The new branch, the company’s largest yet, has been created 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 enables 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 London, branch manager Lisa Jones 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.”

Speaking about the growth currently being seen by the company, 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.”

The company has a national network of 15 branches with almost 40,000 portable units which provide site accommodation and secure storage containers to approximately 17,300 customers including: construction companies, retailers, manufacturers, hospitals, schools, utility companies; distributors, hotels and many more.

The company has also announced the appointment of Phil Hughes as regional director for the south.

Phil brings 30 years’ experience within the industry and will be responsible for providing strong leadership to the southern regional team as well as further improving its excellent customer service and helping to drive profitable growth.

He said: “It’s great to be a part of an organisation with exceptional people who are constantly looking to improve the overall customer service and experience – something I hope to strengthen during my time with the company.”
