Piedmont Container was born from an idea in 2016 when President/CEO Gene Hamel noticed the popularity in building of homes made out of shipping containers in regions around the world, but not in the United States. Gene started doing research and found that this relatively new niche market was on the cusp of booming. So, with this knowledge, he set out to start his own company.
Gene established Piedmont Container in early 2018, where he has completed 2 years of research and development across all aspects of building container homes. He also has worked diligently to put together a team knowledgeable and experienced in building, designing, selling and transporting container homes to our clients.
