Starting with a sound base.

ISO shipping containers are designed to transport goods around the world, meaning they are extremely strong and secure. They are mass produced to meet worldwide demand for exported goods, meaning that they are relatively low cost and their robust build quality means that they are ideal for converting for a variety of uses. We can transform a container from a standard storage box to a unique modular structure.


We modify containers to be used as market stalls, exhibition stands, pop-up shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, as well as for industrial purposes. Their robust construction and industrial design means that containers can add a rustic, trendy addition to many environments – the possibilities are endless!

Box clever – we are experienced at what we do.

The current rise in popularity of the use of converted shipping containers for structural developments such as bars, pop-up shops and retail spaces has opened up countless opportunities for us as a bespoke manufacturer. Our experience, coupled with our technical know how and creativity, places us as a proven option in what is often seen as a relatively new industry.


Our design services include CAD drawings and 3D visualisations to ensure that your requirements are met and the project goes to plan.


Throughout the development process we build solid working relationships to enable effective knowledge transfer and co-create value.


We have a passion for manufacturing and stay married to the job to ensure that the desired results are delivered every time.

We take on all shapes and sizes.

Using a shipping container as the basis of your modular structure allows you to choose from a range of ISO shapes and sizes. From 8ft to 40ft, we have experience of working with them all, but if you need to go beyond the standard sizes, we can manufacture a box to your specification from scratch.
