Lok’nStore hat-trick for construction contractor

Main contractor MCS Group has secured construction contracts to deliver three new self-storage facilities at sites across the country for one of the leading names in the sector.

The construction contractor has been appointed by Lok’nStore, the fast growing self-storage company, on its developments at Winwick Road, Warrington, Pantheon Park, Wolverhampton, and Gunnells Wood Road, Stevenage.

Lok’nStore, which was established in 1995, is expanding across the country and has launched new facilities at locations including Ipswich, Hemel Hempstead, Leicester, Gloucester, Wellingborough and Gillingham.

Warwick-based MCS Group, which has worked alongside Lok’nStore for several years to deliver high quality, purpose-built storage facilities for personal or business customers, has recently started on site at all three projects.

Alan Shadbolt, group commercial director at MCS Group, said: “We’ve got a very successful, longstanding relationship with Lok’nStore. It is a very ambitious company and we are delighted to be instructed to deliver its new developments at Warrington, Wolverhampton and Stevenage.

“Our teams are already on site and the groundworks teams are making great progress.”

Lok’nStore chief executive Andrew Jacobs said: “Our objective remains to grow by both acquiring more sites to build new landmark stores for Lok’nStore’s own balance sheet and to increase the number of stores we manage under the Lok’nStore brand for third parties. We are delighted to be working with MCS Group to create three new stores, bringing our facilities to communities across the country.”

In 1995 Lok’nStore was one of the first self-storage companies in the UK. Now it has 33 stores in convenient locations across the UK. The eye-catching buildings, with their distinctive orange Lok’nStore branded livery and prominent Lok’nStore signage, create highly visible landmarks.
