The Story Behind Midlands Storage Systems

Phil Muhlenkamp, Midlands Storage Systems

“As a DIY guy who had success with flipping properties, I was always looking for the newest innovations to make our houses unique,” says Midlands Storage Systems owner, Phil Muhlenkamp.

Back in October of 2011, I was reading an edition of “Entrepreneur” magazine, about a product called Monkey Bars. I was intrigued and bought them to replace the wooden brackets I had installed in my construction trailer. The rack and hook system, the versatility and durability were so impressive that I decided to look into becoming a dealer.

Our Columbia based business began with a pickup truck, custom-fitted trailer, and a rental storage unit. After completing training by Monkey Bars staff, we launched a marketing campaign and contracted an exhibit booth at the Carolina Home and Garden Show. The show was an outstanding success and the beginning of a great first year.

As our business quickly expanded, we moved to our new warehouse and added other products to our list of storage solutions. Our staff includes close relatives as well as professional installers that we treat like family. We are a family business based in the Columbia area and are proud to service the eight surrounding counties. We take pride in every custom storage solution that we build. We guarantee satisfaction and go the extra mile to ensure that our customers are pleased with our work. We finish the job by putting up and hanging your items before we leave. We strive to get everything possible off the floor.

Our residential and our commercial clients rely on us to help them maximize their storage space. They know that we use top quality materials and provide precise workmanship."
