Sea Box, Inc. is a large manufacturer of specialized shipping and storage containers. “While a significant portion of our business is derived from military and government contracts, we continue to grow our commercial footprint through innovative partnerships and applications,” says CEO Jim Brennan Jr. “Currently, scores of our containers and shelters are deployed in military and commercial settings throughout the world.” One patented Sea Box invention is the Collapsible Relocatable Shelter, which can be linked together to create larger rooms or even multiple-story shelters. At the same time, each full-size container can be flat-packed to reduce shipping volume and cost.
WORDS OF WISDOM: “We think outside the box, inside the box, and we can even change the box if needed.”
Sea Box also engineered and manufactured a deployable air traffic control tower for the Federal Aviation Administration. The tower is made up of 16 custom-modified containers that connect together to fit into a 30-by-28-foot space. It stands nearly 55 feet high and holds all the equipment necessary to function as a temporary air traffic control tower while an airport’s main tower is undergoing renovations or repair. “Since it’s comprised of shipping containers, it has the inherent advantage of being rapidly and efficiently deployed,” says Brennan.
