The origins of Bisley go back to 1931, when Freddy Brown, a panel beater working with luxury cars, starts his one-man business repairing damaged cars in a garage in St John's, Woking, Surrey.




The company moves to Bisley, Surrey. There, it builds a 400 square metre manufacturing facility and undertakes various wartime defence contracts. Bisley designs and manufactures the first containers to be dropped by parachute, which are widely used by airborne forces throughout the war. For this work it receives several commendations from the Ministry of Defence.


At the end of the war, Bisley resumes car repairs, but now has a manufacturing capability for which there’s no demand.

A London wholesaler, Standard Office Supplies, shows Freddy Brown a steel wastepaper bin. He’s told that if he can meet the necessary price and delivery, an order for 24 is his. The rest, as they say, is history.




Designed by Freddy and inspired by letter trays, the MultiDrawer is born. Arguably our best known and most loved product, it has been helping people organise their stationery, papers, coin collections and more, ever since. More than two million of the diminutive cabinets have been sold across the world, cementing its status as a classic –many of the very first models are still in use today.




Freddy Brown's son, Tony, the present Chairman, joins Bisley in 1960. The business has a turnover of £95,000 per annum and employs 28 people.


At the age of 67, Freddy Brown decides to retire and puts the business up for sale. Tony Brown decides to buy the company.




On 10 March, Tony Brown takes proud ownership of the business. Bisley has sales totalling £370,000 per year and employs 45 people.
