Portakabin and Allspace

Allspace Limited is now Portakabin

For all those customers who remember the great service and products they got from Allspace in the past - the tradition continues here. Back in 2006 the Portakabin Group purchased Allspace Limited - Ireland’s largest supplier of modular and relocatable building systems for sale and hire.

The trading name eventually became Portakabin Allspace.

After almost 10 years of successfully supplying customers across Ireland with Allspace secure units and Portakabin buildings, in June 2015, following customer research it was decided to bring all companies in the Group under the same company umbrella of Portakabin.

Therefore, Portakabin Allspace has become simply Portakabin with a new name, website domain and email addresses. However, phone numbers and the fantastic quality of service have not been affected!

We look forward to working with you!
