Livermore, CA, November 6, 2014 – Rob Alston, CEO of Access, has announced the company’s acquisition of Cintas Corporation’s document storage and imaging businesses in ten U.S. markets. This transaction is the 74th for Access and represents the company’s expansion in its existing markets of Cincinnati, Chicago, Phoenix and Atlanta and the entry into new markets including Miami, Indianapolis, Columbus, Cleveland, St. Louis and Denver. Closing took place on October 31, 2014.
Founded in 2004, Access is recognized as one of the fastest growing and most dynamic companies in the records management industry. The company now has an extensive footprint across the United States and a rapidly growing presence in Latin America.
The Access team is led by CEO Rob Alston and President John Chendo. “We are excited to announce this broad expansion of our business” said Rob Alston. “By adding six new markets to the 32 we already serve, we are now in a position to meet more of our clients’ needs in perhaps all of the cities in which they do business. Moreover, this acquisition adds significant new capabilities and strength to our digital access solutions offering.”
“The U.S. leaders of the Cintas Document Management business will be joining us, including the general managers currently running each of the branches. Executive Chad Bevington will take on the role of Vice President of Sales for Access and Michael Kosegi will become our Vice President, Digital Services,” Alston added. “We are very pleased with the high caliber of all our new team members joining us from Cintas Document Management.”
John Chendo added “This clearly represents a major step forward for Access. Access won’t be slowing down, however, but rather taking this opportunity to fuel continued growth over the long term. As a part of that effort we will continue to search for and identify strategic acquisition opportunities with select records and information management service providers here in the U.S. and internationally.”
