Is your business bursting at the seams? Williams Scotsman will accommodate your needs. The company makes, leases, sells, and manages mobile offices, storage containers, and related structures for the public and commercial markets in North America. Customers include government agencies, schools, and hospitals. The company maintains a fleet of some 100,000 offices, portable classrooms, and storage units, which it leases through a network of about 80 branch locations. Formed through the 1990 merger of Williams Mobile Offices and Scotsman Manufacturing, Williams Scotsman is part of Algeco Scotsman (along with European counterparts Algeco and Elliott). It was acquired by UK fund manager TDR Capital in 2007.
Williams Scotsman is among the largest providers of mobile commercial structures in North America. It serves a wide array of industries, providing mobile space for such uses as workforce housing for remote locations and on-site construction trailers. Another niche it serves is the disaster recovery market, for which it is ready to provide on the quick temporary housing, medical clinics, schools, and other sites.
The company has expanded its fleet through acquisitions such as the 2011 purchase of Lamar Space, which added more than 700 units in Southern California. Williams Scotsman also builds permanent modular structures to suit. – less
