Productive and secure

Workshops are a necessity in many scenarios; on the worksite, mine site or even in the backyard for the growing home business. For any of these options a prime requirement is space in which one can work comfortably. Building a bricks-and-mortar solution, or even a shed, can be a long and expensive process. A more efficient option is the modification of a shipping container and having all the necessary features installed to carry out your tasks.  Are you ready to make a container into a tailored mobile workshop for yourself, your home business or your company?

Cost-effective and affordable at just a fraction of the price of traditional alternatives.

Flexible and mobile so they can be easily transported between sites when required.

Faster turnaround than traditional methods, giving you shorter construction times.

High quality, durable construction provides safety and security no matter the site specifics.

Workshops Modifications

Common inclusions

There can be vast differences between one workshop to the next, depending on the types of work carried out. There are however a few common elements that are usually included.

Add a Roller Door

A roller door provides easy access and can assist in making loading and unloading easier.

Add Hanging Hooks

Make the most of space by adding hanging hooks for storage. 

Add Benches

Adding benches is a given for most workshops.

Add Electrics

Providing power to electrical equipment, lighting and more.

Benefits of a Workshop being made from a Shipping Container

Creating a workshop from a shipping container provides a modulated, secure and transportable solution that is unachievable with traditional sheds and building structures.

  • Range of modifications and equipment inclusions available
  • Various size options to suit your requirements
