"We are confident the Global Self Storage store in Lima will be an immediately accretive addition to our portfolio, which now consists of eight self-storage stores," said Mark C. Winmill, president and CEO. "Through our professional management practices, we can capitalize on the full potential of this store, which is the dominant self-storage facility in Lima."
Global continues to examine acquisition opportunities in target markets that have potential to expand profit while presenting the “highest barriers to entry to our competition,” Winmill said.
