The File Annex, Inc. acquired
Livermore, CA, September 24, 2014 – Rob Alston, CEO of Access, has announced the company’s recent acquisition of The File Annex, Inc., located in Buena, just outside of Vineland, in southern New Jersey. This transaction is the company’s 70th since its founding and represents an expansion of its Philadelphia and New Jersey markets presence.
The File Annex was formed in 1990 by Gene Gallaher as a result of the need he recognized for offsite records management services based on his experience in government contracting data management. Starting with one small warehouse building and one van, then acquiring another local records management company in 1993, the File Annex grew to include a dedicated staff and records storage facilities located on two campuses, serving an ever-growing list of valued customers.
Access Vice President Tim Walker is coordinating the full integration of this new Branch and its clients. Tim shared, “This expansion eastward from Philadelphia is a natural for us. We can now easily serve all of southern New Jersey from the Buena facilities and, as we have to date, from our headquarters in Aston, Pennsylvania. The former File Annex clients we are now bringing on board will be very pleased with the new, expanded capabilities and services we at Access can provide to them.”
Mike Gallaher, former Operations Manager of The File Annex, will continue to run the business in collaboration with the Access – Philadelphia operations team.
Access President John Chendo explained, “Gene Gallaher recognized the need to provide records and information management services in this area years ago. He recently recognized the many benefits a sale of his company to Access would afford both his clients and his team members. I look forward to discussing these unique Access benefits with more and more business owners, who like Gene before them, are now considering the opportunity to partner with the industry leader.”
As the largest privately held records and information management services provider in the United States, Access now serves 31 markets across the nation and in Latin America.
