Fredrik Lilja, who was with Nordic Storage for many years, has just started a new storage company in Gothenburg, Sweden, named InterTank Nordic.
As per today InterTank controls close to 150,000 m3 of capacity.
The company has capacity available immediately. ‘We will primarily be targeting customers throughout Scandinavia and western Europe,’ Lilja says and ‘We have already got some traders showing an interest.’
InterTank is also targeting rock cavern installations, a storage option which is unique to the Nordic countries.
All storage capacity will be available on flexible rental terms and the company will be offering a high level of service, a quick decision making process and efficient client administration.
Lilja is aware, however, that the company will face stiff competition. There is a lot of newly constructed capacity across Europe, as well as several on-going construction projects. ‘We are entering the market at a tough time, but we hope that by being a small, specialised player, we will be able to keep a close relationship with customers and offer a personalised service. We can’t afford to make any mistakes.
‘The last couple of years have been exceptional for the storage sector,’ Lilja adds. ‘This year the market is tougher and demand is lower than it has been. But we’re confident in the success of the company. As they say, the sun can’t always shine. Now the rain is falling on the storage market, but we are positive the sun will reappear sooner or later.’
