Mark Dolman, MD of Portable Space with his team

A rapidly growing company based in Bacton, Suffolk, is announcing its most successful year to date, along with success in achieving three ISO accreditations.

Portable Space, which provides accommodation and storage units to a wide range of sectors, has completed its best year in the history of the company, with turnover up 16% on the previous 12 months.

The team has also expanded in line with business growth and now totals 41 people.

Earlier this year, the company’s in-house transport fleet was increased and now has ten state-of-the-art specialist vehicles equipped with cranes to deliver units across the UK.

The announcement of record results coincides with successful audits for three ISO accreditations: ISO14001 for environmental compliance; ISO9001:2015 for quality management systems; and ISO45001 for health and safety achievements.

Mark Dolman, managing director, attributes the record year to sustained growth across all areas of the business. He said: “We have diversified our product range to meet customer demand, particularly in the area of our flatpack units which are ideal for locations where access is restricted.

“We have also seen our large customers remain busy, strengthening our long-term relationships with new projects. Hire revenue has increased and our conversions business – where we use shipping containers and convert them for a wide range of uses – has been very strong with many exciting new applications coming through.

“During the year we have also reviewed our supply chain to improve lead-times which is already resulting in faster availability of products for our customers. This enhances further our customer service which has achieved excellent scores from Feefo, the ratings, reviews and customer analytics platform.

“All of these developments – including our new ISO accreditations – have been facilitated by our excellent team and I’d like to thank them all for their contribution to our success.”

In line with growth, Portable Space has also seen an expansion of its geographical reach in terms of customers which now extends to Birmingham and the M40.
