As we move into 2019, we’re reflecting on 2018 with gratitude. This past year brought tremendous change, growth and opportunity to our company and we are very thankful to all of our customers, team members, and partners for growing with us into the New Year. In celebration, we’ve collected a few of our favorite highlights from the past 365 days.
Ringing the NASDAQ Opening Ceremony Bell
In 2018, WillScot (formerly Williams Scotsman), made an exciting return to NASDAQ by ringing the opening ceremony bell, signaling the daily start of trading at the second largest stock exchange in the world. This momentous event featuring our company’s senior leaders was then broadcast throughout Times Square in New York City and streamed online by excited friends, family members, and WillScot employees. Read more about the NASDAQ event in our blog post.
Growing our Team and Capabilities
This year marked a time of exceptional growth for our team as well as our company’s services and capabilities. Throughout the year we underwent three acquisitions, beginning with the acquisition of Acton Mobile at the end of 2017, leading to the acquisition of Tyson Onsite, and then the anticipated acquisition of ModSpace. Our national footprint expanded to over 120 locations and our fleet grew to nearly 160,000 modular space and portable storage units.
Beginning a New Chapter as WillScot
With the final 2018 acquisition of ModSpace, our company rebranded and began an exciting new journey as WillScot. We became one team, under one name, with one mission: making it easy for you to get the temporary workspace you need, configured exactly to your specifications, delivered and set up so you’re ready to work from day one.
We're ready to start 2019 off strong, and we look forward to the new opportunities next year has in store for our customers, team members and partners.
