Humble beginnings

Founded in 1997 by entrepreneur Darren Crookes with a team of two fitters, Acorn Partitions and Storage Solutions (APSS) was so named to allow it to be near the top of the yellow page’s listings. It was driven by demountable partitions and mezzanine floors, combined with storage and shelving systems.

The company built a reputation through its strong relationships with clients from Siemens to Virgin Trains, producing innovative designs for office, industrial and retail spaces as well as educational and healthcare facilities.

The business grew to incorporate carpets, furniture and other soft furnishings as that’s what the customers asked for in addition to the services already provided. This opened up the marketplace and APSS began to offer more service-driven products.

Expanding to meet customer demand

APSS continued to expand based on the skills demand from customers, introducing a light construction aspect to the business. This helps to support our customers with a more complete package. Now clients can benefit from having new frontages as well as a complete internal design and fit out.

Joinery was another aspect in high demand by customers, which was brought in-house. This allowed for bespoke reception desks and shelving and to create that special, unique product.

A complete commercial interior design package

Now APSS has more than 50 staff working across the UK offering customers the ability to revitalise their workspace, retail store or warehouse in a seamless effort. Our expert staff can offer inspirational, innovative and confident designs to meet the requirements of any business, whether that’s an interior fit out or some light construction.
