HOW DECKED WAS CREATED
The DECKED system was created in the USA. After over 20 years of battling, band-aiding and otherwise fussing with homemade wooden drawer systems made of plywood, dimension lumber and half the hardware, co-founder, Lance Meller, declared, “Wood is dead.”
Sleeping in the back of his truck as an outdoor sales rep, spooning with skis, snowboard samples, tools and just about everything other than a warm woman, Lance started working with some pals on a solution to his pickup truck bed junk show. A few things fell into place, including a BLT with co-founder, Jake, and after nearly three years of research, design, and engineering work, DECKED was born.
