S Jones Container Services workshop expansion to cope with container modification demand
S Jones Container Services Ltd have this week applied for planning permission to expand their workshops in Anglian Road, Aldridge in order to accommodate for growing demand in the Container Modification area of their Container Hire and Sales business. The expansion plan aims to increase productivity and shorten customer lead times.
It is believed that a minimum of 5 jobs will be created in Aldridge as a result of the expansion plan, S Jones currently employ over 30 people in the area in a vast array of roles from manufacturing to office based.
Predominantly, the workshop expansion will aid growing demand for customers requiring modified containers to house processes and equipment both domestically and for shipment abroad.
S Jones, a family business, was first formed as a transport company in 1914 and entered the shipping container business in the 1970’s during the container revolution (See History). This expansion plan reflects a time of continued development and growth for S Jones Container Services Ltd whose nationwide container hire, sale and modification business and Self Storage businesses in Aldridge and West Bromwich have experienced increased business of late. Should the planning permission request be accepted, S Jones hope that the increased productivity will better serve their Nationwide customers.
