AN INDUSTRY LEADER FOR 60+ YEARS
WillScot is North America’s leading space problem solver. Located throughout the United States, Canada and Mexico, we provide businesses and organizations a temporary environment to learn, live, recover, work and play. Our product line includes the industry’s largest inventory of mobile office trailers, portable classrooms, modular complexes and panelized modular units ready to work where and when you need them. Our storage containers can house whatever you need safely and securely. We never lose sight of the fact that our products and services must remain current and effective for what you, our customer, needs.
We've been dealing with temporary space needs for quite a while – since 1955 to be exact – when Albert Vaughn (“A.V.”) Williams patented the technology used to build a mobile office. With more than 80-million square feet of assets ready to mobilize, we deliver solutions that run the gamut from a simple construction office trailer to a multi-unit complex – and everything in between.
Headquartered in the historic Fell’s Point area of Baltimore, Maryland, we are proud to be the modular supplier of choice for the construction, education, healthcare, government, retail, commercial, transportation, security and energy sectors. With over a half century of innovative history, organic growth and strategic acquisitions, our customer base has grown to 40,000 across all industries. Our customers are served by dedicated sales and service teams operating branches that are an integral part of their local communities in 120+ locations.
