Global Modular Construction Heavyweights BLOX and XSite Modular Announce Powerful Strategic Alliance


Birmingham, AL (January 13th, 2020)

BLOX and XSite Modular today announced that the companies have entered into a strategic alliance that will continue to drive the modular construction industry forward.

BLOX pioneered the Design Manufacture Construct (DMC) building delivery system which replaces traditional design and construction methods with a 21st century approach focused on quality, cost and speed. Their alliance with XSite Modular, a leading global design-builder of critical infrastructure buildings (CIB) and a recognized authority in prefabrication consulting, enhances BLOX’s ability to serve its existing customers while expanding its footprint into modular datacenter and cable-landing station markets.

This alliance will roll out over the next 90 days, allowing for transition of XSite Modular staff to BLOX’s team. Once complete, XSite Modular’s customers will have the benefit of BLOX’s one million square feet of manufacturing space and their in-house, world-class design and engineering capabilities.

“For a decade, I’ve watched Amy and the XSite team move an industry forward with a combination of encyclopedic expertise, an unrelenting tenacity, and a culture driven by a passion to change the status quo. No group has done more to change an industry than XSite,” said BLOX Founder and CEO Chris Giattina. “They have delivered time and time again on the promise of offsite modular; our alliance is a big deal for BLOX – and it’s a force multiplier for DMC. I’m excited about what we can do together.”

Amy Marks, CEO of XSite Modular noted, “Chris and his team have done so much to revolutionize the construction industry with their DMC approach.  Aligning our resources with BLOX is a huge win because it means our clients can now build larger and more technologically advanced data centers and cable landing stations worldwide.”
