Recall Acquires Shred-it's US-Based Document Storage Business

Norcross, GA (PressExposure) March 01, 2011 -- Document management expansion in key markets of Chicago, Dallas and Birmingham.

Recall, a global leader in document storage, secure document destruction, digital solutions and data protection, announced today it has acquired the US-based document storage business, operating under the Securit trade name, from Shred-it International Inc.

Headquartered in Canada and founded in 1988, Shred-it is a privately-owned information security company operating in 16 countries. Recall acquired the document storage business in the United States, while Shred-it will continue to own and operate its records management business in Canada.

Recall North America President Mark Wesley said, "This acquisition supports our growth strategy, and will expand our footprint in Recall's largest region. Recall makes significant investments every year to improve our operations, enhance security and safety, and develop new services to meet our customers changing needs. We believe our newly acquired customers will benefit from these investments as well as our experience as a global leader in this industry."

"This is a strategic opportunity for Recall as these three markets are attractive, and the acquisition will allow us to leverage existing infrastructure to better serve and expand our customer base. The cultures of Recall and Shred-it have a similar focus on customer service and support, and together we have jointly communicated the change in ownership to these customers."

Shred-it President and CEO Vince De Palma said, "We have decided to divest our US records management business, redirecting our resources and capital to our core document destruction business and Canadian records management businesses."
