Both companies expand the company’s presence in existing markets

Livermore, CA, January 8, 2013 – Rob Alston, CEO of Access, announced today the company’s December 28th acquisition of FileSafe, Inc. in Jacksonville, Florida and the records management division of Sheeler Moving and Storage in Ventura, California.

Both companies are located within markets currently served by Access. FileSafe clients’ inventories will be relocated to Access’ current facilities in Jacksonville while Access will maintain the record center location currently housing Sheeler’s records division.

As the largest privately-held records and information management services provider in the United States, Access serves 27 markets across the nation and can offer a single-provider advantage to clients operating in those same markets. Access also has a presence in Costa Rica.

“We welcome our newest clients in Ventura and in Jacksonville,” said Alston. “We know they will benefit from the increased capacities, broader capabilities and nationwide footprint Access represents.”

Peter Berndt, Access’ Jacksonville General Manager, will orchestrate and oversee the FileSafe relocation while Access’ Vice President for the Southwestern Region, Robert Cummings, will manage the integration of the Sheeler acquisition.
