A Teesside-based hirer of secure storage containers and portable site accommodation has announced the opening of its flagship London branch at Gravesend in Kent.
Mobile Mini, which has its head office in Stockton, is opening its new branch, the company’s largest yet, following the merger of its existing Gravesend branch with its former branch in South Ockendon, Essex.
An investment of more than £800,000 into the expanded and upgraded five-acre site has enabled Mobile Mini to meet increasing demand across London and the South East.
The investment, which has facilitated extensive workshop facility upgrades as well as new offices and additional storage space, allows the company to increase capacity, reduce lead times and further build on its reputation for exceptional customer service.
Responsible for the team of 47 based at Gravesend, branch manager Lisa Jones – pictured above with Mobile Mini’s new southern regional director Phil Hughes – said: “This consolidation into one larger, better equipped site will allow us to grow the business faster, work more efficiently and is great for employee morale.”
The firm’s managing director Chris Morgan said: “These are exciting times at Mobile Mini, as we go through this period of investment and growth, whilst still striving to maintain our reputation for exceeding customer expectations.
“London and the South East is an area where we have seen exceptionally strong growth, and our new larger branch will help to sustain that growth in the coming years.”
