Storage Giant Ltd., which operates nine self-storage facilities in the United Kingdom, plans to double its personnel this year to accommodate company growth. The operator has seven new sites under development and plans to add more next year, according to the source.
“2020 will be perhaps the most important year in Storage Giant’s evolution, with a major expansion program unfolding for the firm across Wales, Oxfordshire, Hertfordshire and the Midlands, where we already have a solid presence. The final fit-out for our Bristol mixed-use scheme in Brislington is underway, with the official launch of that site imminent,” said Simon Williams, managing director. “Doubling our personnel will be a natural progression for Storage Giant to help us manage our new sites and to drive occupancy company-wide.”
Williams is also exploring the viability of introducing an equity-share scheme for senior staff members to attract talent and boost retention. “It is important to me that, as the firm grows, we continue to show our personnel that they are valued. I feel that adjusting our business structure to allow our senior colleagues a further stake in the company’s future, via an equity scheme, is the way forward.”
Storage Giant also has expansions underway at existing sites in Cannock and Telford, England. A 10-500-square-foot addition recently opened at its Swansea location in Wales.
“We are actively looking for further premises in a number of cities, including Swansea and Cardiff, to help us meet increasing demand. We are proud that Storage Giant continues to be a success. Businesses across the U.K. are working hard and are thriving, and [it’s] important that we maintain a positive outlook amid the changes ahead for Britain,” Williams said.
Founded in 2007 and based in Newport, Wales, Storage Giant operates four self-storage facilities in England and five in Wales.
