With an extensive in-house staff and 90,000 sq ft container modification facility, we’re able to deliver consistently high quality and work on multiple projects simultaneously for a fast turnaround.

We prorate your rent by the day after the first 28-day billing cycle, so you don’t have to pay for a full month when you only have your mobile containers and offices for a few days.

While other companies may be able to do small container modifications, most don’t have an in-house fabrication staff or 90,000 sq ft fabrication facility like we do. As a result, they outsource the work on your custom container, so you don’t know who’s actually building it.

Rest assured knowing your modified shipping container will be built to the highest quality standards. Our certified weld and quality control inspectors check every step of the fabrication process to ensure everything is structurally sound and built to your specifications.

Massive semiconductor plant in north Phoenix helps prompt $100M chemical factory to break ground nearby

A Taiwan chemical company has broken ground on a north Phoenix factory, its first U.S. manufacturing facility, to supply the Valley's growing chipmaking industry including the giant Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. complex under development nearby.Sunlit Chemical said it expects the first phase of the plant to be operational in 2023.

A Taiwan chemical company has broken ground on a north Phoenix factory, its first U.S. manufacturing facility, to supply the Valley's growing chipmaking industry including the giant Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. complex under development nearby.

Sunlit Chemical said it expects the first phase of the plant to be operational in 2023. The company said it will commit $100 million total in two phases to develop the 900,000-square-foot facility on 17 acres at Seventh Avenue and Alameda Road, a few miles east of the Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing complex.

The first phase will produce hydrofluoric acid and other high-purity industrial chemicals. Phase two of the factory, involving raw-material purification, is expected to be operational in 2025. Hydrofluoric acid is used to etch and clean silicon wafers.

Sunlit's chemical-manufacturing process is highly automated and isn't expected to result in a significant number of employees.

Still, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey said the investment "bolsters Arizona’s semiconductor supply chain (and) our reputation as a global semiconductor powerhouse" while expressing confidence in water availability.

"Many of these companies are leading edge in terms of technology, water innovation, water use and how they cycle the water through their system," the governor said. "These are companies that could have gone anywhere in the country and have chosen Arizona with our current water situation."

Expansion for Taiwan company

Sunlit Chemical, which turns 50 this year, also produces sodium fluoride for the dental industry and chemicals for other uses, including in the solar and steel-manufacturing industries.

"This new milestone marks Sunlit’s commitment to our partners that we are ready to expand our reach beyond Asia and set sights on the global front,” said Bryan Lin, Sunlit's president. “This new facility enables Sunlit to be the leading main supplier of high purity hydrofluoric acid to semiconductor fabs in the U.S.," he said, with a shorter supply chain.

Supplier bottlenecks stemming from COVID-19 manufacturing disruptions and port closures have affected many industries, including semiconductors. Another Taiwan semiconductor supplier, LCY Chemicals, also has expressed interest in building a U.S. factory, possibly in Arizona.

Lin vowed that the plant will adher to the "highest standards of environmental and safety management, water efficiency and energy management.” Still, chemical manufacturing is a hazardous business.

Support for semiconductor industry

Sandra Watson, president and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority, said the Sunlit groundbreaking represents another addition to Arizona's rapidly expanding semiconductor base, and Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego predicted that this will be the "first in a series of foreign companies investing here as a result of TSMC."

In addition to Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing's announcement of a $12 billion factory in 2020, Intel last year broke ground on two new chipmaking factories in Chandler that could represent the largest private-company investment ever in the state, at $20 billion.

And earlier this month, EMD Electronics announced a $28 million investment for a new factory in Chandler to expand its gas and chemical delivery businesses.

Taiwan Semiconductor plans to start chipmaking in Phoenix in 2024.

PHOENIX — It'll be a very nice end to the week before our next storm system moves in this weekend.

Look for highs in the upper 60s across the Phoenix metro area today, putting us right near normal for this time of year. A few clouds drift in this afternoon and evening, but rain chances hold off until Saturday.

Winds will stay light here in the Valley, but they will pick up again across northwestern Arizona as the next storm system starts to move in from the north.

Wind Advisories are in effect from 11 a.m. today until 5 p.m. Saturday along the Colorado River Valley. Gusts could hit 45 mph tonight into early Saturday morning.

Rain and snow showers will begin across far northern Arizona late this evening and spread down to the Mogollon Rim overnight into Saturday.

Accumulations will be light with most spots picking up less than an inch of snow.

Flagstaff, and other spots at 7,000 feet in elevation or higher, could get one to three inches of snow.

By Saturday morning, we could see a few rain showers here in the Valley, too. Then another round of light, spotty showers looks to develop by Saturday evening.

The chances are pretty low, but a few spots may see as much as a tenth of an inch of rain.

Winds will get breezy in the Valley on Saturday, too. Wind gusts will peak near 25 mph.

The storm will start to clear out on Sunday and we are looking dry again heading into next week.

Valley highs will top out in the upper 60s through the weekend and early next week.

Arizona set a new record in November, topping $60 million for the first time in sales.

PHOENIX — Saturday marks one year since recreational marijuana went on sale in Arizona and business has been booming at dispensaries across the state ever since.

Arizona set a new record in November, topping $60 million in sales for the first time. The state department of revenue reported $1.23 billion in both medical and adult-use sales through the first 11 months of 2021, AZ Mirror reports.

Hana Dispensaries in Phoenix said they had a line out the door around this time a year ago.

"Yes it's been great we've been really busy," said Hana Dispensaries president Matt Pinchera said. "Lot of new people through the door, a lot of people coming back."

Pinchera said first-time customers should expect helpful, hands-on service.

"When they walk through the door here at Hana they can expect really knowledgeable budtenders," he explained. "Think of that as like a bartender who's going to help you decide what you might want, figure out what product is best for you, and help you find a really great deal."

Dispensaries across Arizona started selling marijuana for recreational use in January 2021. One year later - a look at how sales have skyrocketed. Live from Hana Dispensaries in Phoenix all morning @12News #TodayinAZ pic.twitter.com/CrbGMYeNRq

— Jess Winters (@JessWintersTV) January 21, 2022

Cannabis is America’s fifth most valuable crop and the second most valuable crop in Arizona only behind hay.

Pinchera said flower is the number one seller in adult-use cannabis.

"Overall flower in general is our biggest seller and then with recreational customers coming in we see gummies picking up, people want something that's convenient."

Pinchera expects sales to increase this year. Hana Dispensary is hiring, if you want to apply click here.

Sunlit Chemical, a leading semiconductor chemical supplier based in Taiwan, started construction on its first U.S. manufacturing facility in Phoenix, Arizona.

Representing a $100 million total investment in two phases, the 900,000-square-foot facility located on 17 acres in north Phoenix will produce hydrofluoric acid and other high purity grade industrial chemicals in the first phase, which will be operational in early 2023. The remaining $50 million investment for phase 2 involving raw material purification will be operational in 2025. The facility will adopt the vertical integration manufacturing process, streamlining operations.

“Sunlit is excited to expand into Arizona and this new milestone marks Sunlit’s commitment to our partners that we are ready to expand our reach beyond Asia and set sights on the global front,” said Bryan Lin, President of Sunlit Group. “This new facility enables Sunlit to be the leading main supplier of high purity hydrofluoric acid to semiconductor fabs in the U.S. We are also equally committed to allocating considerable resources and to bring along the know-how in adhering to the highest standards of environmental and safety management, water efficiency and energy management.”

Founded in 1972, Sunlit Chemical was the first manufacturer of hydrofluoric acid and fluoride in Taiwan. The company contributes to 75 percent of the world’s market share in producing sodium fluoride in the oral care industry and is one of the only two producers globally to obtain US FDA approval. Sunlit now manufactures hydrofluoric acid, ammonium fluoride, and other fluorine-related chemicals. Sunlit has produced various grades of hydrofluoric acid and function chemicals for customers spanning from semiconductor, TFT-LCD, solar cell, to steel manufacturing.

“Today’s groundbreaking represents another significant addition to Arizona’s rapidly expanding semiconductor ecosystem,” said Sandra Watson, President and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority (ACA). “Sunlit brings a global reputation for safety, quality, and sustainability, and we are thankful they have chosen Arizona to stand up their first manufacturing facility in the U.S.”

With Sunlit’s in-house Research and Development facility and fleet of transportation vehicles, the company can offer streamlined supply chain and logistical solutions to its customers. The company has continued to invest in two core concepts for self-reliant R&D of semiconductor-grade hydrofluoric acid technology, and is one of few manufacturers in the world that have 100 percent self-reliant technology to produce ultra-high purity hydrofluoric acid. As of 2020, Sunlit’s total production capacity is one of the top producers in the world and will reach 110 thousand ton globally in 2024.

“As an advanced manufacturer providing high-wage jobs to the region, Sunlit is a welcome addition to the rapidly growing semiconductor industry in Greater Phoenix,” said Chris Camacho, President and CEO, Greater Phoenix Economic Council. “In choosing Phoenix as its first U.S. facility, the company is joining a number of Taiwanese businesses that recognize the advantages our region provides.”

“Over the past 18 months, Phoenix has been spotlighted on the global economic stage as a center for advanced manufacturing,” said Christine Mackay, director, Phoenix Community and Economic Development. “We are so honored that Sunlit selected North Phoenix for its expansion, and they are a welcome addition to the growing manufacturing ecosystem here. This is a perfect location for them to find a qualified, experienced workforce and the choice of lifestyle their employees can experience here.”
