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.

DropBox Inc, MSSI, Worthington KY, Portable Solutions Group, Robert Slagel, Portable Solutions Manufacturing, Wurtland KY, Modular Security Systems, Inc., Combilift, Daisy

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.

DropBox Inc, MSSI, Portable Solutions Group, major award, Modular Security Systems, Inc.

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.

As the world continues to combat the spread of COVID-19, many manufacturing companies are answering President Trump's call and joining the fight by building medical products, donating supplies, and more. In order to continue protecting those who are on the front lines, Portable Solutions Group has donated N95 respiratory masks to both Kings Daughters Medical Center's coronavirus testing center that's being set up in Grayson, Kentucky, and to DASCO Home Medical Equipment. At PSG, the masks are normally used for protecting employees during any high dust/sanding application.

Each location will be using the masks for different purposes while in contact with patients. KDMC employees will be using the masks while swabbing patients' mouths and noses in order to test them for COVID-19. DASCO Home Medical Equipment employees will be using the masks while setting up medical equipment for their patients. The goal of donating these masks is to ensure that essential medical employees and their patients are protected during this time. By doing so, we can help slow the progression of COVID-19 and keep those who are at risk safe. 

At Portable Solutions Group, we encourage everyone to continue staying safe, secure, and healthy by staying home when possible, practicing social distancing, washing hands regularly, and cleaning common areas in order to avoid the spread of germs. According to the CDC, If you think you have been exposed to COVID-19 and develop a fever and symptoms, such as cough or difficulty breathing, call your healthcare provider for medical advice.

PSG Prepares for Coronavirus by Purchasing a Surplus of Materials

Posted on Tue, Mar 10, 2020 @ 08:03 AM

DropBox Inc, MSSI, Portable Solutions Group, Portable Solutions Manufacturing, coronavirus

Since 2020 first began, cases of coronavirus have been increasing and causing global travel to be disrupted. As a result, the exporting of goods from various countries has rapidly decreased. This has caused the global shipping container trade to be affected by delivery delays due to calls to certain ports being reduced and shipments being re-routed.

So what does this mean for PSG and its family of companies? Well, as the spread of coronavirus began to cause these issues, our companies began to discuss how they could best prepare for the delay. By doing so, they are now prepared to complete future builds for customers during the outbreak. 

Ronnie Kearns, Head of Manufacturing and Procurement, said, "In a effort to protect our customers, due to delayed shipping of materials from overseas, PSG reached out to steel and container vendors to evaluate their stock levels of materials forecasted for future builds. In doing this, we found that there was an expected shortage of materials due to delays in shipments to our suppliers. Working with our suppliers, we were able to purchase enough material to protect upcoming orders for our customers for the next several months."

At Portable Solutions Group, we ensure that our customers receive their products in a quick and efficient manner no matter what challenges we may face. Through years of experience within numerous industries, we have become a leader in shipping container modification and are always prepared by being one step ahead. As a result, we are Reinventing the Box™ for customers all around the world!
