An industry leader for 50+ years
Williams Scotsman is a 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 mobile office trailers, classrooms, modular complexes and workforce accommodations that can meet the unique needs of our customer's throughout North America. 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. Our history in Canada is somewhat recent, opening our first Canadian branch in Toronto is 1998, however we have become a trusted provider of mobile modular units to those located in the harshest, most remote locations, to those in the heart of major cities and everywhere in between. With our fleet of approximately 100,000 units, we can deliver ready to work 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 more than 25,000 and involves 450 diverse industries. All of our customers are served by dedicated sales and service teams operating branches that are an integral part of their local communities in nearly 100 locations.
In 2007, Williams Scotsman was acquired by a syndicate led by TDR Capital LLP, a United Kingdom-based investment fund manager. TDR Capital merged Williams Scotsman with Algeco, a leading provider of modular space solutions in continental Europe, and Elliott, a leading provider of modular solutions in the United Kingdom, and created our parent company Algeco Scotsman.
