Two Local Information Destruction Companies Join Forces
Shred360 and Georgia Data Shred Close Merger
Columbia, SC – February 1, 2019 – Two of the southeast’s foremost shredding companies, Shred360 and Georgia Data Shred have announced they will merge operations under the Shred360 brand. The merger was completed on January 1st, 2019 and will create the largest, locally owned, certified information destruction company in the Southeast.
Shred360, founded by partners John Anderson and James Christie, and Georgia Data Shred, founded by Ron and Terrie Harper are pioneering companies in the shredding industry. James Christie said, “When we started Shred360 we had one concept in mind, to be the best shredding company in the industry.” Ron acknowledges the same thing, “Great customer service wins every time. There are large national companies, but we’ve found a niche in providing our local customers with superior service.”
Now the two companies will have more resources available to provide small and large businesses the same kind of customer service and security they are known for among their clients. John Anderson shared his vision about service, “That’s why we were attracted to Georgia Data Shred. Their attention to customer service and security is exactly how we do things.”
“Shred360 and Georgia Data Shred spend a lot of time and energy focusing on our customers,” Terrie Harper said. “We are not going to sacrifice that foundation; it’s just the way we do business.”
Similar histories and philosophies led the companies toward this partnership, but the benefit for the industry and the community will be felt across the entire Southeast. James Christie said, “The merger puts us in a better position to compete in the marketplace. We are providing a stronger company that will be better for our customers.”
Shred360 is AAA-Certified for on-site and off-site destruction of both print paper media and hard drives, and exceeds rigorous standards established by the NAID Quality Certification Program. For over 12 years, Shred360 has provided secure and high-tech methods for destruction, record storage solutions, scanning services and e-waste recycling.
The merged headquarters will be located at Shred360’s current secure facility in Columbia, SC.
