BALTIMORE (May 31, 2013) – WillScot, an Algeco Scotsman company and leading provider of modular space and storage solutions in North America, today announced several of its modular units have been deployed to multiple New Jersey beach towns post Hurricane Sandy.
“Our modular units will be up and down the East Coast this summer, allowing towns like Belmar and Avon-by-the-Sea to reopen for their busiest summer tourist season,” said Joseph Vecchiolla, president of WillScot. “The speed and simplicity of modular space provides a viable solution for small businesses and local governments looking to rebuild after a natural disaster. We are glad to be part of the rebuilding efforts.”
WillScot supplied Belmar Township in New Jersey with multiple modular units to be used as restroom facilities, umbrella and chair rental stands and first aid stations. The company also provided its new Moduflex™ unit to a boutique clothing store, so the small business could be open to shoppers by the start of the summer season.
WillScot has a range of products and services available under its Disaster Recovery Program. As a mobile space provider for more than 50 years, the company can provide immediate space solutions for emergency solutions including offices for medical, business and administrative use, commercial storage units, classrooms, as well as bathroom and locker facilities.
Previously, the company played a critical role in helping to rebuild after Hurricanes Rita and Katrina. WillScot played a vital role within New Orleans’ Recovery School District, providing 500,000 square feet of modular classroom space to seven different school sites after Hurricane Katrina.
“WillScot is dedicated to assisting in disaster relief efforts whenever possible,” said Vecchiolla. “We are hopeful that our efforts will help the Jersey Shore region return to a sense of normalcy in the coming weeks and summer months.”
