Sunwest Mobile Modular Company Background

Sun West Mobile Modular (SWMM) was founded by its president, Mr. Gary Wheeler, who has upwards of 30 years experience in all aspects of an enterprise involved with the transporting and installing of mobile modular and prefabricated commercial structures.  Mr. Wheeler began his career working in the underground mine construction business.  He was promoted through the ranks from laborer to foreman.

SWMM’s roots can be found in Wheeler Transport founded in 1983.  Wheeler Transport’s operations involved moving mobile buildings of all types to and from sites here they were to be installed or taken down.

As the business grew, Wheeler Transport was asked by an increasing number of clients to expand its services.  This was accomplished, beginning in 1990 to include the actual set-up and installation of the modular buildings or prefabricated structures.

Further growth resulted in Wheeler Transport to be incorporated as Sun West Mobile Modular Inc. in 1998.  SWMM provides the full-range of services, as its name implies, with a clear focus on commercial rather than residential structures.

What began as a three-person operation has expanded into a successful organization with a current staff of 15 individuals and growing – even in these challenging economic times and its “word of mouth” approach to marketing.

The Company’s management attributes its success to its insistence on quality performance in all aspects of the business, providing the appropriate tools to optimize productivity and the continual reinvestment, from its founding, into operations and staff.
