Founded by Layland Barker in 1987 TITAN has become perhaps the largest privately owned company supplying shipping and storage containers for a vast multitude of applications. TITAN’s initial goal was to pass on the advantages of high volume with providing end-users with top quality containers and services always with competitive pricing. Today, more than 30 years later, TITAN maintain the same targets, operate six brands and is able to offer worldwide services with a network that is possibly the best in the market place.
The emphasis of the business has always been on storage applications. Aside from gaining logistic advantage, TITAN is generally not involved in the international container-shipping sector.
In 2010, TITAN changed course with 180 degrees. We had been a trading company buying and selling with a rental fleet. We transitioned to a rental business that also trades new and used containers. This turnaround has dramatically changed TITAN over the past 8 years.
Renting shipping containers for STORAGE is TITAN’s core business! In particular, our ArcticStore™ range of refrigerated storage containers has elevated TITAN to market leader in many markets. More recently, the expansion of our self-storage sites recorded almost 100% growth in 2018. It also supplements our customer site dry storage rental activities.
We also participate in supplying many standard ISO shipping containers for logistics and project shipments.
Our expertise in refrigeration opened the door to refrigerated DNV offshore containers and for several year’s we have been market leader in Macaé, Brazil. From our office and depot, we service many of the catering companies and offer other DNV container types to the market.
In a few markets, TITAN 4PEOPLE is developing container based construction and modular accommodation.
To service our business interests we operate more than 14 own container depots and operate own transport services with 14 container vehicles based in 4 countries.
In 2017, TITAN entered the Danish Gold 1000 and was previously a multiple Gazelle winner over several years. Furthermore, the founder/CEO Layland Barker was nominated for several business awards including “Årets Ejerleder” and three consecutive years for “Entrepreneur of the Year”.
