WillScot Mobile Mini ("WSM") is the number one modular leasing and portable storage solutions provider in North America. The Group was formed through the merger of Williams Scotsman and Mobile Mini in July 2020. Together the two brands operate from approximately 275 locations across the United States, Canada, Mexico and the United Kingdom with a combined fleet of over 350,000 modular units and storage containers. WSM serves a diverse range of end markets including construction, manufacturing, professional services, education and retail.


In November 2017 we completed a transaction spinning out Williams Scotsman from the wider Algeco Scotsman Group into a publicly listed vehicle, with TDR continuing to manage a significant stake in the business. The transaction provided Williams Scotsman with resources to drive the consolidation of the US modular space market as well as continue its strong organic growth trajectory. In July 2020, Williams Scotsman completed a merger with Mobile Mini in a share exchange transaction forming WillScot Mobile Mini, which is trading on the NASDAQ as “WSC”.

What we did

Following the spin out of Williams Scotsman, we focused the business on driving further growth in value-added products and services as well as advancing the consolidation of the US market through the completion of three accretive acquisitions and a transformational merger with Mobile Mini.

How we exited

The spin-out of Williams Scotsman into a listed vehicle in 2017 positioned us well for an exit via the public markets. The position was sold down via three block trades throughout 2021.
