DropBox Inc. Provides Portable Chemical Labs for Natural Gas Industry

DropBox Inc. Provides Portable Chemical Labs for Natural Gas Industry

From the early 2000's through today, DropBox Inc. has kept customers’ site-specific concerns top of mind. We work with our clients to create custom ISO shipping container modifications designed and engineered to to meet their needs. From self-contained running water restrooms and portable offices, work stations, equipment, and tool storage solutions to complex battery and inverter housing modules, we have consistently worked to develop products that are not only suitable for any environment, but that are also portable and turn-key and can be put into use within minutes of arriving onsite.

More recently DropBox Inc. has seen an increase in demand for custom portable laboratories for the natural gas industry. Between 2005 and 2014, US production of natural gas has increased by 70%, from 1.74 million barrels per day in 2005 to 2.96 million barrels per day in 2014 and the US has been the world's leading producer of natural gas liquids since 2010, when US natural gas production passed that of Saudi Arabia. 

The increased use of natural gas for fleet vehicles as well as electric power generation has lead to an increase in drilling operations that are often regulated with strict environmental guidelines. These guidelines often require the regular testing of ground water in and around the drill site as well as regular testing of the gases extruded from the drill site for refining. 

DropBox Inc. has worked with its customers in the industry to design, engineer, and manufacture portable labs that can be used in the often remote locations where drilling activities take place. Climate-controlled and complete with a wide range of lab accessories that can include storage space, cabinetry, counters, fume hoods, sinks, and proper ventilation. By building these units at our manufacturing facility in Worthington, Kentucky we can quickly and easily ship a turn-key lab solution to our customers.

A short drive outside of Ashland, KY "The Hangar" has been home to manufacturing operations for PSG companies since 2010, when a boom in perimeter security for nuclear facilities around the U.S. necesitated a larger manufacturing space for DropBox Inc. and MSSI. "We expected to be at the hangar for maybe two years,” said Robert Slagel, President/CEO of Portable Solutions Group, "but business just kept coming in and we've been here ever since."

DropBox Inc. A Discussion with PSG Plant Manager Isaiah Haynie

Posted on Fri, Mar 02, 2018 @ 15:03 PM

shipping container modification, DropBox Inc, shipping container modifications, shipping container modifications company, ISO shipping container modification, shipping container modification company, Isaiah Haynie

 

At DropBox Inc. we know that people are what set us apart from the competition. Our employees and leaders must exemplify integrity and earn the trust of not just our customers but also their teams through their everyday actions. When as a company and as a leader you do this, you set high standards for everyone. When positive energy and enthusiasm for shared goals and purpose are present a deeper connection can be made with your team and with the customers you hope to work with. A shining example within our organization of this energy and enthusiasm comes from our manufacturing floor and our plant manager Isaiah Haynie. 

This week I had the opportunity to sit down and talk to Isaiah (or "Zeke" as he has been called since his days as an undergrad at Marshall University) to discuss what drives him and what he sees as the future for Portable Solutions Group, DropBox Inc. and Modular Security Systems Inc. 

MD: So Zeke tell us a little bit about yourself and your background? 

IH: Well, I'm a West Virginia boy. I graduated from Marshall University and I grew up in West Virginia. I've lived in the Tri-State all of my life outside my experience with the National Guard. I love the area and I love the people and the experiences and opportunities the natural splendor that Appalachia provides. When I'm not hanging out with my wife and 3 year old son I'm in the woods hunting or rock climbing and enjoying the outdoors. 

MD: You said the National Guard? Where did you work before becoming a part of the PSG team? 

IH: Yeah, I served in the National Guard as a HazMat inspector out of Charleston for eight years between 1997 and 2005 as part of the 130th Airlift Wing and I worked for Veolia Environmental Services from 2001 until I came to work here in 2016.

MD: Veolia Environmental Services? What did you do for them? 

IH: I started out in safety and worked my way up to management from there. I supervised a great group of people and did my best to keep all my employees safe and grow the customer base in and around the Tri-State.   

MD: What interested you in Portable Solutions Group and shipping container modifications?  

IH: I really think it was just my curiosity to discover new opportunities and to learn more about the shipping container modification industry. I'd worked at Veolia with a lot of great people for so long and I learned so much there but I felt like I could use that knowledge to help develop and grow the PSG companies. 

MD: What do you think you've learned about shipping container modification that you might not have known prior to coming to work at PSG? 

IH: Honestly... Everything. I had no idea so many things could be built from an ISO shipping container. Sure I'd seen a lot of “MILVANs”, which is short for “military van” and is what we called them in the guard and on jobsites while at Veolia, but really I had no idea of the number of products that could be built out of these boxes

MD: What's one of the most exciting projects you think you've been a part of since coming to work as our plant manager? 

IH: The Kazakhstan builds for sure. I mean just the number of units we're building for Tengizchevroil and the fact that we've built them to meet their specifications with regards to their specific electrical components is pretty cool. We've built 50 units for them and they're all up to code and from what I hear very well received by our customer. 

MD: What about the most reward project? For you personally?

IH: The most rewarding project for me is the fleet of Blast Resistant Modules that we've built and continue to add to every week. I came from a safety background and to know that the products we build are out there protecting American workers in refineries, chemical plants, and beyond is rewarding for me. 

MD: Last but not least what do you think the future holds for DropBox Inc. and Modular Security Systems Inc.?  

IH: The sky is the limit. We're doing a lot of very interesting things for some very big customers... We're building battery and inverter systems for natural energy customers – and we just recently built a laser housing module for NASA... NASA Literally the sky is not even the limit when you've got customers like NASA. 

DropBox Inc. is the most experienced shipping container modification company in United States, and we are ready to take on your next shipping container modification project. The products we provide are portable, secure, rugged, and ready to use within minutes of arrival to your location.

3 Reasons People Build Things Out of Shipping Containers

Posted on Tue, Feb 13, 2018 @ 08:02 AM

shipping container modification, ISO Shipping container modifications, DropBox Inc, shipping container modifications, shipping container modifications company, ISO shipping container modification

 

3 Reasons People Build Things Out of Shipping Containers

DropBox Inc. is proud to offer a wide variety of containerized, portable turn-key products for industrial and commercial construction customers. Over the years we have built many different types of shipping container modifications for power plants, refineries, nuclear facilities, commercial construction, and infrastructure projects in the U.S. and abroad. We here at DropBox Inc. know that there are lots of reasons why people build things out of shipping containers. In this week’s edition of the Shipping Container Mods Blog we are going to look at the top 3 reasons our customers report for wanting to build with ISO shipping containers. 

1) Longevity: Shipping containers are the perfect building block.

First and foremost, shipping containers themselves are manufactured to last 50-60 years and are constructed from steel tubing, corrugated 16-gauge steel panels, and marine grade plywood. They are built to hold 67,000 lbs. of cargo and be stacked 10-high. Because of this construction they are the perfect building block and can be used for a wide range of solutions that will also last a very long time. The engineering and design that goes into the box itself – and into the modification of the box – make it an excellent building block for temporary structures as well as permanent installations.

2) Portability: Shipping container modifications can be moved easily from one location to the next.

Shipping containers, as the name suggests, are made for shipping. With shipping container modifications the end product is still engineered to be easily transported from one location to the next. The boxes themselves are built to meet international standardized shipping dimensions and can be loaded on trains, trailers, and boats for transportation as needed. 

3) Turn-Key Installation: With shipping containers very little work has to be done onsite. 

When you get a shipping container modification from DropBox Inc. you get a turn-key product that is easy to put to use. Many of our customers note that the only thing they had to do once a DropBox Inc. shipping container modification was delivered was to hook it up to power. While not all shipping container modifications are the same, it can often be just as simple as that... As long as you have a level surface to sit our shipping container modifications on, hours of man-power and a lot of money can be saved in comparison to stick building a structure. 

At DropBox Inc. our designers, engineers, and expert team of shipping container modifiers build a shipping container into virtually anything – for whatever reason you might have. Our shipping container modifications have been used in every climate zone on Earth. So, if you need additional office space, on-site restrooms or showers, or work stations, the DropBox Inc. team can help. Our highly skilled team of engineers can even "build up" by securely stacking multiple containers into a multi-story building; we can manufacture structures with both internal and external stairs. Long-term or short-term, DropBox Inc. can build temporary and permanent buildings.

Large or small, DropBox Inc. can supply the long-lasting, portable, turn-key solution you need.
