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.

Ashland Alliance Community Leadership Development Brings Tour Group to Worthington Facility

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

DropBox Inc, shipping container modifications company, MSSI, Portable Solutions Group, Ashland CLD

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!

Portable Solutions Group Major Award Winner for Q1 2019

Posted on Wed, Apr 17, 2019 @ 07:04 AM

Portable Solutions Group Major Award Winner for Q1 2019

At Portable Solutions Group (PSG), parent company to DropBox inc. and Modular Security Systems Inc., we work with customers around the world to build portable, turn-key solutions for a wide range of applications. From customizable guard offices with turnstiles, vehicle barrier gates, access control, and climate-controlled guard offices to restrooms, showers, and much more, we take every step needed to provide functionality, deliverability, and the optimization of a restricted footprint and make things happen. 

In recognition of all the hard work that we do, PSG has been awarding a quarterly “Major Award” similar to that received by "The Old Man" (Ralphie's dad) in 1983's A Christmas Story. The award is given to employees who go the extra mile to get the job done. 

Being open to the imagination of our customers’ needs with consideration to the products we build is a lot of work and requires the attention of a lot of behind-the-scenes folks. While our salespeople, engineers, and designers lead the charge out front, a large group of office staff keeps things rolling and makes sure the ship keeps sailing on down the river.

With those hardworking people in mind, it is with great pleasure that we have awarded the 2019 Q1 Major Award to Donna Vanover-McGlothin. Donna began her career with PSG in 2017 as our Accounts Receivable and Payroll Administrator. 

Since coming aboard Donna has worked very hard to help the companies with account balances and accounts receivable and has maintained payroll for our more than 100 employees.

We'd like to take this opportunity to congratulate Donna for all of her success and hard work. Way to go, Donna! Congratulations!
