A STORAGE firm which has been open for just one year has ambitious plans for nationwide expansion after the success of its first branch.
Titan Self Storage, which started life in Littlehampton, already has a second branch in Bracknall, and opened in Braintree last week.
The Littlehampton business, based in the Riverside Industrial Estate, opened in July last year, and proved popular with residents and businesses.
Executive manager Karen Wozniak, said the success was down to providing the ‘ultimate customer service’.
She said: “We wanted to break the mould completely.
“In Littlehampton, there were other storage companies, but in our view, we wanted to offer more of a customer-focussed service, rather than just a room and a key.”
The initial investment cost a total of £3 million, and company directors expect to break even by November.
Customers are currently renting storage space which spans 12,000 square-feet.
Director Mark Van Adrichem said: “The Titan brand symbolises confidence, and we are keen to grow nationally, which we are already doing.
“We expect to break-even by month 18, which works out as November.
“We are opening another branch in Leamington Spa next spring, and there are more deals on the table, but it’s too early to announce others at this stage.”
The company offers a range of storage options, with support along the way for its customers.
Mrs Wozniak said: “It is just about being more than a storage company, and providing the ultimate customer service.
“For example, we may have an elderly couple who are stressed about moving house, and we will offer them a transport service and support.
“We even offer office relocation services and shredding for businesses, among other things.”
In celebration of its one-year of trading, the company held a charity fun day for Chestnut Tree House Hospice.
It will also be taking part in the Arundel Festival bath-tub race.
