The UK’s leading modular building provider, Portakabin, retains Superbrand status

Portakabin, the UK’s leading modular building provider, has been named as one of the UK’s leading business brands for the second consecutive year in the Business Superbrands 2009 list. Portakabin has moved 25 places higher than its 2008 position and is now ranked at 233rdin the top 500.

The announcement follows a robust selection process undertaken by The Centre for Brand Analysis who canvas the opinions of a voluntary Expert Council and over 1500 individual business professionals.

Stephen Cheliotis, Chairman of the expert council & CEO, The Centre for Brand Analysis, said: “Congratulations to Portakabin. A Business Superbrand that has established the finest reputation in its field. It offers customers significant emotional and tangible advantage over its competitors which customers want and recognise; it must also represent quality, reliability and distinction.”

David Shaw, Marketing Director for Portakabin, added: “In troubling economic times, the strength of a company brand can mean the difference between success and failure.

Providing exceptional customer service and premium quality buildings ‘on time and on budget’ has enabled Portakabin to build a brand synonymous with excellence.

“Retaining this accolade for a second year will only further enhance our outstanding brand name and market leading reputation in the construction industry.”

From January 2004 to June 2008, Portakabin delivered 99.6 per cent of buildings on time and on budget compared with a construction sector average of only 63 per cent on time and 49 per cent on budget.

Its enviable reputation has been driven by the Portakabin Customer Charter, the first of its kind to be launched in the modular building market.
