Our Journey

We are a family run skip and container manufacturing business based in Bournemouth on the South Coast of England. The Skip Factory started in December 2009, during the difficult recession which leads me to tell you our story...

2009
DATE OF INCORPORATION
IN THE BEGINNING

IN THE DARK TIMES OF THE RECESSION, THE SKIP FACTORY OPENED ITS DOORS AND ALTHOUGH TIMES WERE TOUGH, THIS DID NOT STOP OUR DETERMINATION.​

ORIGINALLY, WE STARTED MAKING SKIPS IN 1997 IN THE MIDLANDS SO FABRICATING SKIPS AND CONTAINERS IS SOMETHING WE HAVE ALWAYS KNOWN AND BEEN GOOD AT, SO WE STUCK TO WHAT WE KNEW.

A New Area & A NEW & IMPROVED US

HAVING RELOCATED TO BOURNEMOUTH, WE STARTED AGAIN FROM SCRATCH.​

THANK YOU TO OUR VALUED NEW CUSTOMERS WHO HELPED US ON OUR WAY TO TRIUMPH AGAIN! 

OUR STUGGLE

Recession, No Contacts, NEW COMPANY.

THE SKIP FACTORY FAMILY BUSINESS HAS BEEN QUITE LUCKY, CONSIDERING EVERYTHING WE WERE UP AGAINST; THE RECESSION, A NEW AREA WITH NO CONTACTS, AND THE GENERAL BATTLE OF A NEW COMPANY. 

LIKE ANY OTHER NEW BUSINESS WE HAVE HAD A FEW WORRYING DRY PATCHES, WITH NO WORK, AND OTHER TIMES WITH TOO MUCH WORK AND NOT ENOUGH IMMEDIATE EMPLOYEES TO DO THE JOB! HA!

We Pull Together As A Team & WORK WELL AS A FAMILY

REGARDLESS OF THE IMMENSE STRESS AND PROBLEMS THAT GET THROWN OUR WAY! 

OUR SUCCESS

We Have Grown IN EVERY DOMAIN

WE STARTED WITH 7 AND NOW WE'RE A TEAM OF 30+

PRODUCING 20 SKIPS A WEEK SINCE OUR OPENING DATE, WE HAVE NOW INCREASED PRODUCTION TO A WHOPPING 180 A WEEK, THANKS TO OUR DEDICATED TEAM.

OUR RANGE OF PRODUCTS HAS ALSO EXPANDED FROM SELLING STANDARD SKIPS AND ROLL ON/OFF CONTAINERS TO NOW A VAST RANGE INCLUDING COMPACTOR BINS, TIPPING BINS, EASY EJECT BINS AND MUCH, MUCH MORE.

We Must Be Doing SOMETHING RIGHT!

WE HAD NO MORE THAN 20 CUSTOMERS TO START WITH, AND NOW WE HAVE A CLIENT BASE OF OVER 900!
