Storstac’s president and founder, Vincent Ruggiero, , has been serving customers in the shipping container modification industry for over 45 years (since the early 1970’s) and has always been an industry-leading visionary. He was the first person to recognize the negative impact of sending discarded international shipping containers to the landfill sites and grasped the potential benefit adaptively reusing those used shipping containers for a number of alternative applications.

Mr. Ruggiero’s creative ideas led to innovative new uses for used shipping containers, which helped divert thousands of containers from the landfill with new life. In the early 1980’s, he pioneered the very first portable mini-storage containers out of shipping containers. In 1984, he developed the first portable wireless telecommunication shelters for Cantel (now Rogers). That success was repeated in 1994 with Clearnet Communications (now Telus) and again in 1995 with Microcell Telecommunications (now Fido). Mr Ruggiero’s visionary use of modified shipping containers resulted in over 6,000 of these portable telecommunications shelters being deployed across North America in settings ranging from urban rooftops to the most remote regions of Northern Canada including the peak of Whistler Mountain.

In 1984, Ontario Hydro experienced a PCB spill while transporting old transformers. The spill prompted a ban on the future transportation of any PCB-laden transformers. This became a major problem for Ontario Hydro. Inspired by the challenge, Mr. Ruggiero took an ISO shipping container and modified its roof with a removable cap, then designed and installed and an internal containment tray to catch any spillage. Through his efforts, the first Hazardous Material Storage System was born. Environmental officials approved the system and Ontario Hydro was able to move and store its older equipment as it was replaced. Thousands of these containers were distributed across Canada to assist in similar transportation problems.

Mr. Ruggiero’s expertise was also utilized to engineer and manufacture a series of steel shelters (made from modified shipping containers) for the massive Trans-Siberian Pipe Line Project in Russia. Among his other accomplishments: the design and manufacture of shelters for NASA to store equipment for the space shuttle’s robot arm; the construction of enclosures used as field hospitals for the United Nations emergency field work; as well as, supplying equipment for the Canadian Military during the Gulf War.
