The National Storage story began in 1995, when our Founder and Managing Director Andrew Catsoulis, and his wife Karen, built their first storage centre on a block of dirt in Oxley, Brisbane.
National Storage was officially founded in December 2000 following the merger of Stowaway Self-Storage, National Mini Storage and Premier Self-Storage.
Wine storage was the next addition to National Storage’s storage offering when the company acquired Wine Ark in November 2007.
To service the increasing demand, a fully operational contact centre was opened in Brisbane in January 2010. In 2021, the epicentre of the business is home to over 35 highly trained customer service agents.
A milestone moment for the company followed in 2013 when National Storage listed on the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) and formed National Storage REIT (NSR) as the first publicly listed independent, internally managed and fully integrated owner and operator of self-storage centres in Australia.
National Storage entered the New Zealand market in August 2015, with the acquisition of a portfolio in Christchurch.
In June 2020, National Storage Robina became the first fully automated storage centre in Australia featuring Bluetooth Smart Access technology.
Later that year, National Storage was awarded the Canstar Blue Awards for Most Satisfied Customers across both Australia and New Zealand.
Our most recent, and biggest milestone to date occurred in January 2021 with the opening of National Storage’s 200th centre at Biggera Waters on the Gold Coast.
“We are only part way through this journey. We still see so much opportunity and so much growth and development in this business that I feel like we’ve just really hit the runway, taxiing ready for take off. I am quietly confident that we’ll see some of our greatest achievements and milestones in the next five years, rather than the last 25.”
