Record year for Mobile Mini with activity aplenty

By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 6 Apr 2018

MOBILE Mini is a leading hirer of portable site accommodation and secure storage containers, with its area branch in Immingham, UK operations nationwide and global headquarters in Arizona, USA. 

Here, Mobile Mini’s growing fleet now stands at more than 40,000 rental units across its 15 branches, from Glasgow to Southampton. 

Mobile Mini has been supplying portable site accommodation and secure storage containers for more than 40 years, with about 17,300 customers, primarily in the construction industry, but also including retailers, manufacturers, hospitals, schools, utility companies, distributors, hotels and individual households. 

The company recently announced that turnover had reached £66.6 million in 2017, an 11.3 per cent increase on the previous year.  

Revenue has been driven in part by a significant investment by the company in growing its fleet of storage containers and portable offices, canteens and welfare facilities. 

Further investment has also seen Mobile Mini expand, improve and relocate several of its branches to increase capacity and further improve product quality.

Continued investment in people has also seen the company’s total workforce grow to 442, backed up by a record investment in training and development.

Revenue growth was also supported by the double acquisition of rival container companies Containers 2000 and Mr Box at the end of 2016, which gave the company the opportunity to strengthen its existing container hire and sales business, as well as extending its presence in key non-construction markets.

Chris Morgan, managing director at Mobile Mini, said: “2017 has been another successful year. We’re determined to maintain our market leading position by continuing to invest in our people and products, so that we exceed our customers’ expectations and continue to build strong long term relationships with them.”
