Working round the clock to accommodate client needs is business as usual for Mississauga, Ont.-based Provincial Partitions, which was able to supply four ready-to-ship Proflex containers to a leading engineering designer, manufacturer and solution provider for the water and wastewater treatment industry.

Each Proflex container was modified to include standard and roll-up doors for easy access, HVAC, windows and mechanical tie-in for all utilities. Checker plate steel flooring and metal interior walls were used throughout. Transport to Africa was easily facilitated because these modified shipping containers are inherently designed primarily for transport either by truck, rail or ocean.
The company believes an idea whose time has come is the use of shipping containers as modular units. The newly introduced line of Proflex units provides an economical and efficient variety of combined office/storage space solutions. With more than 30 years in the modular industry, it is suited to modifying these containers. Potential uses for these buildings include: field offices, storage buildings, hazardous material storage, barracks and housing for relief efforts.
Provincial Partitions has been providing modular space solutions for more than 30 years. Building on experience with interior plant and office space, it developed interior and exterior buildings for use as storage enclosures, kiosks, guardhouses, interior and exterior preassembled offices and other special purpose buildings.
