Access Acquires Companies in Baltimore, Denver, Phoenix

Access Expands in Phoenix and Denver, Adds Baltimore to Markets Served

Three companies acquired before year’s end

January 21, 2015 – Livermore, CA – Rob Alston, CEO of Access, has announced the company’s recent expansion in Phoenix and Denver and its entrance into Baltimore with three separate acquisitions, the acquisition of Record Center Innovations, Inc. in Phoenix; the purchase of NDX Archives, LLC, located outside Baltimore in Catonsville, Maryland; and the addition of Professional Document Management in Fort Collins, Colorado. The company has now completed 79 acquisitions since its founding in 2004. These closings all took place in December.

"Each of these transactions bring to Access a solid customer base, dedicated team members, state-of-the-art facilities and a true commitment to providing outstanding customer service," Alston noted. "In fact, the world class record center facility established by Record Center Innovations will become our company’s new Phoenix hub, allowing us to continue to grow significantly there. We are also pleased to be entering the Baltimore market with the addition of NDX Archives and excited about the expansion of our Denver market to now include Fort Collins."

Access President John Chendo explained, "The stories behind our acquisition of each of these companies is similar: well-run, profitable operations where owners clearly recognized the value of partnering with a larger, international firm like Access in order to provide future opportunities for their team members and broadened service capabilities and a nationwide footprint to their clients. I look forward to discussing these benefits with other industry business owners who may be considering the opportunity to join Access."

As the largest privately held records and information management services provider in the United States, Access now serves 40 markets across the nation and in Latin America.
