Janus International Group, Inc. (“Janus” or the “Company”), a world-leading supplier of self-storage products and related access control technologies, is thrilled to announce the opening of its brand-new manufacturing facility in Wrocław, Poland. The investment into the state-of-the-art Polish plant marks a significant milestone for Janus and the self-storage industry in Europe.
A new trailblazing manufacturing plant
The city of Wrocław was chosen as an ideal location to complement Janus’s existing production and distribution centre in County Durham, UK. Wrocław, a vibrant and well-connected city, is located in the southwestern region of Silesia. The Wrocław factory, based in a building managed by real estate specialists Prologis, will serve as a European hub for the manufacturing and distribution of self-storage door and partition systems, portable units, and access control solutions. A key objective of this addition to the portfolio is Janus’s ability to meet the growing demand for self-storage solutions in Europe. The new facility allows Janus to streamline its production and logistics processes to significantly increase capacity. The Wrocław plant features advanced machinery and technology to enable Janus to continue providing the latest solutions to its European clientele.
Ramey Jackson, Chief Executive Officer, Janus International Group said: “The opening of our new facility in Wrocław represents our strategic and thoughtful approach to growth in the European self-storage market. We feel it positions Janus International Europe to best serve our customers who are at the heart of our mission as a global organisation. I am grateful for the leadership of Colin Jeromson and his team who have made this expansion a reality.”
Colin Jeromson, Managing Director, Janus International Europe Ltd stated: “As the market-leading self-storage manufacturer and the only full-solution provider, we are very happy to expand into Poland. Operational excellence sits at the core of our business and our talented manufacturing teams in the UK and Poland are committed to producing high-quality, advanced, and sustainable products. We want to thank all our local partners, including Prologis, Argon Legal, and Cushman & Wakefield and are really looking forward to developing the next generation of European self-storage facilities.”
Marcin Kruszewski, Leasing and Customer Experience Manager, Prologis commented: “We would like to express our gratitude to Janus for their trust and look forward to our collaboration. The Janus DC4 building will be BREEAM certified and it is a great joy to know that our shared commitment to sustainability will be recognised.”
A team dedicated to product quality, innovation, and sustainability
Janus’s self-storage factory in Wrocław will not only bolster the company’s manufacturing capabilities but also create employment opportunities in the local community. Positions are available in production, logistics, administration, and many other departments. All facility staff will adhere to strict quality control measures and sustainability practices, ensuring that the production processes align with Janus’s commitment to environmental responsibility.
Craig Conway, International Production Director, Janus International Europe Ltd said: “I am incredibly excited to launch our new facility in Poland. This is a region that offers immense potential for self-storage in addition to outstanding manufacturing talent. We have recruited a fantastic local team in Wrocław, led by our Factory Manager Arkadiusz Stefaniuk who has a solid background in self-storage production. Moreover, I am very pleased that Janus’s sustainable manufacturing practices and products have gained industry recognition in both the UK and Europe. Environmental sustainability is an area we will continue to focus on as we implement the latest machinery and technology to deliver best-in-class products to our European customers.”
The very first delivery from the new factory is allocated to Janus’s long-standing customer Less Mess Storage, a leading operator in the region. Guy Pinsent, CEO, commented: “We are delighted with the excellent quality of Janus’s products, and continued top service and support from their team. The cooperation between our companies helps us deliver best quality self-storage and maintain our market dominance in Poland and the Czech Republic.
