Get to Know Your Container Team

history of Modernblox

The concept of ModernBlox started in 2012 with Ben Loh and other Oklahoma State University (OSU) students. Three years after the design had been created, most of his team members had already graduated and moved on. Ben still wanted to continue with the project because of his passion for building things, modern architecture, and knowing that it can help a lot of Oklahomans.
He got new team members including Lee Easton, and Swapneel Deshpande and started building a prototype they called the DemoBlox, which serves as an office/demo unit to generate interest and sales of shipping containers for living space. Late August 2016, the team recognized a need for someone with sales and finance experience so they grew with the addition of Chad Magruder

Facilities

Centrally located in the US we are strategically positioned to keep our building costs low whether you're from our home state, Oklahoma, or someone on the west and east coast looking to upgrade.

With over 200,000 square foot of indoor factory space and over 5 acres of outdoor work space, there is no project too big for us. Our team of builders has been through both the oil and drilling industry along with the cell phone tower manufacturing business. They are expert welders and tinkerers to bring 50+ years of experience into your very own ModernBlox.
