Founded in 1978, Eastern Storage Equipment became one of the UK’s leading independently owned storage and interiors companies supplying a comprehensive range of shelving, racking, partitioning, ceilings and full design and installation service to office and industrial environments.

Following a management buyout in the mid-1990s by Robert Kennedy and business partner John Scott, the company was re-launched under the banner ESE (Scotland) Ltd.

In the following years the company built up lucrative relationships with some of the UK's largest companies, fitting out both office and industrial space taking the company from strength to strength, and becoming the leading Dexion distributor in the UK. Specialising in storage and handling solutions for all industrial and commercial environments.

In 2008 commercial property services provider Chess Group plc acquired ESE Scotland.
The company was merged with the industrial division of Aberdeen-based Modul8 to establish a new group company, Chess Storage and Interiors (CSI). A strategic move to capitalise on their respective regional dominance and expand throughout the UK.

Committed to the company’s continued success, Robert Kennedy and John Scott remained with the new company which doubled in size and established strong trading divisions in both the central belt and north east of Scotland.

In 2009, keeping up to speed with the emerging ecommerce market for B2B and providing for the changes in the traditional buying methods of its customers, CSI developed a full ecommerce version of its industrial and commercial equipment catalogue.

Now with seven ecommerce web sites working within the CSI brand, and over 20,000 products online designed for industrial and commercial workplace environments, this has transformed the geographical reach of the business across the UK.

In 2012, in recognition of this success, CSI were presented the award for High Growth & Innovation at the West Lothian Chamber of Commerce Business Excellence Awards.
