The origins of the Bisley® Company go back to 1931, when a tradesman sheet metal worker started a one-man business repairing damaged cars. With wartime contracts, the company quickly grew, but it wasn't until a London wholesaler requested a quantity of steel waste paper bins that Bisley® turned its sights to office furniture. Still run by descendants of the original family, Bisley® is the largest manufacturer of office furniture in the U.K. and one of the largest in the European Union. It is generally regarded as having the most modern, state-of-the-art factory in Europe. And The Container Store is proud to offer Bisley's® unmatched quality to its customers. From brightly colored 5-Drawer Cabinets for desktops to full size File and Collection Cabinets, The Container Store's customers have come to love Bisley's® steel construction, ball-bearing drawer glides, bright colors and European design.
