Janus International Group, Inc. – Global Supplier of Turn-Key Self-Storage, Commercial and Industrial Building Solutions – Celebrates 20th Anniversary
TEMPLE, Ga.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Janus International Group Inc. (NYSE: JBI) (“Janus” or the “Company”), a global manufacturer and supplier of turn-key self-storage, commercial, and industrial building solutions, including roll-up and swing doors, hallway systems, re-locatable storage units, and facility and door automation technologies, today announced the launch of a year-long celebration to commemorate the Company’s 20 years in business.
“Janus has grown significantly over the past two decades and since we established the Company in Temple, GA, our footprint now spans the world through subsidiaries in Europe, Australia and Asia and a joint venture in Mexico,” commented Janus’s CEO, Ramey Jackson.
“Since 2002, our operations have expanded to encompass 17 manufacturing and distribution plants, over 10,000 active customers and more than 1,500 employees globally. Across these 20 years, we have worked hard to stay ahead of the everchanging self-storage industry’s needs through constant innovation, attention to quality, and unmatched service. Representative of these initiatives is our game changing R3 program, whose genesis of restore, rebuild, and replace, and customer certification, has maximized value and rent for owners across the industry. We have also been fortunate to acquire some of the world’s leading self-storage hardware and services as well as component makers across many end-markets, including Asta, Steel Storage, Nokē along with its industry-leading Nokē Smart Entry Systems, BETCO, DBCI, and Access Control Technologies. Together, these accomplishments, combined with the growth in e-commerce, have helped us expand sales significantly into the commercial and industrial spaces, which today account for around a third of our business. And in 2018, our Company was acquired by Clearlake Capital Group, L.P., under whose ownership Janus became a public company last year.”
Added Tim Dietz, President & CEO of the national Self-Storage Association (“SSA”): “Over the past two decades, during a period of unprecedented industry growth, Janus has become the leader in the self-storage sector and one of the industry’s most prominent innovators. We are particularly appreciative Janus has encouraged the SSA activities that support the industry’s collective needs. Our advocacy and state programs, which help to protect the entire industry, as well as the scholarships we offer through the SSA Foundation, have all benefitted from Janus’s participation over the years.”
