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.

Manufactured at our Wurtland facility, DropBox Inc. has just completed its largest footprint to-date, the HEAF (High Explosives Applications Facility) chemical storage container. This multiyear project is 54' long and 15' wide and currently on its way to California.

Due to COVID-19, our team developed a new means of interface with the customer to support remote customer reviews during the design and manufacturing processes. This included web meetings to meet the customer's design requirements and demonstrate the functionality of various engineered systems, virtual models, and walk-throughs shot with a 360° camera. 

The container contained the following interior spaces:

      • Shelf Storage - 370 ft.of stainless steel
      • Casework - 20 linear ft. of laboratory casework and counters

      • Corrosives Storage - Acid storage lockers and emergency shower
      • Flammable Storage - Flammable storage lockers
      • Wet Lab - 4 ft. lab hood and 10 linear ft. of casework, sink, and counters

This unit was very unique to the current practices that DropBox Inc. uses. We utilized engineers, architects, and designers from all around the country to design this one-of-a-kind container. Unique features included:

      • Architectural - ADA design and H3 occupancy with 1-HR fire-rated walls
      • Structural - Custom enclosure designed Seismic Design Category F with 50 ft. trench drain sloped to one end and a sloped roof

The Journey of a DropBox Inc. ISO Shipping Container Modification

Posted on Tue, Jul 14, 2020 @ 09:07 AM

shipping container modification, DropBox Inc, ISO Shipping container, custom ISO shipping container modification, ISO shipping container modification, shipping container modification design, shipping container modification engineering, Portable Solutions Manufacturing, shipping container modification manufacturing, journey of a 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.

What are the Benefits of Offsite Construction?

Posted on Tue, Jul 07, 2020 @ 09:07 AM

DropBox Inc.'s offsite manufacturing facility allows us to assist companies with overcoming numerous obstacles that are associated with traditional construction techniques. Offsite construction, also known as modular construction, is defined as the planning, design, fabrication, and assembly of building elements at one location and relocating them to another location where they will be quickly and efficiently installed into a permanent structure. So how does this construction method benefit companies? Here’s what we know:

Altered Timelines

When working with large construction projects, most of them have a tendency to take longer to finish than originally planned due to unforeseen delays such as scheduling errors, weather, and more. One of the benefits of offsite construction is that it's completed in nearly half the time of traditional construction. Unlike traditional construction, offsite construction allows the structure to be built in a controlled location once it arrives on site while the site is being prepared.

Less Site Disruption

When working on an offsite location, project managers will experience reduced costs associated with setup, personnel, materials, and equipment.

Guaranteed Craftsmen & Workers

By using a modular approach, each build is handled through fully staffed manufacturing practices including welding/fabrication, painting, carpentry, electrical, HVAC, and plumbing.

Design-Build vs. Design-Bid-Build Process

By combining both design and construction services within the same entity, project owners will receive faster delivery, less associated risk, cost-effective materials and methods, and integrated services all under one contract.

What are the Benefits of Building with Shipping Containers?

Posted on Tue, Jun 23, 2020 @ 14:06 PM

When deciding whether or not a shipping container modification is right for you and your company, it's important to understand how they're built and what benefits they offer.

Shipping container modifications provide a greater strength than traditional stick-built construction because they are made of corrosive resistant, high-strength, low-alloy steel. The ISO shipping container is built to withstand the harshest conditions and be reused for different needs when necessary. Other benefits include:

        • Durability: Shipping containers are able to withstand most natural events and heavy weather conditions such as snow, wind, fire, etc due to being built out of weathered steel
        • Ease of Use: Their portability allows them to be transported from site to site and stacked to increase space 
        • Speedy Construction: Compared to traditional construction, shipping container modifications can be completed in half the time due to many details being able to be completed at the production site
