DropBox Inc. Opens Sales And Distribution Facility In Sulphur, LA, To Better Serve Gulf Coast Refinery And Chemical Markets

Posted on Thu, Nov 10, 2016 @ 15:11 PM

Portable Solutions Group (PSG), parent company to DropBox Inc. and Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI), companies that serves the industrial, commercial and military markets with products that help project managers, site operators, procurement professionals and end users safely and securely furnish their jobsites, plants and man camps, is pleased to announce that it has opened a new sales and distribution office in Sulphur, LA.

PSG chose Sulphur, a city of around 26,000 in the far southwestern corner of the state, for its new facility because of its close proximity to the vast oil-refining and chemical-manufacturing operations that are headquartered in the area, most notably in the cities of Lake Charles and New Orleans, LA, and the Texas towns of Houston, Port Arthur and Beaumont.

“Where we’re located on the Gulf Coast, rapid response and service are very important,” explained Micah Areno, Senior Business Development Manager for PSG. “Being near where a lot of refineries and chemical producers are located gives us quick accessibility to their operations and allows us to maximize our reaction time through our 24-hour service capabilities. We have designed this facility to be a one-stop shop, so we have a yard that’s fully capable of performing service and repairs, while it’s also a staging area for product transportation to customer sites.”

While the new facility will eventually be a distribution point for all of PSG’s product lines, including mobile offices, decontamination showers, temporary storage containers, portable toilet facilities, among others, it is currently handling two of PSG’s most prominent products.

The first is the Blast Resistant Module (BRM) from PSG subsidiary DropBox Inc. BRMs are critical pieces of equipment at refineries and chemical-production sites where there is the threat of deadly explosions. When there is a heightened risk of explosion, site personnel can enter the BRM and know that they will be protected from harm.

“The need for BRMs is growing every day as more and more facilities are being required to have them on-site,” said Areno. “OSHA is driving a lot of the requirements to have BRMs instead of non-blast buildings. In a lot of people’s eyes, a blast building is just a blast building, but we’ve looked at how the industry has handled the requirements to this point, the challenges and concerns that people have, and are focusing on what they need and want from BRM companies.”

DropBox Inc's BRMs are API 753-compliant and are constructed of steel-reinforced roof and wall panels. They can be custom-built to customer specifications, or either purchased or leased in standard 12’ by 40’ and 12’ by 20’ sizes. Multiple 12’ units are capable of being linked together to make a larger complex. All can be outfitted with a number of options depending on the needs of the facility, including control rooms, ports for incoming electrical and communication services, air conditioning, lockers, showers, break rooms with kitchenettes, restrooms, windows, cargo doors, emergency lighting, insulation, smoke detectors, and washers and dryers.

PSG can custom build a BRM to meet the specific needs of the client, and offer a variety of configurations to meet the customer’s layout needs, including multiplex units that can be stacked two stories high.

The second product line currently being distributed from the Sulphur facility is the Modular Access Control (MAC) Portals from PSG subsidiary Modular Security Systems, Inc. (MSSI). The patented MAC Portals are reconfigured from modular solutions that are constructed of 16-gauge COR-TEN weathering steel and can be installed directly into the perimeter fencing at a construction site. They feature full-height, high-security, tamper-proof turnstiles, electronic entry/egress access-control technologies (proximity cards, card readers, RFID tags, hand geometry, iris scanners, etc.) and video-surveillance equipment.

The MAC Portals can also be either purchased or leased from MSSI and they can integrate with any commercially available software system to generate reports, track worker time, prevent theft and issue payroll records. This allows the site operator to know which employees are on-site and for how long, and to ensure that any non-approved people cannot enter the facility, which will decrease the chances that theft or vandalism will occur. Another key capability of the MAC Portals is that they are portable, so if the configuration of the plant were to be changed, they can be easily and quickly relocated to a new entry/exit point. During a site’s construction phase, they can also be relocated to new areas as construction progresses.

Another benefit of both the BRMs and MAC Portals is that their size and portability allows them to be shipped to the plant site and installed quickly without the need for heavy machinery.

“We use equipment transport trailers to deliver our buildings with no cranes required for loading or offloading,” said Areno. “This ease of transportation is important, as it allows the BRM or MAC Portal to quickly be set up and made ready for use.”

Despite only being in operation since mid-September, the Sulphur facility has already lent support for the projects of two major PSG clients. First, it helped provide MAC Portals with a value in the millions of dollars and assisted in securing a large purchase order for BRMs from a global chemical and energy company for use during the buildout of a new petrochemical complex in southwest Louisiana. PSG is also supplying BRMs and MAC Portals to a global manufacturer and supplier of petrochemicals, polymers and fabricated building products that is based in the United States.

DropBox Inc. Expanding Manufacturing Capacity for Blast Modules

Posted on Mon, Sep 19, 2016 @ 09:09 AM

Portable Solutions Group, Inc., parent company of DropBox Inc., Modular Security Systems Inc. (MSSI), Johnny on the Spot, and Storage on the Spot is a world leader in providing of custom ISO shipping container modifications and portable jobsite solutions. Today PSG announced the expansion of manufacturing operations to an additional new location in Wurtland, KY to accommodate the rapid growth in current and future orders. With current operations at the Worthington location running three shifts, 24 hours a day seven days a week the need for additional space has become inevitable. “We are going to continue manufacturing out of our current facility at 801 Scott Street but really just need more space to keep up with our customer needs,” stated Robert Slagel, CEO/President of PSG. “An abundance of orders and the need for additional manufacturing space is really a great problem to have and we are excited about the opportunities this new facility provides.”

Located just two miles away from the Scott Street location, the additional manufacturing space will provide a perfect shipping container modification area for PSG. Complete with overhead cranes and over 50,000 square feet of manufacturing floor space the new location will more than double the company’s manufacturing footprint. A big part of the reason for the need for additional space is the recent customer demand for Blast Resistant Modules that DropBox Inc. will be building for its' own rental fleet. The added manufacturing space will give DropBox Inc. the ability to manufacture over-sized 12' wide Blast Modules more efficiently and utilize the over-head cranes at the new facility.  

shipping container modification, ISO Shipping container modifications, DropBox Inc, shipping container modifications, custom shipping container modification, custom container modification, blast resistant office, ISO shipping container modification, blast resistence, blast module, blast modulesThe Wurtland facility is currently owned by the J H Fletcher Company, and PSG will enter into a multi-year, progressive lease agreement with J H Fletcher to assume the floor space required for the additional manufacturing capacity.

“PSG’s new manufacturing space will allow us to increase our shipping container modification capabilities for key customers and to meet the demand of increasing orders for Blast Resistant Modules for customers around the world. The new space will allow us to expand our manufacturing operations to support orders already in on the books for 2017 as well as meet the need for new orders and the growth we are experiencing,” said Mr. Slagel. “Our whole team is excited about the growth we have experienced over the past couple of years and this move represents a commitment to continue to build on the success our team has accomplished.”

Portable Solutions Group is leading the world in providing portable jobsite solutions for industrial and commercial construction companies, the military, and governments. By offering turn-key ISO shipping container modifications for a wide range of jobsite solutions, PSG has built a reputable customer base around the world.
