Solving STUFF problems is all we think about

For the last 50 years, we've been committed to helping organizations fight the tyranny of STUFF. After all, there is only so much space and an ever-growing amount of STUFF. And in our commitment to helping in this fight, we believe in doing it the right way and standing behind what we do. As a 100% employee-owned business, that matters to ALL of us!

The who

We keep things simple. We tell the truth, keep our word, and do the right thing - because it's simpler that way. People like us, trust us and buy from us because we are free from guile. We work hard, we have fun, then go home to our families. We keep things simple.

The what

We take the complicated and make it simple. Your records, your stuff, your space - all simplified. If it's in your organization and you can touch it, we help you store it, track it and retrieve it using less space and time than you ever thought possible.

Patterson Pope History - 2021+
We’ve finally reached our quinquaginta year (aka 50)
Fifty extremely long years ago, there was no internet, cable television, or Takis® chips. But yes, there were STUFF problems. Our fearless founders started this company with nothing more than a hope, a prayer, and a single manila folder. Since that fateful day, we’ve come a long, long way.

Our Process

Over the past 50 years, we have learned a lot about taking a project from idea to completion...and beyond. Along the way, we created (and refined) a process that helps us solve all sorts of space and storage problems. That process involves four steps: Survey and Analysis, Planning and Design, Installation and Ongoing Support. Check out this quick video to find out more.
