Access Expands in U.S. and Latin America

Five acquisitions represent expansion of four markets and addition of one

November 1, 2016 - Livermore, CA Rob Alston, CEO of Access, recently announced the company’s five most recent acquisitions, one broadening its reach into Iowa and the other four adding more clients in existing markets. These transactions bring the total number of Access acquisitions to 105 since its founding in 2004.

On June 30, Access entered the Dubuque, Iowa market with the purchase of InfoSafe Records Management, acquired from The Hodge Companies. Only one month later, on August 1, Archive Record Storage, Inc. in Sarasota, Florida added to the local Access branch formed in March 2016.

The acquisition of the records management accounts of Crown Worldwide in San Jose, Costa Rica, on September 30, expanded Access’ presence there. Access operates under the name Retrievex in the Latin American countries of Costa Rica and Panama.

The records management accounts of Seattle office furniture supplier, Trefethen and Co., Inc., were acquired on October 4. North Shore Records Management, in Cleveland, was acquisition #105 with the transaction closing on October 17.

“Each of these additions to our company represents important components of our overall strategic plan for steady growth achieved both organically and through acquisition,” Alston stated. “We are excited about the way we have positioned Access in the marketplace, including the very positive way we are perceived by records management company owners as the one they trust most to care for their clients moving forward. That means a lot to me personally. Our vision is to exceed the expectations of our clients, company, and community every day. We hope that all of our new clients joining us from these acquisitions will recognize that commitment.”

As the largest privately held records and information management provider in the United States, Access now serves more than 60 major markets across the nation, as well as Brazil, Latin America, and the Caribbean.
