Industry Remembers MakoRabco’s Wright


Caesar Wright, executive chairman of MakoRabco and a frequent and respected speaker at SSA conferences over the years, passed away August 16, 2022. Wright was 52.

Wright spent 28 years with Mako Steel, based in Carlsbad, California. In 2021, Mako Steel and New State Capital Partners made a majority investment in Rabco Enterprises, forming a nationwide self storage solutions company.

Wright was dedicated to the company he built and the employees who worked for him and the clients they served. MakoRabco became the largest nationwide company providing design, supply, and installation of storage facilities.
