Apple Self Storage of Canada has announced its intention to continue growth and renew investment in the company, starting with the launch of a third-party management platform and the recent hiring of David Allan as business development manager.
Apple Self Storage Management was created to make the company's industry experience available to independent self-storage operators, according to a press release. Allan's experience in providing customer solutions to the service industry will be a benefit to current clients and those who become part of the Apple success story, company officials said.
"Our clients will increase revenues, share expenses and become more competitive using the Apple Self Storage Management platform,” said Michael Naoum, general manager.
Apple has made a significant investment in social media and the Internet and is now experiencing monthly gains in reservations, rentals and other customer interactions though this new electronic portal, according to the release.
Based in Aurora, Ontario, Apple has built, acquired or converted more than 30 self-storage facilities in the past 15 years. It currently owns and operates 15 facilities and has another three under management in Ontario, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. The company was launched in 1999 when Jeff, Phil and Scott Allan bought and developed their first self-storage facility in Ontario after a successful career as partners in the technology world.
