P G Engineering was formed in 1967 by Gordon Philip, semi-retired he required a hobby and started trading with a partner, selling and hiring ex-shipping containers for secure storage.
P.G Engineering became a limited company in 1975 and in the following years the family bought out the partner and became shareholders, making P G Engineering an entirely family run business. Nigel Philip, a fully qualified Electrician, now worked full time in the container firm and started to expand it and on 30th January 1985 the company became known as Philspace Limited.
Now with over 40 years’ experience the company has become one of the south’s leading suppliers of temporary and portable site accommodation, with the drive to lead we are always keeping up with the latest industry trends and investing in our fleet to ensure reliability and we meet the latest environmental regulations.
The result of experience, youth and enthusiasm is the Company you see today, based on the standards set by Gordon Philip.
