Our Story

Our Story

Since opening our first self-storage facility in 1972, we've grown to become the largest owner and operator of self-storage facilities in the world. With thousands of locations across the U.S. and Europe, and more than 170 million net rentable square feet of real estate, we're also one of the largest landlords.

But size isn't everything. With our customer focus and a significant presence in major markets, we've maintained a leadership position in the self-storage industry for almost half a century.

We're a member of the S&P 500 and FT Global 500. Our common and preferred stocks trade on the New York Stock Exchange.
