Janus International Group LLC, a manufacturer of self-storage roll-up doors and building components, has appointed James Carter, Pete Frayser, Josh Rolland and Craig Watkins to business-development positions in its R3 (Restore, Rebuild, Replace) Division, according to a press release. Carter will focus on the Central Region, Rolland on the Southeast and Watkins on the Southwest. Frayser will oversee the Northeast in addition to leading the company’s international sales. All four have extensive experience in business development and sales management, the release stated.
The R3 group focuses on revitalizing older self-storage facilities, targeting mid-sized and independent operators to upgrade the properties’ and brand image. "We are excited to have these gentlemen join the R3 business-development team as we continue to expand our strategic vision to offer turnkey solutions to our industry," said Troy Bix, president of the R3 Division. “The genesis of R3 is to add value to the site. It’s taking 30 to 40 years of self-storage building and bringing them up to market relevance, and adding value to them.”
“The experience and industry knowledge this team will bring to R3 make them a key addition to the Janus family,” added Roc Hughes, vice president of R3.
Janus was recently acquired by private investment firm Clearlake Capital Group LP, which has interests in the energy and industrial, food and consumer services, and software and technology sectors. The move is a part of a broad strategy to infuse Janus with resources to pursue product development and company growth, including acquisitions, according to company officials.
Headquartered in Temple, Ga., and founded in 2002, Janus is a global manufacturer and supplier of roll-up and swing doors, hallway systems, and re-locatable storage units for the self-storage industry. It operates 10 U.S. locations as well as manufacturing facilities in Europe and Mexico.
