We supply containers to a variety of business sectors for many different uses.
We recently delivered a 20ft open sided container to The West Midlands Fire Service. The container is being used to store operational equipment as there is a shortage of space at the station.
Our customer commented, “using the container provides a cost effective option rather than investing in building alterations. Should our training requirements change in the future, this also provides us with a transferable solution minimising future costs.”

Adams Bakery, trading as Heathrow Bakery, supplies baked goods for the airline and prepared meal industry, producing 2million rolls per week.
When they recently needed a bespoke boiler housing in a hurry to cope with expansion, they turned to us, the specialists in shipping container conversions and solutions.
We have supplied three modified containers as custom-made enclosures for a Babcock steam boiler and Heuft oil boilers.
Heathrow Bakery general manager David Taylor explained: “We were searching for someone who could provide a cost-effective bespoke enclosure in a very short time. We couldn’t put the boilers inside our current buildings and so custom-made enclosures were the answer to our problem.
“Steam from the Babcock boiler is required for the baking process in the proofer to raise the bread and in the oven to control the yeast and create shine on the crust.
“The other container enclosure is for the oil heaters which heat the ovens.”
We supplied two 40’ high cube shipping containers joined together to create a double-width clear-span enclosure, and one 20’ unit for the bespoke bakery boiler housings.
David Taylor said the shipping container conversion allowed their engineers to be more efficient in the maintenance of the equipment.
“From the moment we approached them, S Jones were superb from the inquiry through design to the final product delivered to site.
“The team provided design and support with very good technical advice for all three of the shipping containers supplied. The whole process was handled professionally and competently throughout and we now have three containers in place as per the design drawing and exactly for the purpose required,” he said.
Our team of specialist design engineers can convert containers into highly sophisticated containerised solutions for equipment and processes worldwide - for test facilities, power generation, solar farm electrical enclosures, restuarant complexes, water pumps, fire suppression, housing, and a host of other applications.

We were recently approached by a company who provide boutique camping accommodation at some of the UK's favourite music festivals. Their requirement was for a space that could serve as a flexible transport container as well as a public facing customer reception.
Katt, Project Manager at Pitch Village commented, 'S Jones were fantastic, helping us design a bespoke unit full of features such as power sockets, lighting and anti-condensation treatment - as well as more bespoke elements such as welcoming bi-folding doors, and an integrated shelving system. We are delighted with our S Jones container and look forward to working with them in the future.'

We’ve recently completed and delivered a container which has been converted into a bar which forms part of a quirky outdoor events area at the newly renovated Beech House pub in Solihull. The bar features an oak laminate food safe worktop with bi-folding doors, an under counter washer unit, chillers and bar units with power sockets. The container bar has been painted in a vibrant green and a polyester awning has been attached to the roof to keep customers dry whilst enjoying a beverage or two!
Outside the container bar is an impressive tepee which boasts ambient lighting and wooden seating which can accommodate up to 120 guests for all sorts of celebrations. Dan, General Manager of the Beech House, pictured below with our MD Andrew Jones says he has received over 50 bookings for private parties in the last month!
Just another example of how versatile shipping containers are. We can turn customers’ creative ideas into reality. Our team is knowledge based and highly informed with technical know-how.
Contact us to discuss your requirements.
If you are in need of short-term storage why not hire one or more of our containers, they are ideal to accommodate any overflow stock, particularly when preparing for the busy Christmas period.

Don’t miss out on sales opportunities to competitors due to lack of stock. We can position your container close to your store for easy access to ensure your shelves are continually replenished!
Our Depot Manager Andy Cargill is going under the razor on Friday 26th August for Macmillan cancer support.
For 10 years Andy’s Mum, Liz, has been looked after by Macmillan after the diagnosis of a brain tumour.
Andy commented “I cannot put in to words the affect that cancer has had on our family. Macmillan have been a tremendous support to both my Mum and Dad so because of this I would like to raise as much money as possible so Macmillan can continue to support those who need it.”
Andy has had long hair since he was 15 but it will all be coming off on Friday, a day before Andy’s Mum & Dad’s 45th wedding anniversary!
Please give what you can, it will all be extremely gratefully received and it all makes a difference. Macmillan makes a real difference to real people's lives; when they need it most.
