ABOUT Storage Designs LLC —THE ORIGINAL SCRAPBOX
Scrapbox was founded in American Fork, Utah in 2005 by Garth, and his friend Glen, who had an idea for an all-in-one solution to contain messy craft rooms that were becoming all too common in their own homes. They called it the ScrapBox and it became very popular. Not too long after, ScrapBoxes were being shipped to homes all across the country.
Scrapbox wanted to improve their manufacturing process and shorten their production lead time.
