Simon Williams, MD of Storage Giant

Self-storage and business customers across West Bromwich, Dudley and West Midlands will be served by the newest addition to the fast-growing Storage Giant Portfolio of facilities, with a site in Oldbury now up and running.

The state-of-the-art facility can be found in the former Oldbury magistrates court, on Oldbury Ringway, and Storage Giant has kept some of the original features intact when developing the site. But modern, efficient and secure storage are the watchwords for the facility,

The Oldbury self-storage business centre provides low cost self-storage for homes and businesses in West Bromwich, Halesowen and the Midlands, with a purpose-built self-storage facility featuring more than 26k sqft of unit space, from 10 sqft lockers to 330 sqft units. This stacks up to almost 300 rooms to store household, domestic or business goods, as well as commercial storage for businesses needing space for stock, tools and paperwork. There is also more than 7k sqft of drive up units, which will be particularly attractive to tradesmen and women and to start-up businesses. There are also six high-spec 170+ sqft serviced office suites, with broadband infrastructure, flexible business services and free parking.

Simon Williams, Storage Giant MD said: “This latest launch for Storage Giant, just five minutes from the motorway and 20 minutes from the University of Birmingham,  is part of an ongoing story of managed and ambitious growth for the company, which see 18 sites up and running or in the Storage Giant pipeline, with new site being sought along the M4 corridor area and in the Midlands. This expansion is, of course, good news for Storage Giant – a firm which started life as a single facility concern in Newport, Wales, during a recession, but it is  also good news for the local economies we serve throughout our regions, and for the many ambitious starts-ups and entrepreneurs  who grow their small businesses under our roof.”

Storage Giant announced plans recently to double its footprint in the UK over the next two years with new sites in the pipeline for Bridgend and across the Midlands.  During the spring/summer of 2020 Storage Giant saw occupancy and revenue grow by more than six percent and fourteen percent respectively, with nine out of its ten sites increasing occupancy, in part due to a shift in people’s working habits and associated storage needs, and in part because of new start-up businesses aligned to the shift to trading online.

Storage Giant MD Simon Williams said: “These continue to be challenging times for businesses across all sectors and we have, as a firm and as a tight-knot team, re-calibrated what we do so we can continue to serve customers and the thousands of small businesses we incubate under our roof, and our business clients. 2021/22 is set to become one of the most exciting in the Storage Giant story, with our expansion plans pressing ahead.”

The company began life in 2007, during a deep recession, as a single-unit concern.
