UK Storage Co. Ltd., which operates seven self-storage facilities in England, is seeking growth opportunities in South West England, one of the country’s nine official regions. The company hired real estate firm Bruton Knowles to find suitable sites where it can possibly open additional locations. It has already acquired a site in Redruth, according to Will Nell, a Bruton Knowles property agent.
A growing demand from residential and commercial customers has led to UK Storage’s growth, Nell told the source. “We will be looking for other suitable sites from Birmingham down to the tip of Cornwall,” he said.
UK Storage opened its first self-storage facility in Bridgwater in 2005. It now has properties in Bristol, Chard, Gloucester, Plymouth, Redruth and Taunton. In addition to traditional storage, all of the facilities also offer document storage.
