LIVERMORE, CA — October 24, 2012 – Rob Alston, CEO of Access, announced today the company’s acquisition of Adams Data Management, the largest independent records and information management services in Georgia with facilities in Tucker and Gainesville.

This transaction represents an expansion of the company’s southeastern regional operations and adds significantly to Access’ facilities and capabilities in the Greater Atlanta market. With its recent acquisition of Retrievex, Access now provides services in 26 markets throughout the United States and in Costa Rica.

Alston explained, “Access has long enjoyed and benefitted from its presence in the Atlanta market and, today, with the addition of Adams Data Management, we are dramatically expanding there. With our newly expanded team in Atlanta we are committed to providing the former Adams clients with the very best records and information management services possible including both paper-based records management as well as comprehensive digital solutions, off-site media management and secure destruction services.”

“I am excited for Adams to be a part of Access,” Adams’ president Jimmy Adams shared. “Our clients have been asking us to expand our service locations so that they could receive the same, high level of service they have come to expect from us locally. Now that we are part of the nationwide Access network, they will have new, broader capabilities available to them here and in other markets. This is truly a winning combination for our clients and the members of our staff.”
