PSG ANNOUNCES 2020 FOURTH QUARTER MAJOR AWARD WINNER

In honor of hard work and a "can-do" attitude, Portable Solutions Group and its family of companies (DropBox Inc., Modular Security Systems Inc., and Portable Solutions Manufacturing) recognizes William (Will) Pendleton as the 2020 fourth quarter recipient of its Major Award. Will currently serves as the Integration Manager. Over the last year, Will has continued to grow in his roles. Originally hired as a designer, he quickly showed capabilities in integrating various technologies with our existing processes. A needed position was created dedicated towards integrating technology to support Portable Solutions Group’s growth.

Will continues to bring forward his experiences from previous employers including Northrop Grumman and Machine and Components Industries as well as his current educational path in software engineering. With these experiences, we have automated systems to support our companies and their customers. With the help of the design team, Will has automated the design process and now most products can be modeled and documented in days rather than weeks. He has worked with the process engineer to implement computer workstations on the manufacturing floor. He has worked with management to consolidate our IT infrastructure into the Wurtland facility while keeping business activities unaffected. He has worked with access control partners to test and implement new technologies including the thermal systems installed in the MAC Safe-T-Check™ products.

As we move into 2021, the focus will turn towards communication. We are going to work with all departments and find ways to use existing and new technologies to make our daily work more efficient. This allows more focus on customers and their products. 

Portable Solutions Group’s continued customer focus would not be possible without Will and his leadership. We would like to congratulate Will Pendleton for winning the Major Award and wish him continued success with our family of companies.

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.

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.
