Do the Right Thing in All that We Do: Quality Shipping Container Modification 

At Portable Solutions Group, parent company to DropBox Inc. and Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI), we strive to do the right thing in all that we do. In the process of living out our quality policy we are dedicated to meeting and exceeding the expectations of our customers statutory and regulatory requirements, continuously improving our processes to provide increasing value to all stakeholders, and cultivating a positive, satisfying work environment. 

PSG management defines the sequence and interaction of processes required to meet customer satisfaction, along with metrics to determine the system’s effectiveness. The system is implemented through quotes, purchase orders, and contracts including drawings, workmanship standards, work instructions, checklists, and training. Upper management develops goals and objectives annually, which are translated into actionable items for each team member through the S.M.A.R.T. goal process. Managements review of the system is conducted at least annually to compare results against goals and objectives and foster continuous improvement.

Our sales and design team partner with our customers to select a standard product, modify a standard product, or develop a new product design. From start to finish the design is jointly created and developed with our customers via drawings and quotes for the work, to build and deliver the product specifically to meet their needs. When required, drawings are reviewed and approved for manufacturing by a third party or applicable state authority having jurisdiction to determine code compliance with modular building codes. Quality and engineering processes performed by PSG companies ensure the design complies with applicable codes.

The vast majority of purchased materials are readily available, standard commercial products. Their design is largely defined by industry standards, building codes, and independent certification bodies. Design requirements for custom purchased materials are conveyed to the supplier by purchase orders and/or drawings. Relationships are cultivated with vendors based on their ability to provide the requisite level of service at a price that reflects delivered value. Priority is given to local vendors.

At PSG, manufacturing personnel are qualified via third party certification and/or on-the-job training during their probationary period or when re-assigned. During that time they are given progressively complex tasks to complete. At the end of the probationary period, the team leader and Manufacturing Management determine if the person is qualified, requires more training, or will be re-assigned. Welding is performed by and under the supervision of certified welders. Electrical wiring is performed by and under the supervision of licensed electricians. Any needed plumbing is performed by and under the supervision of licensed plumbers. 

For PSG to do the right thing in all we do and to ensure the satisfaction of our customers, all products and processes are monitored to assess their effectiveness in meeting with our quality standards.

Modifying a Shipping Container: A How to with DropBox Inc.

Posted on Fri, Oct 05, 2018 @ 13:10 PM

DBI-Blog15684Modifying a Shipping Container: A How-To with DropBox Inc.

Modifying a shipping container into any number of portable, turn-key solutions can save you time and money compared to traditional stick built construction. When a standard ISO shipping container is used for portable solutions like security gates, chemical storage units, and portable labs, it can withstand weather of all kinds in a wide range of climates and environments. The corten steel used in the construction of the ISO shipping container is stronger than regular steel, won’t rust or corrode, is mold resistant, and is therefore the perfect building block. Shipping containers are affordable, versatile, can help to reduce your carbon footprint, and can be quickly constructed and easily relocated from site-to-site throughout the life of the container. 

Some of the things you will need before beginning construction your shipping container modification include but are not limited to welders, grinders, hammers, nails/screws, a wide range of power tools, and any number of doors, windows, insulation, and ancillary items required for your specific build.

First things first. You have to have a plan. Maximizing your upfront engineering and design efforts will not only help you map out your ideas but also insure that you think things through prior to beginning construction.  

Once you have your plans all worked out you'll have to find and purchase a new or used shipping container, arrange the delivery and gather all the necessary building materials. At this point it may or may not be required that you have heavy machinery to move the container into location.

Now that you've got your box it's time to begin construction.

Depending on the desired outcome and purpose of your shipping container modification it may be necessary to remove or cut out portions of the walls, ceiling, and/or floor of the container using any number of grinders, saws, and/or welding equipment. 

After you've made the needed cut outs it's time to weld in any additional supports to mount the doors and windows, build walls inside of the container with either wood or aluminum studs, and frame jambs and headers around the wall openings as needed.

Install your pre-hung doors and windows into the framed wall openings. Place all of the electrical receptacles, switches and wiring as well as any plumbing needed. Coordinate with a licensed electrician or plumber if needed. Insulate all of the walls with fiberglass, mineral wool, or spray-on expanding foam insulation.

Attach the dry wall, or other wall treatment, to the studs with screws. Install interior wall, ceiling and floor finishes as desired.

Install an HVAC wall/window unit by creating an opening for it, framed similar to a window. Install light fixtures and any finishing touches based on the specific solution you're going for
and you're up and running!

DropBox Inc. Cuts the Ribbon on New Manufacturing Facility

DropBox Inc. Cuts the Ribbon on New Manufacturing Facility

Having rented the "Fletcher Building" located at 1033 Port Road Wurtland, Kentucky for over two years, the decision has been made and the ribbon has been cut to purchase the building and bring the property into the Portable Solutions Group family of companies as our very own manufacturing facility. Perfectly set up for shipping container modification, the building has overhead cranes and a paint booth used to complete a wide range of DropBox Inc. products. Located just two miles away from our Scott Street location in Worthington, the additional manufacturing space will provide a perfect shipping container modification area for PSG. Complete with over 50,000 square feet of manufacturing floor space, the new location will more than double the company’s current manufacturing footprint. 

DropBox Inc. has recently gained substantial contracts for the construction of a wide range of Blast Resistant Modules and Patented Modular Access Control (MAC) Portals. With the addition of these contracts to the Portable Solutions Group portfolio of future work, the decision to purchase the property made absolute sense.  

At the ribbon cutting which took place, Tuesday September 18th at 4:00 pm, several of the areas prominent leaders including State Representative Dr. Danny Bentley, Greenup County Judge Executive Bobby Carpenter, Ashland Alliance CEO Tim Gibbs, and our very own President/CEO Robert Slagel addressed the crowd. In celebration of this historic moment for job creation in the Tri-State, over 100 members of the community and Portable Solutions Manufacturing team gathered for the ribbon cutting and champagne toast at the new home of our manufacturing facility.
