Who is Systainer Systems?

Systainer Systems North America, LLC was founded in 2022 as a joint venture between Bott and Tanos, bringing decades of industry experience in organization, storage, and van shelving together with the bott Smartvan and Tanos systainer® brands.

Since 1993, systainer® has revolutionized the industry by providing industrial and private customers with mobile, linkable systems customized for their work needs - keeping the tools and products they need always at their fingertips.

Now Systainer3, the third and newest generation of systainer® storage systems, fully integrates into bott Smartvan vehicle racking, creating a fully mobile ecosystem, whether the systainer® is being carried in a workshop, mounted into van shelving, or rolled onto a job site on a Sys-Cart.
