Welwyn Garden City Store Opens

Welwyn Hatfield MP Rt Hon Grant Shapps opens a new self-storage facility for ‘the self storage company’ in Welwyn Garden City.

The opening of ‘the self storage company’ in Welwyn Garden City will help in regenerating the area, showing that with the right business we can continue to grow out of the recession, according to Rt Hon Grant Shapps who performed the opening ceremony.

By re-developing the site ‘the self storage company’ has developed a site that has around 50,000 sq ft of self-storage units that can be rented to domestic and business customers. This latest facility is the second to open less than 12 months from the company’s launch and 6 months from establishing its head office in Hatfield.

Speaking at the official ribbon cutting, Mr Shapps said “In the current financial times it is very encouraging to see expansion of businesses like ‘the self storage company’. It shows that with the right business approach we can continue to grow our way out of recession. Of course I am delighted that the company has chosen Welwyn Garden City, but what is really impressive is their commitment to the community. The company’s support for such a worthwhile cause as ‘The Soldiers Charity’ sets a positive example to other businesses. I’ve no doubt that this will lead to greater recognition for the charity in our area”.

At the opening ‘the self storage company’ showed its continuing support of the charity ABF-The Soldiers Charity, whose work is becoming increasingly important as more of our armed forces come back from theatres of war with serious injuries and its tireless work in supporting former soldiers and their families from the great wars.

Brigadier John Palmer spoke to the guests “It is a great privilege to be invited to take part in this event and to have the chance to thank ‘the self storage company’ for their support. ABF The Soldiers’ Charity makes grants to help individuals and although each one may not be large it does have a huge impact on the lives of the individuals involved. Calls for our support are increasing, and that is not going to change, we need to increase our funds for grant making and the help of ‘the self storage company’ will make a real difference to those that need our help”.

The Self Storage Company CEO Emil Sohrab said “I am delighted to be opening the second of our facilities and to report that we have exchanged contracts on another two and expecting a further three by Christmas. Our growth allows our continued support for ABF-The Soldiers Charity.
