The benefits of a corporate partnership
We help companies and brands in number of different ways. Tell us what your challenges are and let’s see if we can help you tackle them.
Aggreko is a world-leading provider of mobile modular power, temperature control and energy services.
They work at the forefront of a rapidly changing energy market and are focused on solving customers’ challenges to provide cost-effective, flexible and greener solutions across the globe.
They use their big boxes of power, heating and cooling services whenever and wherever needed, and just like ShelterBox, work ’round the clock with no location too remote.
These synergies, along with a mutual desire to make a difference, brought our three-year strategic partnership to life in 2018.
We created a unique skill-sharing programme to leverage Aggreko’s experience and expertise and help ShelterBox tackle specific challenges.
Using the opportunity of the LEAD (Leadership, Education and Development) Programme, a small cohort of seven talented individuals seen as the future leaders of Aggreko, had the opportunity to use their mentoring, financial, strategic, logistic and marketing skills to have a lasting impact and help ShelterBox reach more families hit by disaster.
The response was amazing, so much so that this module of the programme will be included in subsequent years and cohorts.

The experience has been described as “eye-opening” by most of Aggreko’s participants.
ShelterBox’s participants described it as “highly professional” and “insightful”.
On 15 September 2018, Typhoon Mangkhut, known locally as Ompong, made landfall in the northern Philippines.
It was a Category 5 typhoon with sustained wind speeds of 200 km/h that damaged almost all buildings. A ShelterBox team was deployed straightaway to help families who lost everything, and Aggreko immediately decided to support the response.
We helped 1,042 families in total with essential aid items like ShelterKits, tarpaulins, solar lights and hurricane strapping which helped to reinforce their homes as they rebuild.
Aggreko’s generous donation provided emergency shelter and solar lights for 565 of these families.
Their funds allowed ShelterBox to provide a support effort that may otherwise have been challenging to do so.
Two people from Team Aggreko ’s Philippines office were given the opportunity to witness the positive change and see first-hand the impact that Aggreko and ShelterBox, together, can make.
They had the chance to visit the families hit by Typhoon Mangkhut and see how the partnership helped them recover and rebuild their lives.

Aggreko and ShelterBox are delighted at the impact that working together has had in only a matter of months, and look forward to pushing forward in our relationship over the duration of our partnership.
