Introducing our Grow With the Show winners.. Mantle! 16 May

Since returning to the UK from Australia in July 2015, where the business idea originated from, local couple Aaron Walker and Sophie Bulgin created the start-up business, Mantle, specialising in shipping container conversions and modifications.

Shipping container conversions (as seen on Grand Designs and George Clarke's Amazing Spaces) have been very successful in other areas of the country, with both commercial and domestic installations nationwide - yet it is still to be fully explored in Lincolnshire. With its lustrous green landscape and increasing popularity, Lincolnshire provides the space and perfect surroundings for wise investment in innovative usable space.

Mobile and modular, shipping containers not only lend themselves to domestic applications but businesses both large and small, ideal for hospitality, advertising, office space and even accommodation. Considered modern, resourceful and distinctive, Mantle is working towards shopping containers being widely considered as an alternative to traditional methods of construction.

While based in Lincolnshire, the very nature of a shipping container allows Mantle to work with clients nationwide.

Lucky winners of the 2016 'Grow With the Show' competition, Mantle has had little time to celebrate, with the installation of its first showroom at Pennell's Garden Centre, Lincoln, now complete - go ahead and take a look!

You can find Mantle at the 2016 Lincolnshire Show on stand 3-18. To buy your advanced tickets online, please visit www.lincolnshireshow.co.uk/tickets
