Recycle, Re-Use, & ReInvent the BOX with Modular Security Systems Inc. 

Modular Security Systems, Inc. (MSSI) located in Worthington, Kentucky is doing its part to recycle, re-use, and re-invent the box. We re-use or recycle "one-trip" shipping containers that have completed their trip across the ocean bringing imports into the United States. After the goods from these containers are offloaded, the containers themselves are often stored in shipyards around the U.S. and may or may not ever be used again. Given the U.S. trade deficit, it is estimated that about 7 million shipping containers enter U.S. ports every year, and only about half of those containers are reused to ship exports out of the country. MSSI takes full advantage of the surplus of these one-trip containers by modifying them into our patented Modular Access Control (MAC), Vehicle Access Control (VAC) Portals, and ground-level guard offices.

Our portable perimeter security products are then utilized on industrial and commercial construction sites to secure the perimeter and control employee/visitor access to these secure work sites. Built with turnstiles, vehicle barrier gates, climate-controlled guardhouses, and access control technology these re-purposed containers allow only authorized workers to enter the secure site. 

The recycling of these shipping containers is environmentally friendly and is a great example of how an otherwise wasted resource can be re-used. The recycled or reinvented boxes have proven to be far more durable and stronger than other stick-built structures that are typically used in conventional construction for construction site security.

Turn-key and easily put in use, the portable perimeter security solutions from Modular Security Systems Inc. have been used by major industrial and commercial construction companies like Fluor, Bechtel, Jacobs, Turner Construction, AECOM, Kiewit, Whiting-Turner, Skanska, and CB&I.
