Dynamic husband and wife duo, Libby Prell and Tony Smith entered the transportable building business back in the 70s after purchasing an accommodation block in Ayers Rock.
The team have since scaled their business and now have over 900 transportable buildings in their fleet.
Looking to the future, Libby and Tony believe modular transportable buildings can play a huge role in helping solve Australia’s housing crisis.
“If they change to transportable buildings, they could physically fix the problem very quickly.”

When looking at how far the business has come, the couple attribute much of their success to their people.
“You need good staff… that can share the dream. They’re part of our family – we’re a family business.
