NEW YORK (March 7, 2016)
– WillScot, an Algeco Scotsman company and leading provider of modular space and storage solutions in North America, is showcasing Flex™, its panelized, portable space solution, in booth #B50 at the New York Build 2016 expo and convention at the Javits Center in New York from March 7-8.
Flex is a panelized modular space unit that offers flexibility and multiple design options to optimize customers’ temporary modular space. Unlike traditional temporary modular units, Flex units can expand vertically, offering customers the option to stack units up to three stories high. The units feature double-glazed windows, reinforced floors, a galvanized steel frame and a ceiling height of more than 8 feet.
“We introduced this product primarily in New York in 2012. It quickly became very popular among our customers across industries, leading to a broader launch strategy,” said Andrea Okun, vice president, sales and marketing, WillScot Americas. “By offering the advantage of extending both horizontally as well as vertically, Flex efficiently uses every square foot of space. Flex represents a truly significant innovation in the temporary space product market.”
Flex offers customers:
Stackable units eliminate unnecessary waste with a smaller footprint and up to 75 percent faster set-up times than traditional temporary solutions
Bright, professional environment offers a fresh, innovative design aesthetic both inside and out
Ground-level access and robust frame maintain security
Interchangeable panels can be removed, replaced and repositioned to create a truly customized temporary space solution
During the product’s initial soft launch phase in 2012, Flex units were essential in the rebuilding efforts after Hurricane Sandy and were also used by the National Football League and Major League Baseball for broadcaster use onsite during post-season championship events.
Visitors can tour two 20' x 8’ Flex units on site at booth #B50 throughout the duration of New York Build 2016.
