UK: Continest UK has launched its new range of award-winning foldable container units for events, which claim to offer event organisers an 80% cost-cut on logistics and storage, as well as a similar reduction of CO2 and GHG emissions.
The new company brings together two experienced event professionals: CEO Andy Moss, owner of sport event logistics & management company Cube Management, and Continest UK managing director Brandon Weston, who brings many years’ experience in portable modular buildings and event structures. Both were present at the Event Production Show in London to launch the new UK distributorship, with Moss commenting: “The Continest collapsible containers are real game changers in the events and festival market, offering significant transport and onsite cost savings. In addition to cost, Continest introduces major environmental benefits, reducing C02 emissions by 80% over standard containers, when using 10 or more units.
“We’re delighted to have secured exclusive UK and Ireland distribution for this incredible product range.”
Weston added: “The essence of the Continest foldable solution is that the containers are uniquely developed for quick and easy set up and very efficient transport. This is a win-win situation for festivals and all manner of sporting, promotional and cultural events – not to mention the environment.”
Continest foldable containers were specially developed for relatively short-period usage, such as events where there is a need for temporary accommodation, offices, meeting rooms, first aid rooms, command posts, guard posts, storage, service areas, and cooling & heating environments. They also have wet rooms and units fitted with solar panels.
Vidor Kis-Márton, CEO and co-owner of Continest, stated: “We are excited that our foldable container range is now available to the UK event sector. We’re confident that Andy and Brandon will continue with our high professional standards and with the scope for use in the UK market we foresee a considerable reduction in the environmental impact of UK events.”
