Pacific Northwest Equipment Inc., was formed in 1980 as a container leasing company specializing in leasing to the local and domestic market. PNW has maintained this initial emphasis and has built upon this specialty by also selling used containers, building new containers designed for the rigors of the local domestic market, lease/purchasing container equipment, developing on-site storage for local construction and retail customers, and designing and building specialty modules for the industry.

PNW continues to service this market area and now provides service in, Washington, Oregon, Anchorage, and greater Alaska through our main office in Kent, WA. The owner, Terrance R. Thomas II, was one of the original founders of the company and has been in the marine container business since 1968.

In May 2007 PNW was proud to announce completion of a new corporate headquarters with terminal attached in Kent, WA. By doing so PNW feels more equipped to fulfill the needs of our customers both old and new.

When professionals in the shipping industry have a question about regulations, intermodal transport, or container specification requirements they call the experts who have always catered to the specialized needs of their clients PNW! You too should be calling the pinnacle of the marine container industry.

PNW's company owned trucks and company employed drivers ensure that our customers receive the best service not only from our sales staff but also from our delivery personnel.
