In the fall of 2001, after spending nearly 10 years designing and providing custom storage solutions for major industry, Kurt Geffe was ready for a new challenge. Interestingly, all it took was a visit to see a good friend’s new home.
His friend Scott owned a garage that featured high ceilings with little storage space on the sides or behind the family vehicles. He needed a way to store some large, bulky items that were not used often but also did not warrant paying a monthly fee for off-site storage. These included holiday boxes, keepsakes, yearbooks, kid’s clothes, toys and golf clubs.
Kurt immediately recognized a way to use his custom storage experience to produce an affordable industrial strength storage rack that could be suspended from the ceiling, freeing up valuable floor space. The ONRAX brand was born.
