With Vermont reeling in the wake of severe storms and the devastation left behind, ModSpace, the nation’s leading provider of temporary and permanent modular buildings, is committed to assisting community businesses recover quickly.

“As a native New Englander, I’m deeply saddened by the widespread devastation in this beautiful state,” said Brian Shakun, ModSpace’s District General Manager for New England. “Getting businesses, schools and government facilities up and running days, not weeks or months, is critical as we approach the busy tourist season. Vermont relies on autumn visitors for its year-round livelihood and ModSpace can help accelerate its recovery with a vast fleet of temporary modular buildings that are in the area now and ready for immediate delivery.”
