Washing up with portable restrooms and sinks

Feb. 21, 2021

Manufacturers of portable sanitation equipment — restrooms, sinks and even showers and laundry facilities — had a banner year in 2020. They don’t see that trend dissipating anytime soon.

“The demand has been huge for everything we have,” says Steve Ghrist, president, Lang Specialty Trailers, Latrobe, Pa., which manufactures restroom, shower and laundry trailers with optional extra sinks on the outside of the trailers as well as bunkhouses.

At the beginning of spring, Ghrist didn’t think that would be the case. “A big portion of our business is special events rental companies. In the spring, we had a lot of people canceling orders. We had a month where things were uncertain. Then all the needs for COVID-19 and the disasters came into play and it really took off,” he says.
