Founder, Paul Schmitt with Kathy Gibbons (controller)

Owners, Will Schmitt, Amy Schmitt Faulkner and Eric Schmitt

30 Years in the self-storage industry

Schmitt & Co has been in the self-storage business since 1978 when we developed our first storage facility. The company was founded by Paul Schmitt and is now owned by his three children Eric, Will and Amy. Schmitt & Co. continues to offer its clients the expertise in small company management, finance and marketing that Paul’s 40 years in the self-storage industry created.

One of our main strengths is that we are small and hands-on. Our staff is a well-qualified group whose background and experience covers all areas of property management. Our low ratio of properties to site supervisor is lower than industry average and allows us to spend a lot of time with each property.

Choosing the right self-storage management company is a very important decision. Please email us at [email protected] or give us a call - 877-883-9008 - and let’s talk about what we can do for you.
