Celebrating our 110th anniversary

To celebrate our 110th year of the family business, and 25 years as S Jones Containers, we are excited to kickstart our ambitious growth plans with the launch of four dedicated business divisions.

Our new market offering comprises four specialist divisions:

  • Container Sales
  • Container Hire
  • Conversions
  • Modular Buildings

Our specialist divisions streamline our business and will further elevate the exceptional service we deliver to our customers. Each division strengthens our reputation as a leader in creating and providing bespoke container space solutions.

No matter what your specialist needs are, we have a team catered to meet your requirements without compromising on the value, expertise, and reliability that we are well-known for.

Our 110-year history

Established in 1914 by Samuel ‘Sammy’ Jones, our story began as a haulage contractor by horse and cart before acquiring our first motor lorry in 1920.

By 1970, we were at the forefront of the container revolution, offering depot services to both the shipping industry and fledgling container manufacturers at our Aldridge depot. We are still based in Aldridge and remain to be one of the longest established and largest depots in the West Midlands.

Continued business growth

With the establishment of S Jones Containers as a dedicated container-focused business in 1999, Andrew Jones joined his father, Michael Jones, as Managing Director – making Andrew the 4th generation to continue the Jones family business.

Today, S Jones Containers boasts a team of 50, including a team of in-house specialist engineers with the capability to modify shipping containers to meet the rigorous ISO 9001 and JOSCAR certification standards. Our clients include a plethora of globally and nationally recognised businesses, including Siemens and Coventry University.

The journey continues

In the last 15 years, S Jones Containers has seen its trading activities soar by more than 30 times, solidifying our position as an industry leader. We’re one of the few facilities in the UK that can not only create bespoke converted units for ourselves but also for other businesses worldwide. Additionally, we design and deliver modular building projects for diverse applications such as workplaces and educational facilities.

“We have come a long way since our original founding in 1914,” says Andrew Jones, Managing Director of S Jones Containers. “Over the last 110 years, we have continued to bring a personal touch to each interaction we have, and above all, ensuring that our customers’ expectations have been fully met, if not exceeded. Today, our ethos remains the same, which is to provide an outstanding experience for our clients and by extension, their customers. Our new divisions will enable us to sharpen our focus on delivering excellence across every specialism within our portfolio.”

“In the coming years, we have big plans on how we can take S Jones Containers brand to the next level and lead the way in contained space solutions.”
