UK Self-Storage Operator Storage Giant Wins Multiple Business Awards During a Year of Growth

Update 7/25/22 – Storage Giant received two Global Business Awards from “Corp Today” Magazine, which focuses on emerging and fastest growing companies. The honors included “Most Outstanding Commercial & Domestic Self-Storage Facilities 2022 – England & Wales” and “Small Business of the Year 2022 – South Wales.”

“This accolade from ‘Corp Today’ magazine comes at a challenging time for businesses across the U.K., and we are proud to have retained the stability and robust performance of Storage Giant throughout the pandemic while growing our footprint by opening new facilities in Bristol, Kingswinford and Oldbury,” Williams said.

The company has also continued to support small businesses and start-ups. “This has always been a key focus for us, and it sees us play a key role in supporting local economies and local employment throughout our regions,” Williams said. “As we speak, most of our facilities’ office space is full, and we have enjoyed a spike in take-up in Cardiff and across our facilities in the Midlands. We continue to be ambitious for our brand; and we are, as we speak, looking for further premises to serve Swansea city center and the people of Neath Port Talbot, as well as in Berkshire and Hampshire.”

4/30/21 – Storage Giant Ltd., which operates 10 self-storage facilities in the United Kingdom, received four awards from two organizations this year. The accolades came as the company focused on doubling its footprint with two new locations in West Midlands, England, and one each in Bridgend, Wales, and Nottingham, England, according to the source.

The honors included “Most Outstanding Commercial & Domestic Self-Storage Facilities 2021 – England & Wales” and “Small Business of the Year 2021 – South Wales,” in the Global Business Awards by “Corporate Vision” Magazine. Storage Giant also received “Most Outstanding Commercial & Domestic Self-Storage Facilities 2021 – England & Wales” and “Small Business of the Year 2021 – South Wales” in the Business Excellence Awards from “Acquisitions International,” a monthly, digital business magazine.

Last year, Storage Giant saw occupancy and revenue grow by more than 6% and 14%, respectively. The company attributes the surge to a shift in customers’ working habits and storage needs as well as more start-up businesses trading online.

“I am very pleased to see Storage Giant continue to be recognized for the economic contribution the company makes in Wales and the wider U.K.,” said company founder Simon Williams. “These continue to be challenging times for businesses across all sectors. We have, as a firm and a tight-knit team, recalibrated what we do so we can continue to serve customers and the thousands of small businesses we incubate under our roof and our business clients. Despite these challenges, we have been able to grow occupancy rates during the pandemic. And 2021/22 is set to become one of the most exciting in the Storage Giant story with our expansion plans pressing ahead.”

Storage Giant is seeking additional development opportunities in Berkshire and Hampshire, England, as well as Port Talbot and Swansea, Wales. Founded in 2007 and based in Newport, Wales, the company operates five facilities in England and five in Wales.
