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.

      • 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
