The Ebonkie Portables team has experienced significant milestones as the business has grown, from a single person in 2004 to a team of over 40 people and 10 delivery lorries.
We love being part of an exciting and successful business, this really helps us to have a real understanding of your business needs around accommodation and storage, and we use this experience to find the right solutions to save you both time and money.
To record our progress for the future we have recorded a brief history here as a company timeline since 2004. It’s by no means complete so we welcome any suggestions from current and former employees and clients too! Please send any omissions or suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org – thank you.
