Janus International, a global manufacturer and supplier of building solutions and technology for the self-storage industry, introduced a new service called Facilitate to help facility operators maintain their properties. Led by industry veteran David Alexander and a team of project managers, the program is also intended to offset repair costs, according to a press release.
Facilitate technicians will fix leaky faucets, broken windows, fencing and gates as well as address plumbing, mechanical, electrical and lighting issues. It’ll also help operators comply with the Americans With Disabilities Act.
Alexander has more than 30 years of experience in the overhead-door industry. He comes to Janus with a wealth of knowledge in manufacturer-to-end user relationships. Alexander has spent most of his career focused on large national retailers and has developed strong business relationships within the self-storage industry, the release stated.
“We’re very excited to add Facilitate to our service platform and extend our customers the best-in-class facilities-maintenance solution on the market today,” said CEO Ramey Jackson. “Facilitate represents Janus’s continued commitment to being a complete solutions provider for the self-storage industry, and will furnish facility owners and managers with the business benefits that come from trusting the maintenance of their physical assets to leading experts in the self-storage industry.”
Headquartered in Temple, Ga., and founded in 2002, Janus sells roll-up and swing doors, hallway systems, and re-locatable storage units. Its technology division helps self-storage operators automate facility operation, improve security and create a more convenient customer experience, the release stated. It operates 10 U.S. locations as well as manufacturing facilities in Europe and Mexico. The company recently went public following a merger with its parent company, Clearlake Capital Group LP, and Juniper Industrial Holdings Inc., a publicly listed special-purpose acquisition company.
