In 2014, Smart Shopfittings got the first shipment of Tegometall Optima. This is Tegometall’s answer to the weak, inferior shelving that price concious customers , were forced to buy. This system sets the standard for an ideal balance between cost and quality.

Tegometall History

The initial Tegometall concept was a shelving system designed for “everyman” – A plug in system using wall uprights and brackets. With this concept the success of Element System was sealed and cornered the market. It was only a question of time until the shelving concept was developed to create a comprehensive shopfitting system. Tegometall was born.

In the early 1950′s Rudolph Bohnacker pioneered the system which all Tegometall products rely on today – that of a simple plug-in shelf, which could sustain anything you wanted to put on it, without obtrusive poles or buttresses.

Herr Bohnacker soon found the demand for his invention sky-rocket – not just for libraries and schools as was originally envisioned – but from shopkeepers looking to maximise their floorspace.

Soon, Rudolph had no room to accommodate production, and in 1966 he relocated to Krauchenweis, Germany – where he not only established his large factory, but also the name ‘Tegometall’.

Since then, the brand has expanded across Europe, and patented innovations like the pallet racking & storage system and the racking with integration system.

The 1990′s saw further expansion from the shop-fitting brand, as not only was a purpose-built facility opened in Sauldorf – Rudolph’s and & heir Ulrich Bohnacker opened more factories in Hungary, Poland and Switzerland.
