Major Milestones… Record-Number of Container Floor Refurbishments at UKCM

UK Container Maintenance (part of the IEG EMEA Group), the UK’s leading container repair and refurbishment specialist, has noted a considerable surge in demand for its metal container floor replacement service.

Over the past 12 months, the company has refurbished 4,000 otherwise redundant containers and fitted them with a new base, securing significant savings for its customers in excess of £250,000. In addition to the vast cost-saving potential released when unlocking the capital tied up in damaged units by restoring them to full working order, major environmental gains have also been achieved.

Throughout the refurbishment process, the durability of the floor is enhanced with lead-free anti-corrosive paint. Corner enforcers can also be fitted within the container to strengthen the newly installed floor, ensuring the longevity of the asset.

Ben Connett, Director at UKCM commented: “It is always a pleasure to reflect on key milestones that our skilled team members have reached, and to celebrate the impact that they have made. The container refurbishment process opens up the opportunity to deliver various enhancements in areas such as safety and compliance, security and asset longevity, as well as fulfilling an ever-increasing commitment to reuse and recycling, therefore contributing to the circular economy.

“While a damaged lid is a more common repair, containers with damaged floors are often abandoned and therefore it’s encouraging to see such a significant number of containers coming into our factory for a second life.”
