The UK’s largest independent self-storage firm, Storage Giant opened the doors of its first Nottinghamshire storage facility, offering self-storage and office space for individuals, start-ups and small businesses.
The new store in Nottingham has 82,000 sq. ft of lettable space encompassing over 1,100 self-storage units and 19 flexi-office suites, ideal for start-ups and small businesses in the area.
The new facility has directly created four local jobs and will create dozens of additional jobs through its office space and commercial storage units for local businesses.
With customer service and sales roles available, Storage Giant is currently hiring people to join the multi-million turnover firm at the Nottingham facility.
Situated at the new Teal Park development between Netherfield and Stoke Bardolph – just 10 minutes from the city centre – the new site is the company’s first in the county, the sixth in the Midlands and the eighth store in England since 2016.
Company CEO and founder, Simon Williams, said:
“We are excited to open our new facility in Nottingham, offering storage and office space to local individuals and businesses.
“This is our sixth store in the Midlands and represents our ambitious expansion plans to open more sites across the region including Stoke-on-Trent, Willenhall, Kidderminster and Witney.
“Not only does the new store opening represent a success for Storage Giant’s expansion plans, but it also highlights Nottinghamshire’s continued growth and development as an incubation hub for small businesses.
“We are particularly proud to provide new office spaces for SMEs as they are the beating heart of the British economy, and as flexible working remains popular, we hope to see many more businesses opening satellite sites and allowing team members to work near home in Nottingham.
“We hope our story at Storage Giant – having grown from one to 14 sites since 2007 – can inspire local entrepreneurs to achieve their business goals even in the face of uncertainty.”
Indeed, having started life with just one facility in Newport in 2007, Storage Giant is itself a small business success story. Now boasting 14 sites across Wales, Southwest England and the Midlands, the new site in Nottingham represents the firm’s commitment to expansion, with six new sites in the pipeline by mid 2024.
Simon Williams continued: “The Storage Giant story is one of steady, managed growth – and we look forward to supporting local businesses in the area with their own development.”
