Case Study of the Month

5th May, 2023

20ft workshop with RJS beam

This shipping container workshop is fitted with a specialist RSJ beam to support heavy load-bearing. Our client, Mitsubishi Chemical Group, required specialist lifting equipment too, which we provided with certification. We also fitted a steel workbench with a vice. We supplied two of these workshops, plus two accompanying 20ft containers for storage.

Our converted workshops can be designed to fit your exact requirements, as with this case study. Alternatively our WorkBox products give you a set package of features for a basic workshop at a budget price.
