In a highly competitive category within the self-storage industry, Flexiss Group and Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM) are delighted to announce the outstanding success of SureStore Bury, a part of their innovative SureStore portfolio. SureStore Bury has achieved a remarkable double victory, earning the title of “Multi-Site Operator Store of the Year 2023” at the prestigious FEDESSA European Self Storage Awards in October. This accomplishment follows its earlier win as “UK Multi-Site Operator Store of the Year” at the UK SSA Awards in May 2023.
The Self Storage Association United Kingdom (SSA UK) Awards, hosted at the Hilton Metropole Birmingham, and the FEDESSA European Self Storage Awards in Rotterdam, are both highly respected events that acknowledge exceptional contributions and accomplishments in the self-storage industry. These awards hold special significance due to the intense competition and rigorous standards prevailing within the sector.
SureStore Bury, which opened its doors in September 2019, marks the fourth facility in the SureStore network and operates under the banner of Flexiss Group, a leading independent storage management platform. Situated just off the M66 at the vibrant Pilsworth retail park, the facility has been a beacon of innovation in self-storage. Offering Home Storage units, Business Storage units, Drive-up Storage for enhanced accessibility, and Trade Counters for local businesses, SureStore Bury has redefined the self-storage experience.
In addition to its state-of-the-art storage solutions, the facility boasts purpose-built offices and has swiftly emerged as an industry leader. Its strategic design and amenities, including a 1000sqft ground floor office equipped with comprehensive facilities, have set a new benchmark in the sector.
Paul Whitaker, Commercial Director at Flexiss Group, expressed his pride in this achievement: “An absolutely amasing achievement considering this is our first time in with the ‘big boys’ after only opening the first SureStore in 2018. This double win at both the UK and European levels is a testament to our commitment to excellence and innovation in the self-storage industry.”
Operations Director Jon Gardner of SureStore added, “SureStore Bury is a shining example of what makes our industry great. Well-trained, friendly multi-talented staff, flexible solutions for all customer types, a deep connection to the local community, and a stack of tech which means we are always ready for anything.”

They are committed to constructing all future new builds to be Net Zero Carbon in operation.
This dual award win for SureStore Bury not only highlights the facility’s outstanding service and operational excellence but also underscores the strategic vision and industry leadership of Flexiss Group and LGIM. Their dedication to delivering top-tier storage solutions, exceptional customer service, and innovative business practices has clearly paid off, setting a new standard for quality and excellence in the self-storage industry.
