Modified Shipping Containers

Custom Container Modifications


If you can think it, we can build it. Modular Engineering can transform a standard ISO container into a water treatment unit, electronic/telecom equipment housing, shower/sanitation room, and even commercial storefronts. The possibilities are nearly endless and our team can help you from design to implementation to get the product you desire.  Whether you want a unit ready for equipment integration or a turnkey solution, we want to be your partner that delivers.
