ROXBOX Launches New Product Line Paying Tribute to Lost Team Member

ROXBOX Containers has launched the BillyBox paying tribute to “Wild Bill” Thomson, a member of the ROXBOX team who recently passed away in a tragic motorcycle accident.

On April 2nd, 2021 ROXBOX lost a member of the team to a tragic motorcycle accident – “Wild Bill” Thompson. Billy was a self-made man who embodied the ROXBOX mentality of hard work and quality craftsmanship. Billy, a lead welder and fabricator, was a friend to all in the ROXBOX shop and showed up every day ready to work. In his honor, the ROXBOX team has developed the “BillyBox”. The BillyBox is Billy – a badass container bar that has a built-in walk-in cooler for kegs and all of the equipment for a full-service bar.

ROXBOX’s most popular container modification to date is the BeerCan, a 20 foot permanent or mobile container taproom with a walk-in cooler for kegs and tap system. ROXBOX has built BeerCans for many clients across the country, including Smuttynose Brewing Co. in New Hampshire and Two Parts in Denver. The BillyBox takes the BeerCan to the next level.

Built out of a 20-foot or 40-foot one-trip container, the BillyBox is a turnkey full-service shipping container bar perfect for any business or event. Able to be run on-grid or by a generator, the BillyBox has the functionality, equipment, and aesthetic to be the perfect addition to any brewery, beer garden, sports arena, music festival, shipping container park, etc.

Modifications and specs of the Billybox include:

  • Walk-in fridge that can keep upwards of 26 kegs at the perfect drinking temperature 24/7
  • Customizable beer tap system
  • Ice maker & ice well
  • Merchandise fridge
  • Bottle coolers
  • Metro rack

The ROXBOX team is looking forward to beginning production of BillyBoxes and paying tribute to a husband, father, friend, son, and brother who was taken too soon.
