The Flexiss Group Achieves Unprecedented Expansion and Strategic Acquisition

The Flexiss Group, an independent leader in the self-storage and flexible space sectors, proudly announces a remarkable industry expansion. This includes the simultaneous opening of three new storage facilities across its SureStore and The Self Storage Company brands, alongside the strategic acquisition of Scotts Storage in Lincoln—all within a single month, representing a significant achievement and a first in the self-storage sector.

SureStore Gloucester, a former cinema redeveloped in partnership with investment firm Seneca Partners, marks an expansion into new territory as the first SureStore site to branch out to the west of the country. This state-of-the-art facility features a wide range of storage solutions, including home storage, business storage, student storage lockers, and last-mile logistics services, all accessible through advanced smart keyless access technology, solidifying SureStore’s status as one of the UK’s leading self-storage groups.

SureStore Stoke, located on Festival Heights Retail Park just outside the city centre, was developed in collaboration with ReAssure Limited. Based in a former health club, this site sets a new benchmark for self-storage in the region. Designed to achieve net-zero carbon in operation, it offers diverse storage options such as home storage, business storage, student storage lockers, office space, and three retail units, providing a comprehensive solution for local businesses.

The Self Storage Company Aston, developed in partnership with Schroders, is another significant addition to the Flexiss Group’s portfolio. Situated in a former retail space, this facility represents a major step forward for The Self Storage Company brand, featuring a new reception area—the first of its kind under Flexiss Management—and strategically located as the first TSSC site outside Greater London.

All newly developed sites benefit from Smart Keyless Access for enhanced security, as well as PV solar panels and EV car charging points as standard, showcasing the company’s commitment to green energy solutions.

The strategic acquisition of the formerly family-run Scotts Storage further enhances The Flexiss Group’s market position, enabling the company to expand its reach and continue delivering exceptional storage solutions across the UK. Currently offering crate and container storage, the purpose-built site on the outskirts of Lincoln will maintain its budget-friendly proposition until a full SureStore rebrand is planned for early 2025.

Mike Wilson, co-founder of SureStore and Flexiss, expressed his excitement over the company’s growth: “We’re delighted to expand our self-storage portfolio with these three exceptional facilities and the acquisition of Scotts Storage Lincoln. Our partnerships with Seneca, ReAssure, and Schroders have been instrumental in bringing these projects to fruition. We are proud to offer our customers innovative, sustainable and convenient storage solutions.”

The Flexiss Group’s commitment to sustainability is evident in the operation of the new facilities and the incorporation of the pioneering ‘Flextechs’ building management software. This software offers unparalleled monitoring capabilities to optimise efficiency and sustainability. Moreover, features such as PV solar panels and EV car charging stations, standard across all sites, underscore the company’s dedication to reducing its carbon footprint and promoting an environmentally friendly future.

Andy Wood, co-founder of SureStore and Flexiss, added, “Our goal is to challenge the status quo in the self-storage sector by constantly rewriting the playbook on how we approach self-storage projects. Our constant desire to bring new innovation to the sector fuels our rapid expansion and our desire to create more sustainable operations incorporating the latest cutting-edge technologies demands a bold approach. The delivery of four new projects in the space of a month has brought a unique set of challenges, but we’re incredibly proud of our teams and third-party stakeholders who have risen to the challenge.”

With the opening of SureStore Gloucester, SureStore Stoke, and The Self Storage Company Aston, along with the acquisition of Scotts Storage, The Flexiss Group continues to reinforce its position as a leader in the UK self-storage industry, setting new standards and achieving milestones that reflect its ambitious vision.
