With more than 1,600 skilled workers and over 100 Visitor and Hire Centres – Portakabin has the technical capabilities to lead the market

The technical capabilities of Portakabin are unsurpassed in the modular construction industry.

Advanced manufacturing capabilities
We employ more than 1,600 colleagues across Europe, recruited for their specialist skills and knowledge, ensuring that we manufacture the highest standard of buildings and deliver them to customers exactly when they are needed.

Our buildings are manufactured at three sites – our vast 250,000m2 facility in York, UK and our European assembly plants in Crespin, France and Halle, Germany.

Innovation in modular construction
Our in-house technical expertise has enabled us to develop the most advanced modular manufacturing processes, which takes modular building versatility and aesthetics to a new level. Our expertise has also enabled us to develop Europe’s largest stand-alone modular building, the Portakabin Titan Building, which offers up to 67m2 of floor space in a single building.

These and other innovations in building design have earned Portakabin a host of awards and accreditations, including category wins for Design and Build in the Building Excellence Awards and Off-site Construction Awardwas the first modular building supplier to win approval to display the CE mark on selected building products.

Extensive Visitor and Hire Centre network
the largest network of Visitor and Hire Centres in each country where we operate – ensuring our buildings are easily accessible for customers in all regions. We have more than 90 Visitor and Hire Centres in the UK, and over 30 in France, Holland, Luxembourg, Germany and Belgium.

Unparalleled delivery performance
Such proximity to our customers, combined with the expertise and dedication of our colleagues, enables us to live up to our Customer Charter promise by completing 99.7% of projects on time and on budget.1

Such unrivalled delivery performance is the reason that, ten years since we launched our first Customer Charter, we are still the only building supplier to back up our on time and on budget commitment with the promise of meaningful compensation if we ever fail to deliver.
