Sector: Agriculture & Horticulture

Cabins, Containers and Toilets for Agricultural and Horticulture

Agriculture and Horticulture are large and diverse sectors in the UK. Our headquarters in East Anglia means that we have very close links to the agricultural community and so are in an ideal position to understand the unique challenges facing today’s farming businesses.

We are regular suppliers to both Anglia Farmers and Fram Farmers who have accounts with us. When you use these accounts it makes ordering extremely quick and simple, please contact your account manager at the buying group for further details and to place orders.

20ft Shipping Container (New)- Green RAL 6007 - Exterior

Storage on FARMS

The remote location of arable, livestock and horticultural businesses makes them particularly vulnerable to theft of materials and equipment. Quad bikes, mini-diggers, gators and small wheeled equipment are very desirable and easily stolen. Using a shipping container to store them securely not only keeps them out of sight, but also significantly slows down the determined criminal.

Shipping containers are available in various lengths, configurations and grades and there are options to meet every size of budget. View our range of container storage solutions.

Materials and liquids that could potentially be damaging to the environment such as fuels, oils and agro-chemicals can be kept securely in our wide range of bunded storage containers. With farm assurance schemes, the risk of losing government payments or even fines for pollution incidents, secure storage protects not only the environment but your business reputation too.

Office and Welfare Accommodation for Growing Businesses

With ever increasing land prices, more and more farmers are expanding their businesses through rental and lease (contract farming) arrangements.

They are also using portable units from our jackleg and steel cabin range as offices, meeting spaces, canteen and toilet facilities, to provide flexible accommodation that can be sold or relocated easily and cost-effectively to another farm at the end of the agreement.

Steel Cabins for Seasonal Accommodation

Seasonal Accommodation

Farms, especially in the cut flower and fresh produce sectors, have very seasonal needs for accommodation and welfare facilities. Our range of steel cabins for hire provides cost-effective and flexible temporary sleeping and living accommodation, cooking and washing facilities.

Portable Shower Unit

Health and Hygiene

Farms supplying fresh food sectors are required to meet stringent food and hygiene regulations. For these short term needs we have a range of toilet, shower and welfare accommodation for hire or sale.

Vertical Farming Shipping Container

Growing containers & vertical farming

Recent advances in technology, especially in LED lighting, hydroponics and aquaponics has seen a large increase in the need for enclosures from which to grow products.

Converted shipping containers have proved to be an ideal, readily available and robust base for converting into container farms which usually provide significant savings in water and energy use.

Of course being built inside an ISO container the internal fit out can be done in a factory environment here in the UK and the unit can then transported cheaply around the world using the multi modal shipping routes to where it’s needed.
