Self Storage for Everyone

Case Studies

Axxa Ltd: Electrical Project Management, Specification and Supply Company

Founded back in 2010, Axxa Ltd offer total management solutions for a full spectrum of electrical engineering projects.  Supplying automation parts internationally from their Stoke on Trent base, their business has grown steadily, and now boasts 8 members of staff and over £1 million turnover.

They have been operating from our Ready Steady Store self storage facilities in Tunstall since 2016, and use their huge 2000 sq ft unit as a base for their business to help provide their customers with an extensive range of parts.

The challenge

For Axxa Ltd, our storage facilities were ideal as they provide a solution to their need for a cost-effective business premises while also providing the perfect place to keep their huge range of products.

It’s no secret that business premises can be costly and, when searching for office and warehousing requirements, Managing Director Steve Johnson knew that the business needed ample space in order to fulfil all of their needs. 

The solution

Safe and secure, our Tunstall self storage units provided the perfect solution, allowing them to both manage stock and deal with customers, all from the safety and comfort of their own private unit, with none of the additional costs that normally come when you rent out commercial space.

Having used self storage as part of their business model since they set up 10 years ago, and with a growing number of staff, our handy location, along with our flexibility and affordability set us apart:

“We like working from Ready Steady Store as we can rapidly increase (or decrease) the amount of space we need, making it a cost effective solution. Paying one monthly fee is perfect for us, and great for cash flow control, while we also love that our staff can be based at the facility, too”

Setting up home in one of our largest units allows them to take full advantage of the space, making it work for them. Similarly, our Receipt and Despatch service allows them to handle all incoming and outgoing orders by using our team as an extension of theirs, helping them to save on both time and extra staffing costs:

“We use storage for warehousing, distribution and office space, and regularly access our unit out of office hours, which really suits the way we operate. We have always found Ready Steady Store Staff helpful and responsive and they’re always keen to offer solutions to our challenges. ”

To mark their 10-year anniversary, Axxa Ltd has recently undergone a rebrand to carry them through the next 10 years, and beyond! Take a look at their website now to find out more.
