certified and checked

Stack Modular has developed and adapted a robust on-site regimen to ensure that our modular units are of the highest quality level in the industry. Our systems focus on identifying shortcomings of construction procedures prior to commencement of any project, as well as on-site monitoring of processes. This quality control competency allows us to review each step of production to ensure all North American standards are met. It is with these competencies that we are able to meet CSA requirements, CWB welding certification, Intertek, and any other standards needed to provide the highest quality unit to our clients.

Worldwide Delivery

Using our global network of freight forwarders and logistics partners, no location is out of reach.  We ensure that your modular units are delivered on-schedule and within your budget, from our port to your final location.  Services include inland and maritime shipping, permitting, crane rentals, and warehousing.

As our modules are manufactured in a climate-controlled facility, we ensure that each unit is wrapped in a waterproof membrane until installation has taken place at the delivery location.  All modules have full insurance coverage from production to delivery and installation at your site.

Jim Dunn - President James Dunn, President and founder of Stack Modular, was born and raised outside of Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. At a young age he eagerly ventured outside the borders of Alberta and found himself living in Saskatchewan, Pennsylvania, California, and Africa. His global travels, subsequent university degrees in Civil Engineering & Architecture, and professional career as an engineer all contributed to his eventual arrival into China. As a professional engineer Mr. Dunn oversaw over 1 billion USD of new construction ranging from commercial office towers, high-end Los Angeles condominiums and University buildings. Recognizing an opportunity to deliver modular buildings globally, Mr. Dunn took his experience and passion to China. It was in Shanghai, China where Mr. Dunn created one of the first Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprises (WFOE) owned solely by a Canadian. After having created Stack Modular, Mr. Dunn went on to hire architects, engineers, and project managers from Canada, USA, and China to oversee the procurement, quality, and delivery of modular buildings to the rest of the world. Mr. Dunn now splits his time between Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Calgary with his primary focus dedicated to the further expansion and development of Stack.
