Harrow based business shortlisted for two national awards

A Harrow-based business has been shortlisted for two UK Self Storage Association awards due to be held this month.

Attic Self Storage based in Honeypot Lane, Edgware, have been shortlisted for the ‘UK Independent Store of the Year’ award, which recognises the achievements of Self Storage facilities across the UK.

The Self-Storage Association (SSA UK) is the trade association for self-storage businesses and industry supplier members in the UK. The association promotes best business practice to ensure that the industry is sustainable and adheres to regulatory guidelines.

In addition, the Harrow store manager, Lex Ajanaku, has been selected as a finalist in the award’s ‘Manager of the Year’ category, which is granted to managers who are instrumental to the success of their stores.

Lex Ajanaku, who has been working at the Harrow store since February 2020, said: “I feel so proud to have been shortlisted, given that there are only six finalists nationwide.”

Frederic de Ryckman de Betz, Founder and CEO of Attic Self Storage, said: “This news comes to us with great pleasure as we recently celebrated Harrow’s one-year anniversary. We are delighted to see Lex’s hard work recognised as he is a trusted pair of hands and has done a fantastic job in steering the performance of Harrow. He is thoroughly deserving of being a finalist.

“The ambition at Harrow was always to set high standards in self-storage and it’s great to see that, as a whole team, we have managed to deliver this and that it has been acknowledged across the wider industry.”

Attic Self Storage has four trading facilities across London, including King’s Cross, Bow Marylebone and Harrow with a fifth store due to open soon in Beckton.

Award winners will be announced at the Self Storage Awards in Birmingham next week (29 June).
