Storage Giant Ltd., which operates nine self-storage facilities in the United Kingdom, received two Business Excellence Awards from “Acquisitions International,” a monthly digital-business magazine. The company won in the “Best Commercial & Domestic Self-Storage Facilities 2019 - England & Wales” and “Small Business of the Year 2019” categories. The awards recognize impressive, growing businesses worldwide, according to a press release.
“I’m very pleased to see Storage Giant recognized by the Acquisitions International Awards. The company has always been a labor of love for me, and I am proud to be a local employer in the Midlands, Oxfordshire, Wales and across Britain,” said Storage Giant founder Simon Williams. “Businesses across the U.K. are working hard to create stable, useful, profitable firms [that] add value to the local economy and create employment within their communities, and it is pleasing to be recognized as one of these in an international forum.”
In addition to self-storage, Storage Giant provides office space. The company has new sites under development in Kingswinford and Oldbury, West Midlands, England, and a mixed-use retail scheme under construction in Bristol, England. It plans to develop 11 more storage facilities by 2020. Storage Giant is also adding 47,770 square feet of self-storage to five of its properties.
“The Storage Giant Story is one of steady, managed growth, and I remain ambitious for its continued success,” Williams said. “I established the firm at a time of economic uncertainty in the U.K., but the success of Storage Giant shows that with careful business planning, smart use of technology, an agile business approach, and a sharp customer focus, obstacles can be overcome and business can thrive.
Over the last eight years, Storage Giant has delivered an average annual year-on-year increase of 28.4 percent revenue and 31.3 percent EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization), according to Simon. The revenue forecast exceeds £5 million over the next 12 months, the release stated.
Founded in 2007, Storage Giant is based in Newport, Wales. It operates four self-storage facilities in England and five in Wales.
