and bookshelves for the educational and office products market.

In 2018, Edsal was acquired by a private investment company. We continue to maintain operating sites throughout the United States, including Chicago, IL; Gary, IN; Littlestown, PA; and Arvin, CA.
