STOKADO is one of the pioneers in the Polish self storage industry, a perfect example of the new breed of entrepreneurs, keen to enter into the self storage industry. Stokado established ‘Stage 1’ of their first facility project, a warehouse with 600 square meters of floor space and a further 360 square meters of external drive-up units, in October 2013. From the beginning their intention was always envisaged as a stage by stage project.

Scope Of Work

We supplied a full partitioning system to include kick plate and corners guards, we had a selection of next generation roller doors and corrugated swing doors.
We also supplied mesh to form roofs on the units and made bespoke triple height lockers to suit the overall unit height.

Project Description

Date: April 2014
Location: Warsaw
Door colour: Orange

This was a new venture for STOKADO and a completely new concept in this area of Poland, so it was very important to understand the proposed demographics of the area and to fulfil a good mix.

The client found us and our competitors through an internet search and soon realized that Janus has just the right solution for them. Janus International edged ahead by the advice we gave, our brand image and the prompt service we offered.

The focus for STOKADO from the very beginning was to maximize the space without compromising on the customer experience. STOKADO also wanted a bespoke service and wanted us to deliver triple height lockers rather than the normal double height lockers.

With Janus advise, careful planning and immaculate execution, the client experienced good fill rates and have now gone on to complete a further phase in a reasonable short span of time.

Project Description

Date: February 2016
Location: Burnham-On-Sea/Highbridge
Door colour: Marine Blue

Leakers migrated into Self Storage from the “removals industry” and found this to be an ideal transition, a vehicle to put their additional space to good use, having experimented with it on a small scale basis to start and explore if the industry would work they gradually over the next few years converted more and more of their remaining storage buildings exclusively into self storage, until they finally decided to cease all works within the removals industry, selling their vehicles and concentrating solely on the self-storage business.
