KI’s trusted expertise in storage is demonstrated here as the storage supplier to The Bank of New York. KI storage systems have been installed for both the London offices in Canary Wharf and new support offices in Poole, Dorset.
At Canary Wharf, the Bank of New York has space on five and a half floors. All floors are open plan areas and benefit from natural daylight all around the office. The 40th floor houses some 250 personnel of The Corporate Trust Department, which was acquired from JP Morgan. The Bank of New York have also moved 260 personnel, forming the Operations Centre for The Corporate Trust, into new offices in Poole, pictured above.
700 Series storage* - KI's 700 Series lateral storage units define the corridors and are low to maximise light and give a clear, clean focal point throughout the interior. Higher drawer and cupboard door combinations are placed around the perimeter of the office. KI’s team of storage specialists offer trusted expertise in tailoring storage solutions to any office need. Our highly flexible filing and storage range minimises document retrieval time, maximises space usage and stores virtually anything safely and securely. The range is also available in any colour at no extra cost.
*700 Series storage has since been phased out and replaced by 800 Series in the UK and Europe. Rather than importing the 700 Series from the USA, we now manufacture the 800 Series in the UK, and have incorporated local modifications such as compatibility with the metric system for ease of filing. Aesthetically the 700 and 800 Series are indistinguishable, available in any custom colour required.

We had to set up office space very quickly for our Corporate Trust business with client facing personnel based in London in Canary Wharf and the support team in the Bournemouth area. KI have an impressive reputation, and came up with the best solution for our requirements in a cost effective and timely manner.
