Access has grown consistently since we were founded in 2004 through building our nationwide footprint in the U.S. and a strong presence in Latin America. Inc. Magazine has recognized us as one of the U.S.’s fastest growing companies for 11 consecutive years. Now, we’re ready to share how we’ve extended across all of Canada, with four additional acquisitions. For those keeping track, that makes 14 businesses welcomed into the Access family in Canada within the past two years.
Access operates coast-to-coast in Canada, serving most major cities and surrounding areas including Victoria, Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Saskatoon, Regina, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal, Quebec City, Saint John, Halifax, and St. John’s.
Chad Bevington, Access Executive Vice President for Canada, sums up well what this news means to us – and what we think it means for the Canadian market. He says, “The need for information governance, data protection, and records management has never been greater, as digital data grows exponentially and most companies still operate using paper documents. For those doing business in Canada, we’ve got you covered. Our complete information lifecycle solution includes safe, secure, and efficient offsite storage, document management software, secure destruction, and IG consulting capabilities. We help clients reduce their risk and operate more efficiently.”
Access now has more than 300 team members across Canada, operates more than 30 records centers and has more than 120 vehicles with the Access logo. All told, Access has acquired and integrated 14 separate companies in Canada in the past two years, establishing a strong foundation for its continued growth and investment.
With the official addition of Command Records Management (London, Ontario), Shredder’s, Inc. (Halifax, Nova Scotia), Access Records & Media Management (Victoria, British Columbia) and Butler Box & Storage, Inc. (Vancouver, British Columbia), Access is positioned to provide Canada with the highest standard in solutions and services across the entire information lifecycle. We were so excited to officially welcome everyone to the team earlier this month at our annual Leadership Summit. You can see the highlights in the video below.
