Experienced operators back in the game and enthusiastic as ever!


Re-entering the container rental business after the expiry of the Restraint of Trade that resulted from the sale of their shipping container business in 2007, are J E (Ted) Coutts and J R Browne, two “old timers” in the container world with Tyrex.

They started the Tyrex Group together 31 years ago in 1978. Mr Coutts had come from a lifetime association in the tyre and automotive industries, while Mr Browne’s background is in road transport, tyres, farming, maritime and property development.

Competitive supply edge

The two are enthusiastic about returning to the container rental business, believing that experience, hands-on management and low overheads will give them a competitive supply edge in the challenging times facing the construction industry today.

They welcome enquiries from builders and contractors wanting good quality 20ft and 40ft shipping containers for site work. They also offer Portabuilt site offices for sale.
So get in touch — as their advertisement says, they “will not be beaten on price!”
