Mr Box Ltd acquired by American-owned Mobile Mini UK

Feb 26, 2017
Ipswich-based storage container sales and hire company Mr Box Ltd has been bought by American-owned Mobile Mini UK.

Mobile Mini, which has been in the container business for more than 40 years, has 16 branches across the UK and has its UK headquarters in Stockton-on-Tees.

The sale will see Mr Box operate as a separate division within Mobile Mini, managed by Director Sarah Jones. She will be supported by her existing team and Mobile Mini’s national network.

Before the sale Mr Box had a fleet of approximately 2,600 containers for hire, as well as a substantial container sales and conversion business. Following the acquisition, Mobile Mini’s UK hire fleet will grow to almost 40,000 units and employ a workforce of more than 400.

Chris Morgan, Managing Director of Mobile Mini UK said, “We are delighted to welcome Mr Box to the Mobile Mini family. They have a strong container hire and sales business and have a reputation for superb customer service and quality products. They bring with them a high quality, highly utilised fleet of containers and we expect a seamless transition for their existing customers.” Tony Newton, former owner of Mr Box Ltd, added, “I am impressed with Mobile Mini’s plans to grow and develop the business and am confident that Mr Box’s customers will continue to receive the first-class customer service they have always enjoyed. I am grateful to Mr Box’s employees for their effort and commitment over the years and wish them and Mobile Mini all the best for the future.”
