When DropBox Inc. begins the process of media blasting to prepare its products for paint, a compressor is used. In order to protect this investment, DropBox has built a shipping container to hold the equipment.

We asked Ronnie Kearns, Head of Manufacturing and Procurement for PSG, what exactly prompted DropBox to make this build now and what it means for the future. Kearns said:

As we spent Capital Money for improvements in our build process, we needed to purchase an new compressor for our Wurtland Facility. In an effort to protect this investment and to extend the life of the compressor, we decided to design and manufacture a container to house the equipment. This was all done in house by our design engineers and manufacturing departments. By putting the compressor in one of our containers, it will allow year round use in the heat of summer and the cold of winter due to the exhaust design and insulation provided for the winter months.

Since DropBox completed this project, the company has already received interest from others who believe that containers for their compressors would be beneficial to them as well! 

As DropBox Inc. moves forward and grows, the goal of every employee is to continue reinventing the box to not only meet the company's needs, but the specific needs of our customers too. By doing so, we are able to build trust and develop a strong relationship with every person who contacts us!

Tips for the Proper Maintenance of Your ISO Shipping Container

Posted on Tue, Oct 01, 2019 @ 11:10 AM

So you've purchased a DropBox Inc. ISO shipping container and are ready to use it on your jobsite. This product now belongs to you, and you can use it however you want. Our highly-skilled engineers work hard to ensure that each DropBox Inc. product is made to withstand the harshest conditions. However, how can you ensure that your shipping container remains in the top condition that you received it in? With anything that you own, it's important to care for your shipping container in order for you to get the most out of it. As it's used and exposed to the environment, your shipping container is going to require proper maintenance in order for it last a long time.

Luckily, DropBox Inc. has some tips on how to prevent long-term damage to your product:

1. Inspect and Repair Damages to the Container's Roof

When shipping containers are stacked on top of each other, this can sometimes cause dents to occur. As a result, dents can hold water that leads to the corrosion of the container. When these dents appear, it's important to repair each dent and paint them with rust proof paint. This makes it less likely for rust to appear and damage your shipping container.    

2. Remove and Treat Rusted Areas

Although some steel is corrosion resistant, it doesn't mean that they're completely corrosion proof. Certain locations, such as near the ocean where salt air is common, can cause rust to occur more often. Therefore, any dent or scratch that appears must be sealed and painted in order to avoid corrosion. 

3. Clean and Lubricate Doors and Handles

The more you use your shipping container, the more worn out the doors tend to get. To combat this, it's important for each door and their handles to be cleaned and greased in order to ensure that they work properly. 

4. Examine Container Modifications

When modifying a shipping container to include things such as doors and windows, it increases its exposure to water and dirt. Make sure that you check the areas of your shipping container that have been modified and clean them whenever necessary. This helps avoid corrosion and lengthens the life of your product. 

5. Make Sure the Container is on a Level Surface

When the shipping container is placed on a level surface, this prevents water from gathering and corrosion from developing underneath it. Instead, the water is able to be drained properly due to the fact that it isn't leaning to one side.

When companies need a sample to be analyzed, tested, etc., it can cause productivity to decrease due to the fact that they have to send the substance to a lab that's offsite. But what if you were able to just take that substance to a chemical laboratory that was on your jobsite instead? Thanks to DropBox Inc., that thought has become a reality with the creation of the modular chemistry lab. 

No matter what your company's specific needs are, both the standard and custom models of the modular lab are built for the demand of your current operation. Each lab is pre-engineered and configured to meet the needs of the specific industry that the lab will be used for. This includes analytical laboratories, cannabis laboratories, and cGMP. As a result, lab technicians can perform their specific tasks onsite rather than having to waste time traveling to an offsite facility. 

Finished in about half the time of traditional construction, DropBox Inc.'s modular labs are able to be quickly installed and immediately used on a jobsite. Whether you want yours to be hooked up to existing building connections or function independently, modular labs are site-ready for connection to power, water, and sewer as soon as they're delivered.

Each lab provides cleanroom process areas and laboratory/R&D space that are available as open areas or with specific zones for use separation. But because DropBox Inc. wants to ensure that each customer receives the product that fits their exact needs, our standard offerings are able to be customized in order to provide the ideal workflow for your company. 

Overall, DropBox Inc. has created the modular chemistry labs to help increase the efficiency of companies' lab technicians, but the efficiency of their entire operations!

Multi-Plex BRM Units Provide Safe, Engineered, and Scalable Modular Space

Posted on Tue, Sep 24, 2019 @ 13:09 PM

As companies become larger, their need for space tends to increase. Whether that space is used to hold a large quantity of inventory or employees, it's important that DropBox Inc. provides products that are useful for all companies no matter what their size is. For example, that's why DropBox Inc. not only provides single unit Blast Resistant Modules (BRMs) to customers but also multi-plex units that provide much more space when needed. 

BRMs are designed to have a PE Certified 1.5 PSI to 8 PSI Over Pressure Rating. Once each unit is carefully built, they are structurally reviewed to determine their blast ratings. In order to ensure that our BRMs meet state industrialized building codes, the welds and building codes of each model are inspected by a third-party. This process helps guarantee that DropBox Inc. is providing products of the highest quality to our customers. 

To meet the needs of our customers, DropBox Inc. offers our standard and custom BRM models in various sizes. From 12'x40' single units to multi-plex units at various 12' increments, we are able to provide products of the proper sizes no matter how big or small your jobsite is. While customers typically prefer the single units for spaces such as offices, laundry facilities, and tool cribs, the multi-plex units are utilized by customers who require a larger, more open space for certain rooms such as break rooms and meeting rooms.

Therefore, our multi-plex BRM units provide a safe and engineered modular space that can be scalable to the specific needs of any jobsite. 

For more information on our single and multi-plex unit BRMs, CONTACT US HERE or call 740.532.7822.

As leaders within the Tri-State and Appalachia continue to work to achieve economic prosperity for the area, another step was taken on Tuesday, September 17th toward that goal. The Delta Marriott Hotel in downtown Ashland, Kentucky was officially opened with a commemorative ribbon cutting ceremony. The ceremony also included food, drink, and inspirational speeches from the hotel's leaders. 

As an advocate for the revitalization of the Tri-State area and Appalachia, President and CEO, Robert Slagel, was in attendance to represent the company and signify its support. For future events, PSG plans to add the Delta to its list of suggestions for overnight stays for visiting customers and vendors. When PSG's out-of-town guests opt to stay at this hotel, their stays will not only include luxurious rooms and impeccable service, but also free access to "The Pantry" which is a clubhouse that offers complimentary snacks, drinks, and much more!

"I view the official ribbon cutting and opening of the Delta Marriott Hotel as another, significant, step toward the revitalization of the Tri-State. This celebration symbolizes our economic renaissance that is currently underway," said Slagel. "We at PSG were honored to be invited to celebrate the grand opening of a beautiful facility that is sure to be a real asset to people who are traveling to our area for business or pleasure. This is another great example of people working together and being forward-thinking, investing in the future for the Tri-State and beyond,” he continued.  

We at DropBox Inc. can't wait to see the Delta Marriott hotel flourish and bring more people to our wonderful area! For more information on the hotel, click here to visit its website.

Posted on Tue, Sep 17, 2019 @ 10:09 AM

If you can think it, we can turn into a box! As DropBox Inc. continues to grow and develop, our employees find new ways to create custom shipping container products for companies all across the U.S. in order to meet their job sites' specific needs. From our running water restrooms to our modular chemistry labs, we can take a standard ISO shipping container and turn it into something innovative. In other words, we are Reinventing the Box!

So how has DropBox Inc. reinvented the box this time? By turning shipping containers into portable bus stops! These portable bus stops are being shipped to a location in Nevada and will be used to hold employees who are waiting for their company bus to take them to their project site. Since these employees are required to work day and night shifts, the bus stops also include solar panels on top of them to use the sun's energy to light the boxes at night for extra safety measures. 

This is not only exciting for DropBox Inc. because it's a new product variation, but also because Shane Meadows' (pictured above) closed his very first sale that he made as a DropBox Sales Representative! When asked about this sale, Meadows was very excited. "It was an excellent learning experience and I had a great customer to deal with. The entire staff at PSG was so helpful with answering questions and working with me throughout the whole closing process. It was a wonderful feeling seeing how excited the whole staff was for me to close on my first sale," he said. 

We would like to congratulate Shane Meadows on officially closing his first sale that he made with the company. Looking towards the future, DropBox Inc. and its employees are eager to continue taking on new projects and finding new ways to reinvent the box!
