Billy M. Ables learned the sheet metal trade at a very early age in Dallas, Texas. In his early twenties he decided to open his own shop in Kaufman, Texas and a few years later he took his young son and young wife to Ennis where he started a business that has thrived for over 70 years. As Mr. Ables built banks and schools and office buildings, he decided to also build storage units for himself. Over the years he has grown his storage inventory to almost 800 units. Ables developed a concrete tilt wall construction that resulted In substantial structures that are long lasting and provide maximum security for his customers. Mr. Billy passed at age 92, but his staff and his family led by Judge Stephen Ables continue to provide safe, secure, and convenient storage for the citizens of the City of Ennis, Ellis County, and surrounding counties.
