Q&A from Bryan McCrea and Evan Willoughby

Bryan McCrea and Evan Willoughby can’t fill orders for their steel shipping containers fast enough.

The duo turns these durable containers into temporary housing, which come complete with integrated heat, light and plumbing. With the resources sector in Western Canada in a perpetual boom, thousands of bedrooms and offices are required each year, says McCrea. And these rental containers sure beat the standard flimsy, fire-prone, wood frame structures.

In an effort to keep up with demand, 3twenty Solutions has expanded its manufacturing space 10 times over and tripled its payroll since launching.
