Fort Myers, FL. (April 14, 2022) — Storm Smart Industries, the largest storm-protection and lifestyle-enhancement company in the state, announced moving its administrative offices in February to a new, larger office space to accommodate continued business growth. To celebrate the moment, Storm Smart Industries held a ribbon-cutting ceremony sponsored by the Fort Myers Chamber of Commerce and the Cape Coral Chamber of Commerce on Thursday, April 14th at 10:00 AM. The new administrative offices are located on the Chicos FAS campus.

Storm Smart Industries, which celebrated its 25th year in business in 2021, will leverage its new office space to expand its customers’ services while providing new internal operational efficiencies. The new offices will also provide Storm Smart administration with an improved, state-of-the-art workspace to facilitate internal and external collaboration and communication while providing the company with additional room for growth. All manufacturing and warehousing remain at the existing 6182 Idlewild Street location in Fort Myers.

Storm Smart Industries specializes in storm protection and lifestyle enhancement for home and business owners. The business is committed to providing each and every one of its customers with high-quality service and support. Storm Smart’s innovative approach starts with a thorough analysis of what a customer needs to ensure peace of mind during hurricane season.

“26 years ago, Storm Smart began out of Cape Coral as a one-man show in a Garage by Brian Rist; today, approximately 90,000 homes are protected by Storm Smart,” said Scot Burris, CEO of Storm Smart Industries. “We’re proud of the growth of Storm Smart and are inspired by this community that we call home. More than anything, this move represents our continued ironclad commitment to serving our customers and helping them with all of their storm protection needs.”

"We purchased our Storm Smart hurricane screens last year for peace of mind during hurricane season. Little did we know that we would use them almost every day all year round! They not only offer protection in the event of powerful storms but they provide daily shade in the late afternoon sun as well as rain protection during afternoon showers, allowing us to use our lanai as an integrated outdoor living space. We love them and everyone who sees them, wants them."
