Busy 2021 for StorageVault
It’s been a busy 2021 for the firm.

April saw the launch of FlexSpace Logistics, an end-to-end network service offering storage, logistics and inventory management to businesses of all sizes.
In October, StorageVault acquired 10 locations worth $130 million from seven vendor groups. Five of the operations, totalling $72 million, were related-party acquisitions.
Early in the year, longtime director Blair Tamblyn left the board to resume his position as chair and CEO of Timbercreek Financial.
Benjamin Harris, previously CEO of LINK Logistics (Blackstone’s U.S. industrial real estate platform) was appointed to replace him. Tamara Souglis was also appointed its corporate secretary.
StorageVault’s third-quarter 2021 results revealed revenue increased to $56.9 million compared to $40.1 million in Q3 2020.
In 2020, the company was recognized as a TSX Venture 50 Company for the third time. The recognition is a ranking of the top performers on the TSX Venture Exchange over the last year based on share price, market capitalization and one-year trading volume.
The company had completed its IPO in November 2007.
StorageVault’s stock price closed at $6.33 on Thursday and has been rising steadily from the $4.75 range where it sat six months ago.
