DropBox has a long history of serving the industrial, commercial, and military markets with the best solutions to help make projects run smoothly, safely and securely.

The products built by DropBox Inc.are made from standard ISO shipping containers, constructed from 16 gauge COR-TEN weathering steel that are built to hold 67,000 pounds, and can be stacked up to nine containers high. Typically built overseas, these shipping containers are loaded full of TVs, Blu-Ray players, or whatever else is being shipped to the US. After being unloaded of their goods, the containers are usually stacked in a port or a lot and left unused. But here at DropBox Inc. we take those single-use containers and build a wide range of products from them.  

While some businesses are built on the notion of thinking outside the box, DropBox Inc. focuses our business on thinking inside the box; that is, taking what others see as a single-use container and reconfiguring it and giving it multiple, pragmatic purposes for contractors around the world. We repurpose these containers by engineering, designing, and modifying them to act as ground-level offices, blast-resistant modules, portable self-contained restrooms, chemical storage facilities, and much more.
