A NEW £2 million state-of-the-art storage facility has opened in Colchester.

The town's MP Will Quince officially opened Hills Building Group's new facility Hills Self Storage, which is located in Brook Street Business Centre.

The 50,000 sq ft facility has units ranging in size from 500 sq ft and 1,300 sq ft which will provide space for commercial and individual clients.

Mr Quince: "This is a fabulous boon for entrepreneurs and for more established business leaders looking to expand their enterprise in a measured, cost-effective, and flexible manner.

"It is a little-known fact that the self storage industry incubates more than 150,000 business interests nationwide.

"Hills Building Group has demonstrated its courage in diversifying from its core development business, and has created, in the process, an opportunity to help numerous other enterprises to flourish.”
