Janus International Corp., a manufacturer of self-storage doors and hallway systems, has acquired building manufacturer Gliderol Self Storage Solutions in Peterlee, England. Gliderol was founded in 2005 as a joint venture between Janus and Gliderol UK Ltd., a maker of rolling and sectional doors. Janus purchased the company outright to strengthen its brand presence in the United Kingdom and on the European continent, company officials said.
“Self-storage operators throughout five continents identify with the Janus name,” said David Curtis, president of Janus. “Reaffirming our commitment to the European marketplace through this acquisition will support the enduring growth of their market by utilizing decades of experience to serve self-storage investors.”
Gliderol Self Storage Solutions manufactures portable-storage buildings, as well as temporary and steel structures. The company specializes in the production, supply and installation of self-storage facility components. The company’s website is now under the Janus International Ltd. name and can be found at www.janusintl.co.uk.
Headquartered in Temple, Ga., Janus manufactures rolling doors and building components for the commercial, industrial and self-storage markets. The company has seven global locations including a joint venture in Mexico.
