About WillScot


WillScot’s focus on value led them to merge with Mobile Mini in 2020 to help provide customers with options for:

  • Mobile offices
  • Mobile storage

Catering to customers in North America, the team of experts cuts out the middleman so that you only have one call to make rather than dealing with contracts, multiple vendors and more to get the job done.

WillScot Modular started in 1944 as Williams Mobile Offices, which provided 8’ trailers/offices that could be towed behind cars. In 1945, recreational vehicles and specialty units were introduced under the Scotsman Production Company with a focus on the film industry.

In 1955, Williams Mobile Offices officially incorporated, and by 1965, the company revealed their first double wide mobile office. Their first modular building was revealed two years later. In 1990 Scotsman and Williams Mobile Offices merged into WillScot Modular.

Since the merger, the company has:

  • Opened offices in Canada
  • Expanded into Mexico and Europe
  • Went public before going private two years later when WillScot and Algeco merged
