Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. -Mark Twain

Anchor Storage Acquires Peñasco Security Storage


Los Cabos-based Anchor Storage, S de RL de CV has purchased Peñasco Security Storage, a self-storage facility in Puerto Peñasco. Located right on the main highway coming into town, just north of the old airport on the west side, the building still has the big "Penasco Security Storage" on the wall but that will change soon to "Anchor Storage."

The acquisition was made by Almacen’s wholly owned subsidiary, Almacen Storage-MX, S de RL de CV, a Mexican corporation. It will be operated under the brand name of another Almacen wholly owned Mexican subsidiary, Anchor Storage, S de RL de CV.

The facility will be getting a face lift and the new owners will be adding "Concierge Services". Storage will be available for everything from goods to cars, boats and RVs, and even space to display your items for sale or rent. Anchor Storage will also have document storage and several customized services.

The new motto they are rolling out is "Somos mas - We are more!" You can find more information at http://anchorstorage1234.com/

This acquisition is the first for Almacen which has been developing and operating mini storage facilities in Mexican resort areas. “We are pleased with this first acquisition as we have been doing ground-up development in the past,” commented Almacen General Manager Ana Hulko. “This puts us ahead in adding a profitable facility to our growing network of storage locations.”

Peñasco Security Storage has been operating for nearly twenty years in Mexico and is the main facility for storage in the area, located on Highway 8 coming into Rocky Point. Joseph Dennis, the son of owner Joe Dennis Valenzuela, will be joining Almacen’s Board of Directors. “We are thrilled with the prospects of being part of the Anchor Storage network and see great opportunities to grow and better service our clients,” said Dennis.

Almacen Storage-MX, S de RL de CV is based in Cabo San Lucas, BCS, Mexico, and buys and develops land for self-storage. Anchor Storage, S de RL de CV is based in San Jose del Cabo, BCS, Mexico, and leases and operates storage and parking facilities across Mexico. www.AnchorStorage.com.MX
