Our History


Founded in 2010, we set out to disrupt a stale welfare cabin market. Coming from the construction industry, we immersed ourselves in the world of welfare units, we studied the big players and worked out how we could do things better. This ethos of continuous improvement continues to this day. As a team, we constantly seek to improve, innovate and manufacture the best welfare products we possibly can, leading to the launch of our Deep Green 2030 range, the most sustainable welfare units available in the marketplace today.

From three directors initially, to a team of around 200 people today, we listen to what our customers require, we understand, we design for your needs and then we deliver the highest quality of products. Which is why we are now the UK’s market-leading welfare unit manufacturers.

Because we are a family-owned independent business, all our profits are invested back into the company. We have invested over 25 million in new technologies and resources in building better products and a better business, and we aren’t stopping there.



2022 (December)
Our Deep Green range was shortlisted in two prestigious edie award categories – ‘Net-Zero Innovation of the Year’ and ‘Product Innovation of the Year’.

2022 (October)
The Deep Green range is Highly Commended in The Showman’s Show 2022 Green Supplier and Innovation Awards, which recognise the latest sustainable solutions reducing the environmental impact of events and worksites.

2022 (September)
The carbon savings produced by the reduced operational fuel requirements and the reduced servicing requirements of our Deep Green cabins are verified by independent industry assessor Carbon Footprint Ltd.

Our flagship 24ft Deep Green unit is joined by 20ft, 16ft and 12ft models, all with the option of twin toilets or single Toilet and dedicated Drying Room.

Launch of Deep Green 2030 – the industry’s most sustainable welfare range, designed to run for the majority on solar power alone with near zero emissions and to slash fuel and servicing costs for users. The first cabin off the production line is a 24ft towable unit with Twin Toilets, Canteen, Office and Drying facilities.

After rigorous testing, Boss Cabins makes HVO biofuel the fuel of choice in all generators used in our welfare products – up to 90% reduction in CO2 and other harmful emissions.

After identifying a potential towing safety risk across the entire industry, Boss Cabins immediately brings in as standard our HandBrake Protection Plate system to protect our customers. We inform Knott-Avonride, manufacturer of the tow-hitch assembly, of the potential dangers of their product but our claims are initially rejected. We also warn all other manufacturers and the marketplace as a whole in an attempt to protect cabin users and the general public.

After a 9 month protracted battle with the tow-hitch manufacturer and after being subjected to fierce criticism from other cabin manufacturers which damages us commercially, we are proved right. The tow-hitch manufacturer is forced to change its product and pays compensation for the engineering work and testing that Boss Cabins has conducted.
