Access Expands in Latin America and the Caribbean

Three companies acquired in three countries

May 5, 2015 - Livermore, CA – Rob Alston, CEO of Access, has announced the company’s recent expansion in Costa Rica and its entrance into Panama as well as Trinidad and Tobago.

In October 2014, Access acquired Datasafe, a leader in document management based in Panama City, Panama, from Semah Investments. W. Price Brannon, CIO of Access and its Chief Operating Officer in Latin America, pointed out that, “Panama is an economy that is constantly growing, with a great potential for business and provides us a platform for general expansion”. He added, “This agreement is of great value to our new clients in Panama because of the investments that Access will make in infrastructure, technology and the adoption of best practices.”

MetroArchivos, located in San Jose, Costa Rica, was also acquired in October and adds to the significant presence Access had already grown with its previous acquisition of Archivos Beeche there in August 2013 that built on existing business Retrievex – acquired by Access in October 2012 – had established in the capital city.

With the acquisition of Port-of-Spain based Chapmans Records Management in Trinidad and Tobago, Access entered the Caribbean marketplace in November.

“These companies have brought to our company a solid customer base, dedicated team members, secure facilities and a true commitment to providing outstanding customer service,” Alston stated. “In the Central American countries of Costa Rica and Panama we will continue to use the Retrievex brand to identify our company, while in English-speaking Trinidad and Tobago, the Access name will replace the Chapmans brand. We are very excited about our continued and future growth in these countries and more in Latin America and the Caribbean.”

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 and the Caribbean.
