To celebrate 110 years of family business and 25 years as S Jones Containers, the Aldridge headquartered company has announced the launch of four new dedicated divisions to kickstart its ambitious growth plans.

The new market offering comprises four specialist divisions: Container Sales, Container Hire, Conversions, and Modular Buildings, and has been designed to streamline the business while enabling it to further enhance its outstanding level of delivery to customers.

Each of the new divisions further establish S Jones Containers’ reputation as leaders in the creation and provision of contained space solutions. By adopting a market-focused approach for each division, the business aims to maximise the value and trust associated with the S Jones Containers brand, while continuing to serve its customers’ specialist needs.

Established in 1914 by Samuel ‘Sammy’ Jones, the business originally operated as a haulage contractor by horse and cart before acquiring its first motor lorry in 1920. By 1970, the business joined the container revolution – offering depot services both to the shipping industry and fledgling UK Midlands-based container manufacturers at its Aldridge depot, which to this day continues to be one of the longest established and largest in the West Midlands.

With the establishment of S Jones Containers as a dedicated container-focused business in 1999, Andrew Jones joined his father, Michael Jones, as Managing Director – making Andrew the 4th generation to continue the Jones family business.

S Jones Containers currently employs 50 people, which includes an inhouse team of specialist engineers capable of altering shipping containers to ISO 9001 and JOSCAR certification standards. Its clients include a plethora of globally and nationally recognised businesses, including Siemens and Coventry University.

In the last 15 years, S Jones Containers has grown its trading activities more than 30 times, positioning itself as one of the leading suppliers in the industry. The business is one of the only facilities in the UK that can work on bespoke converted units not only for itself but also for other businesses around the world. S Jones Containers is also capable of running and delivering modular building projects for various applications, including work and education. The business is now looking to build on this momentum by doubling its growth and profits over the next three years.

Speaking on the business’ latest development, Andrew Jones, Managing Director of S Jones Containers, said: “We have come a long way since our original founding in 1914. Over the last 110 years, we have continued to bring a personal touch to each interaction we have, and above all, ensuring that our customers’ expectations have been fully met, if not exceeded. Today, our ethos remains the same, which is to provide an outstanding experience for our clients and by extension, their customers. Our new divisions will enable us to sharpen our focus on delivering excellence across every specialism within our portfolio.”

“In the coming years, we have big plans on how we can take S Jones Containers brand to the next level and lead the way in contained space solutions.”
