Mobile Mini, Inc., the world’s leading provider of portable storage solutions, joined Phoenix Mayor Greg Stanton and Phoenix City Councilwoman Kate Gallego today in a ribbon-cutting ceremony marking the opening of the company’s new headquarters and national sales center. Mayor Stanton and Councilwoman Gallego were joined by Mobile Mini President & CEO Erik Olsson at the ceremony and for a tour of the new offices.
Mobile Mini moved into a 55,000-square-foot office at 4646 E. Van Buren St. in Phoenix. The new headquarters consolidates Mobile Mini’s corporate and sales facilities and will be home to over 300 employees including the executive team, national sales center, customer support, finance, and accounting. In the centralized Phoenix location, Mobile Mini employees enjoy proximity to the Metro Light Rail system and Sky Harbor International Airport.
Mobile Mini is one of the Valley’s top companies with reported total revenue of $445 million in 2014 and demonstrates the economic success of Arizona. Founded in 1983 in Phoenix, the company serves customers throughout North America and the United Kingdom from 160 locations.
Mobile Mini rents portable storage and office containers and specialty containment products such as tanks, pumps, and filtration systems. The company product line is used across industries including construction, retail, energy, utilities, mining, government, and education. Customers can choose from a total rental fleet of over 200,000 units, including containers featuring its patented Tri-Cam Locking SystemTM.
“The Valley is our home. We’re thrilled to have the opportunity to grow our presence in a place that understands the importance of being business friendly and a city that welcomes home-grown companies with open arms,” said Mobile Mini President & CEO Erik Olsson. “The success we’ve experienced can be attributed to the terrific talent pool that the Valley has offered us. We expect that this great new office space will be our home for a long time and allow us to continue our growth as the world’s leader in secure storage solutions.”
“Mobile Mini’s storage solutions have helped thousands of businesses and families across Arizona, North America, and the U.K.,” Mayor Greg Stanton said. “The company has helped create jobs and expand our local economy. The cost of living and doing business in Phoenix is lower than in many other major metropolitan areas in the country, and we’re happy that Mobile Mini has cast a vote of confidence in our city. Its decision to stay in Arizona means retaining and creating hundreds of jobs in the Valley.”
“Anytime a business opens shop in this district, it’s great news,” said District 8 Councilwoman Gallego, in whose district the company will be headquartered. “But with Mobile Mini, we not only gain a locally-grown company with international reach, we also gain an outstanding member of the community that cares about its home and people in all of the Valley of the Sun. Under Erik’s leadership, Mobile Mini is taking on a more critical role in giving back to the place it calls home.”
