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.

The Journey of a DropBox Inc. ISO Shipping Container Modification

When a standard ISO shipping container arrives onto our manufacturing floor, it must go through a few steps before it's ready to be shipped to our customers. In today's blog, we will be discussing the journey a shipping container takes to become a DropBox Inc. shipping container modification.

Once it's determined what the shipping container is going to be and our CAD department releases the manufacturing drawing set, the cutouts are made and reinforcements are put into place to support doors, windows, or anything else that's going into the cutouts.

After welding and fabrication is complete, the shipping container is sandblasted to prepare the surface for paint or other coatings by spraying sand at a high speed to remove any dirt, grime, and/or rust that may have formed. It's then taken to our state-of-the-art paint booth that has heated air to fully dry or bake in the finished paint. The manufacturing team then begins the internal carpentry, wiring, insulation, interior walls, and plumbing.

Finally, the surfaces, fixtures, electric, and HVAC systems are installed. Then, once the quality inspection is completed to ensure that everything has been done properly, the product is ready to be loaded onto a flatbed or roll-off trailer to be shipped to its final destination.

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!

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!
