Portable Solutions Group Major Award Winner for Q1 2019

At Portable Solutions Group (PSG), parent company to DropBox inc. and Modular Security Systems Inc., we work with customers around the world to build portable, turn-key solutions for a wide range of applications. From customizable guard offices with turnstiles, vehicle barrier gates, access control, and climate-controlled guard offices to restrooms, showers, and much more, we take every step needed to provide functionality, deliverability, and the optimization of a restricted footprint and make things happen. 

In recognition of all the hard work that we do, PSG has been awarding a quarterly “Major Award” similar to that received by "The Old Man" (Ralphie's dad) in 1983's A Christmas Story. The award is given to employees who go the extra mile to get the job done. 

Being open to the imagination of our customers’ needs with consideration to the products we build is a lot of work and requires the attention of a lot of behind-the-scenes folks. While our salespeople, engineers, and designers lead the charge out front, a large group of office staff keeps things rolling and makes sure the ship keeps sailing on down the river.

With those hardworking people in mind, it is with great pleasure that we have awarded the 2019 Q1 Major Award to Donna Vanover-McGlothin. Donna began her career with PSG in 2017 as our Accounts Receivable and Payroll Administrator. 

Since coming aboard Donna has worked very hard to help the companies with account balances and accounts receivable and has maintained payroll for our more than 100 employees.

We'd like to take this opportunity to congratulate Donna for all of her success and hard work. Way to go, Donna! Congratulations!

Shipping Container Modifications for Portable Work Stations

DropBox Inc. has established a wide range of customers in the industrial and commercial construction industry, not just in the U.S. but around the world. Everything from containerized restrooms, Blast Resistant Modules (BRM), modular chemical labs, and ground-level workshops have been custom designed, engineered, manufactured, and delivered to meet our customers’ site-specific needs.

At DropBox Inc. we make it a point to listen to our customers and to provide custom shipping container modifications that meet their unique and specific needs.

We have modified everything from the simplest tool cribs to highly customized ground-level chemical labs and portable work stations.

Many of our customers need a portable solution to meet their need for onsite work stations for hose repair, and other work shops for carpentry, water testing and filtration, and welding training and testing. Many of our customers need an enclosed climate-controlled area with pre-installed welding equipment, cutting devices, saws, as well as over-head gantry cranes.

Our 20’ and 40' portable work stations are customized to facilitate onsite work that would otherwise have to be performed off-site with long turnarounds and big bills. The portable ground-level work stations we provide help save our customers time and money because these tasks can now be completed without having to leave the jobsite.

The main advantage of the portable onsite work stations we provide is that they can be placed anywhere and moved easily from location to location. Thanks to the durable nature of shipping containers, our work stations can be climate-controlled and provide an enclosed work space with the right equipment regardless of their destination.

Regardless of your work site needs, DropBox Inc. can provide the portable shipping container modifications you need to get the job done on time and under budget.

Re-Inventing the BOX through Re-Use and Recycling Shipping Containers

Posted on Wed, Mar 13, 2019 @ 09:03 AM

Re-Inventing the BOX through Re-Use and Recycling Shipping Containers

DropBox Inc. is an ISO shipping container modification business. We work with shipping container brokers around the U.S. to procure one-trip shipping containers to build our products and promote green construction. We take shipping containers and re-invent them through modifications to create one-of-a-kind products, as well as a long line of standardized products like Blast Resistant Modules, Ground-Level Offices, Modular Chemical Labs, and much more.

The re-use and recycling of shipping containers for the construction of portable jobsite solutions makes perfect sense for DropBox Inc. and our customers. All around the world shipping containers are used for imports and exports. Due primarily to the growing U.S. trade deficit with shipping container producing countries like China, roughly 7 million shipping containers come into the U.S. every year while only about 2.5 million are shipped back out.

Because of this, shipping containers are being stockpiled at ports all around the country. Many of these containers go unused – and thats where DropBox Inc. comes into play. We purchase these containers and use them to build our products. In doing so we are essentially recycling containers that would otherwise go unused and left sitting at ports and harbors. 

By building our shipping container products from one-trip containers, DropBox Inc. creates shipping container modifications that prove to be more durable and stronger than other comparable products that are typically built using conventional stick-built construction.

If you have an idea for a shipping container modification product and would like to learn how DropBox Inc. can help you bring your idea to life, CONTACT US or call 740.532.7822 to speak with one of our shipping container modification experts.

DropBox Inc. Secures Major Supply Contract with the Department of Homeland Security

Posted on Wed, Feb 13, 2019 @ 10:02 AM

shipping container modification design, storage container modifications, ISO shipping container modification, custom shipping container modification, ISO Shipping container modifications, DropBox Inc

Worthington, KY-based DropBox, Inc., today announced it has entered into an approximately $2.15 million contract with the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction Office (CWMD).

The new contract -- the culmination of a nearly decade-long development process between DropBox and the DHS -- calls for DropBox to produce and deliver multiple specially engineered and designed shipping container modifications, known as the On-Dock Rail Straddle Carrier Portal (ODRSCP). DropBox plans to add up to 30
full-time jobs to fulfill the requirements of this project.

The specialized container-based scanning units will be positioned at U.S. ports and will be deployed specifically to scan incoming overseas shipping containers for nuclear material that can be found in “dirty bombs” and/or other potential weapons of mass destruction.

The ODRSCPs will be manufactured at DropBox’s Worthington production facility.

“We congratulate DropBox, Inc. on this significant DHS contract award, and we thank the company for its commitment to the commonwealth in acquiring its facility in Wurtland,” Gov. Matt Bevin said. “Not only will this project create quality jobs in Northeast Kentucky, it will play a key role in keeping Americans safe at our international ports of entry. We are proud that a Kentucky company is supporting this vitally important effort, even as we further solidify our reputation as the nation’s center for engineering and manufacturing excellence.”

U.S. Senator Rand Paul echoed Gov. Bevin’s sentiments: “When I visited DropBox, Inc., in Worthington just a few months ago, I was truly impressed with the tremendous success of this Kentucky business,” “As a strong supporter of Right to Work, it’s always exciting to see companies economically benefit and create more jobs here in the Commonwealth due to business-friendly policies and getting government out of the way. It’s why I have always fought for tax cuts, and was thrilled that we were recently able to pass historic federal tax reforms that are helping businesses throughout Kentucky and all across the country. Congratulations to Robert Slagel and his team on their well-deserved accomplishments and growth.”

The Root of the Matter

The Sept. 11, 2001, coordinated terrorist attacks that took the lives of nearly 3,000 innocent people brought a renewed commitment to border security and led to the creation of the federal cabinet department known as the Department of Homeland Security, which is responsible for ensuring the country’s public safety.

In the aftermath of 9/11, a series of major initiatives to combat terrorism were advanced across the U.S. Securing America’s ports was one such priority initiative, with a sharp focus on analyzing shipping containers for radioactivity.

In 2010, only about 5% of all overseas shipping containers were being scanned at U.S. ports for radioactive material, leaving 95% of inbound shipping containers potential ticking time bombs. Around 2010, Congress mandated the DHS commence work to reverse these percentages. And that’s where this story, and the aforementioned DropBox contract with DHS, begins.

A Look at the Current Shipping Container-Scanning Process

Upon a ship’s arrival at a U.S. port, containers are randomly selected and placed on large straddle carriers up to 40 feet tall, a necessary step for moving cargo containers from the dock to railroad cars or trucks. On their way, the straddle carrier must stop and place the container on the ground for manual scanning by individuals with wands. This process is labor-intensive and often creates a bottleneck, particularly at the busiest ports.

A Look at the Streamlined DropBox Scanning Process

The DropBox On-Dock Rail Straddle Carrier Portal streamlines the current process by reducing the need to stop and place the container on the ground for manual hand-wand scanning. With the ODRSCP, both the straddle carrier and shipping container pass through the ODRSCP’s high-tech, automated scanner tunnel on their way to the railroad car or truck. The process flow is continuous and seamless.

By streamlining the hand-off of containers from the straddle carrier to the railroad car or truck, higher percentages of containers can be scanned. It also strips time and cost out of the supply chain, unclogs bottlenecks and helps speed merchandise to market, thereby reducing inventory carrying costs.

ODRSCP: Nearly a Decade of Tests and Refinements

The ODRSCP development project has been a nearly decade-long labor of love and perseverance. Indeed, DropBox’s path to securing the DHS contract began in 2010 when it was selected to build an ODRSCP prototype for the Savannah River National Laboratory (SRNL) in Aiken, SC.

The Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site (SRS) is a 310-square-mile secure site located on the border between South Carolina and Georgia. Here, the SRNL has the capability to provide multiple venues in support of projects related to the defense of the U.S. homeland. In partnership with the SRNL and the DHS, DropBox helped engineer, design and construct the original ODRSCP model.

After completing initial testing at SRNL in 2011, the ODRSCP was disassembled and delivered to Norfolk, VA, where it was reassembled and required to pass secondary testing, in full function, at the city’s shipping port.

In 2016, the prototype was shipped back to DropBox’s manufacturing plant in Worthington for minor modifications, refurbishment and still more testing.

After the refurbishments were made, the prototype was delivered to the Port of Tacoma in Washington state, where the unit is currently in full operation, scanning containers coming into the U.S. from overseas.

In the coming months, DropBox will begin production of more of these ODRSCPs, now fully designed and vetted, for deployment to more of the country’s busiest container ports.

“Senator Paul and Governor Bevin are to be commended for their vision for Kentucky,” said Robert Slagel, President and CEO of Portable Solutions Group, parent company of DropBox. “On behalf of our nearly 130 dedicated employees, we are honored to do our part to help validate the governor’s bold vision to make the Commonwealth the engineering and manufacturing hub of excellence in the world.

“To Senator Paul, I certainly thank him for his unwavering support of Right to Work. As an entrepreneur and small businessperson, this support is certainly what inspires me to keep driving forward to create more and better-paying jobs for the citizens of eastern Kentucky and all of Appalachia.

“And I’d be remiss if I didn’t also recognize our dedicated employees, in particular those individuals whose persistence, positivity and commitment to excellence over these past nine years ultimately were what was needed to engineer, design, construct, test and deliver-to-market this unique security portal -- a product that will play a major role in ensuring the safety of the United States and its residents in the immediate years ahead.”
