Swansea Mayor Cuts the Ribbon on Storage Giant Expansion to Meet Student Demand

Rebecca Arkell | January 22, 2020

The Mayor of Swansea helped Storage Giant unveil its Phase Three expansion, adding 10,500 sq ft to the Swansea site in order to meet increasing demand for storage in Swansea, largely from the city’s growing student population.  

Having started life as a single unit concern in Newport at the onset of the recession, Storage Giant is proud to now be a multi-million turnover business, with nine operational facilities and a further seven sites in its active pipeline, with more to follow later in 2020. 

Owner and MD, Simon Williams said: “I’m pleased to see this third expansion of our busy Swansea site in the Enterprise Zone, and I am grateful to the Lord Mayor of Swansea, Cllr Peter Black, for helping us cut the ribbon this state-of-the-art expansion.  We are keen to invest further in Swansea – it is a city that is very much on the up, thanks to its ongoing City Deal regeneration. So, we are also actively looking for additional freehold premises in Swansea, in order to help us meet ever increasing demand for our services.

“UWTSD and Swansea University are both undergoing important expansion programmes, prompting Swansea’s student population of around 24,000 to grow rapidly. This sees more demand for student storage facilities in Swansea like ours. Since we also offer low cost office space for small businesses and start-ups on our sites, we also find that establishing relationships with students while they are at university can often help to encourage them to set up businesses here, which helps to keep the local economy vibrant.”

New customers at Swansea can benefit from the phase 3 opening offer of 8 weeks half price storage – full details available at our Swansea self storage store. Storage Giant is about to open Phase Two Telford, Phase Three Swansea, Phase Two Cannock, and a new Bristol mixed use scheme in Brislington.
