‘Factory in a Can’ Opens up Housing Opportunities



New Zealand steel framework and design company FRAMECAD, is exclusively using Royal Wolf containers to create their innovative mobile ‘Factory in a Can’ concept, which helps build permanent and temporary housing in developing countries and remote locations.

Specifically chosen by FRAMECAD because of their versatile and robust qualities, Royal Wolf containers are being customised to house transportable and self-contained steel frame production facilities that can be safely, easily and conveniently set-up anywhere around the world in a matter of hours.

From remote locations with little or no infrastructure to challenging environmental conditions, the size, strength and durability offered by the containers made them the clear and most effective solution.

Mike Smith, General Manager at FRAMECAD New Zealand, says, “Royal Wolf is the only container provider for the FRAMECAD ‘Factory in a Can’. Their 40 foot container was the perfect option for us because it can withstand extreme outdoor conditions, is highly cost effective and  enables us to relocate literally anywhere to service clients and more importantly, help provide housing to those people most in need.”

Royal Wolf has worked closely with FRAMECAD to modify containers to support the unique ‘Factory in a Can’ concept by creating doors at either end of the container to allow easy access and a safer passage for the machines operators.

“FRAMECAD has a longstanding relationship with Royal Wolf and the ‘Factory in a Can’ is quite an amazing example of how our containers can be used for such an interesting and worthwhile project,” comments Glen Millen, Royal Wolf, Area Sales Manager North Island.

As a company Royal Wolf continues to lead the way in the hire, purchase and modification of containers to solve a wide range of business challenges. Royal Wolf containers have been used to create unique solutions from accommodation units, through to retail outlets, defence force training facilities, mobile exhibitions and innovative construction projects.
