“Shurgard continues to deliver solid growth, as demonstrated by our first half results,” said CEO Marc Oursin. “We have achieved these strong results in Q1 and Q2 despite more difficult and uncertain economic conditions, highlighting the strength of our significant geographic diversity and the resilience of our product.”
