Modular Containers and Services
Saxon Containers is one of the foremost companies in the Middle East specialising in the container business. It is a member of UP-Saxon Group which is an association of companies in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, dedicated to the provision of specialist services and products to the engineering industry.
Containers are versatile building blocks which can be joined, cut or shaped to make any type of enclosure, from simple accommodation and storage units to multi-story hotels and offices. They benefit from an existing worldwide transport infrastructure of ships, trains and trucks designed specifically for handling containers efficiently. This renders them cheap to transport and easy to re-locate. Additionally, installation work is far easier, quicker and cheaper than that required by traditional brick and mortar buildings.
The unique modular designs of containers introduced by Saxon Containers provide further advantages, namely, flexibility, cost control, fully-fabricated factory-built and finished construction, optimised space and energy use, and minimum requirements for site installation skills and materials.
