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!

Well PSG and its family of companies sure did! To celebrate this national holiday, and one of America's favorite winter dishes, our team came together to enjoy some bowls of hot chili with each other on this snowy day.

Many of our employees brought their different chili recipes for the rest of their coworkers to try. From no-bean chili to white chicken chili, the day gave each of them a chance to express themselves through cooking. And even those who didn't bring chili joined in on the fun by bringing crackers, peanut butter sandwiches, and desserts.

PSG and its family of companies value every employee and their hard work. They also realize that it's important to have a fun work environment to preserve and continue to increase morale. By doing so, they will be motivated to Reinvent the Box™ for our customers!

With Christmas being just around the corner, it's important to remember what the holiday season is all about: family and friends. And what better way to celebrate Christmas with those important people than with ugly sweaters? On Wednesday, December 18th, PSG and its family of companies held their second annual ugly sweater contest!

Throughout the day, many different employees wore bright and colorful sweaters that not only celebrated the holiday, but allowed them to show off their individual personalities as well. From funny animals to famous cartoon characters to the classic Santa Claus, each sweater was fun and unique its very own way. And after serious deliberation from our company's secret panel of judges, the winners of the contest were announced. We would like to congratulate Frank Massie (top left) and Rodger Miller (top right) for winning the contest and taking home the ugly sweater ornaments as their prizes!

However, the fun didn't stop after the announcement of the winners. Each manufacturing facility was given pizza, chips, and holiday cookies to thank them for a job well done this year!

We would like to thank every employee who participated in the ugly sweater contest this year for their involvement and hope that everyone has a fun and safe holiday break with their friends and family. As this year reaches an end, PSG and its family of companies look forward to what the year of 2020 has to bring.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

PSG Quarterly Newsletter Provides Subscribers with Company News!

Posted on Tue, Nov 26, 2019 @ 15:11 PM

DropBox Inc, MSSI, Portable Solutions Group, PSG Quarterly Newsletter

Did you know that Portable Solutions Group sends out a newsletter every quarter to keep subscribers informed about employees, company events, and more? We believe that it's important for our community to feel a personal connection to our companies. By developing this connection, we are able to form a special relationship with them.

The newsletter is sent out at the end of each quarter and is filled with the companies' most interesting stories that occurred during that time. This allows our subscribers to stay up to date on what goes on inside of our offices and also the people who work in them. 

When asked why the newsletter was started, Megan Coffey, Newsletter Founder and PSG Executive Assistant, said:

I started the quarterly newsletter as a way to share both big news and everyday moments with our friends, family, and community members. A lot of employees in the PSG family of companies are always working to make meaningful connections both inside and outside our organization. Our CEO, Robert Slagel, and I had seen some other companies’ newsletters, and we felt like a quarterly update would be a great way to showcase what we’re all up to. We try to share everything from contest winners to goal-setting to winning big contracts… celebrations, community events, etc. It’s my hope for the future to see the newsletter continue to highlight the secret to our success – our people.

Ashland Alliance Community Leadership Development Brings Tour Group to Worthington Facility

Posted on Thu, Oct 17, 2019 @ 16:10 PM

Just like our President & CEO, Robert Slagel, our company's goals are to grow jobs in Appalachia and to restore a level of hope to the people of Appalachia through direct or indirect job creation. As a result, Slagel and his companies have been seen as inspirations by the people of the Tri-State area. More specifically, the group known as the Ashland Alliance Community Leadership Development (CLD).

On Wednesday, October 16th, this group visited our Worthington facility where they learned about what products we make, our manufacturing process, and much more. Miles Duncil, Marketing/SEO/SEM, led the tour of the facility. Duncil said, "I’ve been doing the tours of our facility since 2011. I really enjoy the opportunity to meet community members, talk about the great products that we offer, and discuss the jobs we work to create right here in eastern Kentucky. 

The Ashland CLD visits industry leaders within the Tri-State in order for their groups to gain insight on each company's process and to see how each leader got to where they are today. Being one of the few job creators in the area, PSG has been given the opportunity to become a part of their tours. By allowing them to tour our facility, they no longer have to travel as far as South Shore, KY and Portsmouth, OH to find businesses to visit.

We would like to thank the Ashland CLD and the individuals involved for taking the time to visit our facility, and we look forward to your next visit!
