Each year in December the MiniCo Insurance Agency announces the winners of the highly coveted Facility of the Year Awards. Three of the 2018 winners, including Oakley Self Storage (Best New Facility), Congress Storage (Best New Construction), and Highlands Self Storage (Best Specialty Storage), rely on PTI’s self-storage solutions to manage, secure, and grow their businesses.

Read below to learn more about these facilities and what turned them into award-winning businesses:

Oakley Self Storage – Best New Facility Winner

Since 1986, the Facility of the Year competition is widely regarded as the premier award for the self storage industry. Oakley Self Storage, in Oakley, California, was named the “New Facility Winner” based on site selection, design, use of land, overall appearance, aesthetics, marketing prior to opening, lease-up performance, and occupancy rate. This state-of-the-art facility has become a memorable landmark in its neighborhood for its vibrant colors and striking architecture.

Oakley Self Storage has managed to stand out from  their competition by offering their customers first-class security features, such as PTI’s individual door alarms on each unit, access controlled security gates, the EasyCode mobile app, and COREGraphics management software for an extra layer of tenant protection. Congratulations, Oakley Self Storage, and thank you for choosing PTI for all of your self-storage solutions!

Highlands Self Storage – Best Specialty Storage Winner

In 2009, Jonathan and Allison Brett began construction of Highlands Self Storage in Franklin, New Jersey. In the past ten years, their simple dream of financial security and independence has grown into a unique, revolutionary standard for self-storage facilities throughout the world. After taking note of the  number of wineries and wine connoisseurs in Franklin, the Bretts made the decision to build a state-of-the art, climate-controlled wine-storage facility.

Experts agree that absolute control of the environment is critical for proper wine storage; and the Bretts spared no expense in achieving this goal for a diverse group of wine collectors, investors, and restaurateurs. Highlands Self Storage utilizes innovative refrigeration equipment, a dedicated humidity control system, as well as PTI’s LED lighting controls and access control security system to create a best-in-class experience for their customers. Way to go, Highlands Self Storage, we’re so proud to be your access control providers!

Congress Storage – Best New Construction Winner

Austin, Texas has been leading the list of the fastest growing cities in the U.S. for the past several years. Two miles from downtown Austin lies the highly desirable South Congress neighborhood, known by locals as “SoCo”. With its rising population, skyrocketing housing market, and close proximity to the University of Texas, developers quickly secured the land for a self-storage facility in 2015.

With its distinctively high elevation and small lot size, Congress Storage’s developers had to get creative to make the facility feasible for a self-storage site with high customer visibility. After nearly 3 years, the result of these efforts is the beautiful and contemporary Congress Storage. Its modern features include large windows, lush landscaping, and first-class access control amenities from PTI Security Systems. Congratulations, Congress Storage, for your beautiful new facility and all the recognition it deserves!
