StorageMart, which operates more than 190 self-storage properties across Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States, has inducted two employees from its Colchester, England, facility to its “Wall of Fame,” which recognizes staff who exemplify the company's core values of “easy, clean, service.” James Dale and Rhys Peck were each awarded a service pin, and their signatures will be hung on the “Wall of Fame” board at the company’s headquarters in Columbia, Mo., according to a press release.
"Both Rhys and James have a strong sense of pride and ownership over store cleanliness and performance, and manage to have a lot of fun along the way,” said Debbie Robinson, regional manager for StorageMart in the U.K.
StorageMart expanded its footprint in the U.K. last year with the acquisition of Big Box Storage Centres for £100 million. The portfolio includes 15 locations in Southern England comprising 674,756 square feet in 9,655 units.
Peck has worked for the Colchester location since it opened. Dale joined the company in January. Together, the team has played a key role in transforming the facility under the rebranding and embraced its pledge to provide excellent service, the release stated.
"StorageMart asked a lot of our U.K. team when we purchased Big Box Storage Centres and raised the bar for customer service and cleanliness. By and large, our team members have embraced our commitment to service,” said Cris Burnam, president of StorageMart. “Rhys and James stood out as having gone the extra mile, turning the Colchester storage facility into a top-notch property. It's my pleasure to recognize and thank them for the hard work they've done."
Founded in 1999 and based in Columbia, Mo., StorageMart is privately owned and operated by the Burnam family, which has been in the storage industry for three generations. Its portfolio consists of more than 12 million square feet of storage. It serves more than 75,000 self-storage customers, and operates in Chinese, English, Punjabi, Quebecois French and Spanish.
