Established in 1951 by father and son team Joe and Peter Kinnear, The Handy Angle Company, manufactured a range of practical slotted steel angle. The original staff of six worked from a small workshop, with the back bedroom of an adjacent cottage providing the office accommodation in Brierley Hill at the heart of the industrial Black Country.
Building on an innovative tensioning plate design providing a stable and highly configurable system, the business grew to meet the increasing demand for improved, purpose-built storage equipment.
