New Selby storage firm launches with funding from Barclays

Posted by on 07 Apr 2014

Selby Self Storage today announced the launch of a new facility in Selby with funding from Barclays.

Managing director Ross Stewart who has worked in the storage and distribution industry for over 15 years spotted the opportunity to launch Selby Self Store at Selby Business Park.

The business provides automated self-store in a safe and secure environment for general public and businesses with 24/7 access. 

Ross Stewart, owner of Selby Self Store said: “It occurred to me that we didn’t have any storage facilities locally and the business park in Selby seemed a great location to launch.

"Barclays provided an innovative and flexible funding package for me to expand and the unit provides high end modern self-store facilities that people locally are finding invaluable.“

The new unit has created two new jobs – and phase 2 expansion plans are already underway.

Kelvin Smith, senior business banking manager at Barclays arranged the funding and said: “Ross is a longstanding and valuable customer and so when he decided to launch the new business we were delighted to provide the funding.

"It’s great to see a local business taking advantage of low interest rates and investing for the future, creating jobs and contributing to the local economy.“
