Pioneering off-site construction specialists 
We are part of the Portakabin Group, which was established more than 60 years ago as the pioneer of off-site modular construction. The company has spearheaded innovation in modular construction ever since, and now operates in seven countries, employing more than 1,600 people.

Advanced, large-scale manufacturing capabilities
At our advanced 250,000m2 lean manufacturing plant in York, we employ design, architecture, manufacturing, engineering and project-management specialists to deliver the highest standards of modular construction. We are committed to investing heavily in the latest production technology, enabling us to remain at the forefront of design and innovation in off-site construction.

Reputable, financially stable business
As a long-established, reputable and financially stable business, the Portakabin Group has been awarded a credit score rating of 1 by Dun and Bradstreet. This puts the business in the top 15% of UK companies, with a very low probability of business failure. We believe we are the only modular building supplier to achieve such a high credit rating – giving you the assurance that we will be around to provide ongoing support for the long term.

Prestigious parent company
The Portakabin Group is part of the Shepherd Group, one of the UK’s leading family-owned businesses, with a turnover of around £700m. It has a 120-year history of quality craftsmanship in the construction and manufacturing sectors.

Unique on time, on budget delivery promise
To give you complete confidence in our ability to deliver precisely the building you need, right on schedule and to budget, we have a unique Customer Charter pledge. We are the only modular building provider to promise to complete your project on time and on budget. And that’s a promise we back up. In the unlikely event that we ever fail to deliver your building on time or to the agreed contract sum, we will refund 1% of the contract value for every week the project is delayed.1

That’s a level of reassurance and a commitment to accurate delivery that no other modular building supplier is prepared to make.
