Selby Self Storage has opened a new facility in Selby, England. Located at Selby Business Park, the facility features indoor units and automated services with 24-hour access, as well as outside container storage and warehouse floor space for storing pallets, theater sets and other items. The company secured financing from Barclays PLC.
“It occurred to me that we didn’t have any storage facilities locally, and the business park in Selby seemed a great location to launch,” said Ross Stewart, owner of Selby Self Storage. “Barclays provided an innovative and flexible funding package for me to expand, and the unit provides high-end modern self-store facilities that people locally are finding invaluable.”
An expansion project is already underway on the property, according to the source.
“Ross is a longstanding and valuable customer, and so when he decided to launch the new business, we were delighted to provide the funding,” said Kelvin Smith, senior business banking manager at Barclays. “It’s great to see a local business taking advantage of low interest rates and investing for the future, creating jobs and contributing to the local economy.”
Selby Self Storage began in 2003, storing customer items in wooden crates, according to the company’s website. The new facility offers modern security amenities, including closed-circuit television, an alarm system and keypad access. It serves residential and business customers.
