UK Storage Co. Ltd., which operates 12 self-storage facilities in England, is converting a derelict factory in Yeovil, South West England, to self-storage. The former Standard & Pochin Ltd. building at 94 Lyde Road was once used to manufacture fans but has been empty for a decade, according to the source.
The structure has been gutted and a house on the property has been demolished to make way for parking and better access to the site, said John Lamb, commercial manager for UK Storage. The roof has been replaced and new entrances to the building have been added.
"We can now offer a bright, modern warehouse with individual rooms for people to store in,” Lamb said. "It's very rewarding to see the changes and, hopefully, people in the local area will be glad to see the changes, too."
Founded in 2005, UK Storage has properties in Bristol, Cornwall, Gloucestershire, Plymouth, Somerset and Wiltshire Counties. In addition to traditional storage, all of the facilities offer document storage. Some properties also provide office space for rent.
