Big Box containers partners with FNB Wines2Whales MTB events

Big Box Containers

Cape Town, South Africa – Big Box Containers, a national container leasing, sales and conversion company, has teamed up with one of the Western Cape’s most exciting three day stage mountain bike races, the FNB Wines2Whales (W2W) Mountain Bike (MTB) Events.

“For Big Box the decision to be associated with the FNB W2W MTB Events was an easy one,” says Willie Ward, Director Big Box Containers.  “From a need perspective FNB W2W needed flexible, mobile and secure spaces and Big Box could supply this in the form of our converted office, storage, event and refrigerated containers.  The partnership is a win-win for both companies as research has shown that it is usually entrepreneurs, risk takers, innovators and leaders in our society that enter an event of this nature.  This is the kind of person that is not fazed by a challenge; and that makes up around 90% of our clients.  We are really excited and look forward to building on this new partnership”.

Starting in the Winelands of Somerset West, riders crossed through (and over) 13 wineries, 26 private farms, six mountains, historic roads and mountain passes, nature conservation areas (including the Kogelberg Biosphere) before finishing within sight of the famous whales of Hermanus.
