The foundation was laid in 1979, when sister company LKW WALTER created a new business area: the trade with used shipping containers. In 1981, this business area became a separate company – and CONTAINEX was born. In 1983, the new company brought portable cabins to Austria for the first time.
What started as a one-man band was destined to expand rapidly. In 1992, a second branch was opened in Kufstein, with new markets opening up throughout Europe and overseas. CONTAINEX remains true to the motto "space at once" to this day.
