Happy Thanksgiving

From our family to yours, Portable Solutions Group and its family of companies (DropBox Inc., Modular Security Systems, Inc., Portable Solutions Manufacturing) would like to wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving. During this year of uncertainty, we feel that it's important to remember who and what we are thankful for. So for this Thanksgiving, we decided to go around and ask some of our coworkers (including our furry friends!) what they are thankful for!

From new additions to the family to technology that helps us stay connected to loved ones, our work family had many different things they wanted to write down! Katie Clark, Marketing Manager, said, "I was so excited to see everybody participate in this activity for the holidays. Throughout our lives, and especially this year, I think it's important to reflect and remember what we've been blessed with. It was just nice to see how happy these different things made everyone!"

As for our customers, we would like to give you all a special thanks as well for your continued support and making us an addition to your team. Throughout the years, you have trusted as your design/build partner and for that we are truly thankful. We look forward to working with all of you in the future and hope you have a wonderful holiday!

Our friends at Combilift arrived at our facility in Worthington, Kentucky to interview DropBox, Inc.'s President/CEO, Robert Slagel, about our family of companies' (Portable Solutions Group, DropBox, Inc., Modular Security Systems, Inc., Portable Solutions Manufacturing) use of Combilift products to handle our large, heavy products and supplies.

"Our company’s relationship with Combilift has been positively transformative. The unique Combilift products and space optimization advice has allowed us to save millions of dollars in manufacturing efficiencies," said Slagel.

In 2015, our company purchased a custom Combilift-SC (Straddle Carrier) that is now named "Daisy" to load, unload, and transport shipping container modifications for manufacturing operations. Our team worked with Combilift to design this custom 

straddle carrier in an effort to manage manufacturing space at the Worthington location more efficiently. With this piece of equipment, DropBox Inc. has been able to better utilize the 50,000 sq. ft. of manufacturing space.

We would like to thank the Combilift team for visiting our facilities and giving our team the opportunity to not only show you what your products have done for our operation, but for also allowing us to show you what we are currently working on, our processes, and future endeavors.

In honor of hard work and a "can-do" attitude, Portable Solutions Group recognizes Jennifer Caldwell as the 2020 third quarter recipient of its Major Award. Jennifer currently serves as the Assistant Design Manager. Over the last year and a half, Jennifer has continued to grow in her design role and has led the design team on some of Portable Solutions Group’s largest projects.
 
Towards the end of 2019, Jennifer took the lead design role for the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory B191 Chemical Storage Building. Not only was it the single largest footprint to date, but she also coordinated the designs of multiple engineers and architects into highly customized design documents. Jennifer followed that project by leading the Ramsey, NJ project for AdEdge Technologies. She coordinated the design of seven different custom enclosures in seven weeks to meet a very aggressive design schedule.
 
During 2020, Jennifer led Design 3.0 design efforts. Using custom automation tools, she created a content center that linked to our manufacturing inventory system. Jennifer and the rest of the design group are currently finishing up efforts to redesign all MSSI MAC products to be design and manufacturing sustainable into the future.
 
Portable Solutions Group is continuing to ship products to its customers, and it would not be possible without Jennifer and her design leadership. We would like to congratulate Jennifer Caldwell for winning the Major Award and wish her continued success with our family of companies.
