The 27-year-old company began as a local moving company and then expanded into the self-storage business to better accommodate their customers’ needs. Owner John Beyer said they began opening storage facilities around Long Island at their locations in Huntington, Floral Park and Islandia, and when the Glen Head resident realized nothing was happening with the former Photocircuits Corporation building, he decided to see if it was worth investing in. The circuit-board maker shut its doors in 2007 after 56 years of operation, and Beyer said he did an extensive amount of research on the site before purchasing it. The sale closed last August, and after investing $3.5 million to do a gut renovation of the 52,000 square foot site, they now have a two-story, 89,000 square foot “Class A” storage facility that is fully climate controlled.
