Although we have been established for a long time, at Universal Containers we don’t believe in being set in our ways and we have always recognised the need to move with the times.
With over 20 years experience in the shipping container industry, we are excited at the new trend of using shipping containers for more than large storage and transportation. Our favourite metal boxes are ticking all the right boxes in current architectural trends and speed and efficiency in construction. Conversions are becoming more and more popular around the world with examples ranging from housing and retail units to swimming pools and cinemas.
We have been converting shipping containers for quite some time, but due to the increasing popularity of conversions both in the UK and abroad, we are now expanding our facilities to include a brand new, state of the art workshop facility.
“The new workshop is designed for the development of prototype conversions”
We are ever keen to remain the market leaders in container conversions. Paul McAuliffe, Operations General Manager comments: “The expansion of the workshop facility from six buildings to eight will allow us to expand into new markets. This is especially exciting with the forthcoming prototype of the hydraulic multi use retail units we are producing.”
We have an overwhelming response and interest in recent concepts created by our team and we are eager to see these become a reality via research and development and ultimately production. Paul further comments:
“The additional work space will allow us to meet our customer deadlines and expectations in the future”
Senior Project Design Engineer, Carl Jeffries is also looking forward to the upcoming expansion; “Our latest expansion will enable Universal to exceed customers’ expectations both in lead time & quality. The additional space will also provide an area for development of prototype units for new, emerging markets.”
Whereas at Universal Containers, we pride ourselves on delivering high quality container conversions to the specification of our customer time and time again.
“We want to continue to be innovative in this evolving marketplace which is becoming more and more on trend”
So, what can you expect from Universal Containers once we have our new facility in place? Well, you’ll just have to watch this space, but rest assured we have very exciting ideas in store for these large metal boxes!
