Freeport Self Storage, a family-owned and operated business, celebrated its 25th anniversary on Jan. 19. The event was attended by the Mayor of Freeport, Robert Kennedy, members of the Freeport Chamber of Commerce, and representatives from other local offices.
The company was founded by Paul Kampa, an alumnus of the United States Merchant Marine Academy, in 1997 and has grown and prospered while providing service to Freeport and the surrounding communities.
The anniversary celebration was a testament to the company’s resilience and commitment to providing excellent service to its customers, even in the face of economic downturns, natural disasters, and a global pandemic. In 2016, Paul Kampa was joined by his son David, an alumnus of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute with a background in civil engineering, to redevelop the property at 73 E Merrick Road. By October of 2018, construction was completed on an additional 60,000 square foot building on the site, nearly doubling the amount of self-storage units available to customers along with many other site upgrades and amenities.
Freeport Self Storage provides self-storage solutions to customers with a variety of uses and needs. Many families moving, renovating, or storing seasonal items choose the facility for the fair pricing and excellent service. The business has continued to evolve by recently offering customers online move-ins through their website and mobile app access to the facility at FreeportStorage.com.
“Freeport Self Storage offers an affordable alternative to owning or renting our own warehouse,” Owner of Loco Joe’s Trading Company, Joe Richter said.
As a token of appreciation to the community that has supported the business for so many years, a donation was presented to the Freeport Little League during the anniversary ribbon cutting ceremony.
“As a family owned and operated small business, we take pride in serving the community and other local businesses. We are excited to continue serving our customers for the next 25 years,” David said.
