Mark Zimmer purchased A-1 Rocket in 1989 as a portable restroom company in Amarillo, Texas. From hard work and customer service the business began to grow and add more equipment and employees. Soon after, the company began to offer temporary construction fencing to accompany the portable restrooms.
After graduating from Texas A&M University, Mark’s son, Ryan, joined the A-1 Rocket team. With the help of his father, Ryan was able to quickly expand A-1 Rocket into other services and areas.
In August of 2010, A-1 Rocket acquired American Portable Storage in Amarillo, Texas. Then in January of 2011, A-1 Rocket also acquired a similar company, Scott Box out of Lubbock, Texas. The expansion of inventory, newer trucks, trailers and a centralized Lubbock location has allowed Scott Box to improve the efficiency at which customers are served.
With the acquisition of Scott Box, Mark and Ryan could now expand their service area to include all of the South Plains, Midland, Odessa, Abilene, and most parts of south eastern New Mexico.
Much like American Portable Storage, Scott Box is able to operate under the same values of customer service and hard work that have been proven by A-1 Rocket.
