DeVries Business Service of Spokane, Washington has announced the acquisition of Green Shred of Pasco Washington. This acquisition expands the services of DeVries into northeast Oregon. It is also the fourth mobile shred truck in the companies fleet. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Pat DeVries, President of DeVries Business Services said that Green Shred clients were looking for more services than just the mobile shredding the Green Shred offered. They are wanting to cross sell their document storage solutions to them.
There has been a move to integrate shredding into the rest of the records information management (RIM) industry for several years. It provides a cradle to grave solution for all the companies documents. As long as the company treats both services as unique then it will work out very well. The mistake that some people make is to treat shredding exactly like document storage services. They might not treat the smaller business with the same attention because they don’t have the hundreds of boxes that need shredded.
If you are having a problem getting great customer service out of your RIM provider we are happy to help. Shred Nations works with a variety of service providers. Each has their own advantages and we put you in contact with the best fit. That may be once a week or once a year. It can be one box serviced through Ship ‘n’ Shred or thousands of boxes shredded at your location. But what every request has in common is they are valuable documents to somebody. If they weren’t you would just leave them in the recycle bin.
