Takhzeen chairman Ahmed Al Qattan said that the project is the first storage facility of its kind in the region in terms of its size, scale, management approach and service capacity. “The operations are driven by a team of specialists in the field of storage to ensure the highest service standards are implemented and to build a basis for expansion of the concept in the GCC and the Middle East,” he added. “There are a number of reasons why individuals and businesses look to self-storage as an answer to limitations in space. “Takhzeen provides a means of de-cluttering, organising, and managing possessions, equipment, documents and much more,” he added. Takhzeen will become the Middle East and North Africa region’s foremost brand in self- storage.
