Our story

How did we get

Since its formation in 1992, SDE Group have built a reputation working across a variety of sectors and engaging with different brands on a national basis. 


Est. in 1992 by Mr John Buckton.Storage & Display Equipment began selling and fitting pallet racking as well as display fixtures to the DIY market to one of our major clients.


Ian Buckton & Jonathan Bennett joined John in the family company. SDE purchased their first office.


SDE moved offices & purchased a warehouse due to more people joining the company.More contracts were won with and the company really began to expand.


SDE relocated to our Stanfree office that we remain in today.


Mr John Buckton retired and the company was taken over by Ian Buckton and Jonathan Bennett.Larger contracts were won and the industrial side of the business really took off!


Due to the continued expansion of work, SDE invested in our 10,000 sqft warehouse in Staveley.


SDE expanded their services when Robert Cartwright joined the company starting up the Interiors side of the business.Over the next few years, the Interiors team expanded winning numerous roll out projects.


After the opening of our Interiors side of the business, we invested in our joiners workshop where we produce trade counters, doors and furniture.


Due to the wide range of services SDE now offered, we became known as the SDE Group.


We had our first employee fully qualify as a SEMA Approved Racking Inspector, expanding on our current services to be able to provide external racking inspections.


Our office went through a interior refurbishment, improving our working environment.


Another one of our employees successfully qualified as a SEMA Approved Racking Inspector due to the continued demand for more Racking Inspections.


Expanding on our digital technology, SDE Group invested in some of the latest technology providing digital & video content and 360° virtual tour experiences to our clients.


The 3D Design team came on board producing visualisations and 3D modelling to our clients across all sectors within the company. Our sales team expanded further encouraging recent graduates to build their career through SDE Group. Our latest employee successfully passed his SARI qualification - providing SDE Group with three qualified SEMA Approved Racking Inspectors


Another sector within our group was formed - SDE Electrical.


With a huge focus on renewable energy, we launched a new department within the group - SDE Energy Solutions.
