Livermore, CA, September 10, 2013 – Rob Alston, CEO of Access, has announced that the company recently finalized the acquisition of Archivos Beeche Document Center in San Jose, Costa Rica.
This acquisition is the company’s second in the Latin American country. In May 2012, only months before Access doubled in size with its acquisition of Retrievex, Retrievex made its first acquisition outside the United States, purchasing Seguridoc (Document Management Solution S.A.), with facilities in both the Guadalupe and San Francisco sections of Costa Rica’s capital, San Jose. Access has retained the Retrievex brand there and will continue to build its business under that name as it continues to expand in the Latin American market.
Previously owned by the Beeche family, Archivos Beeche was primarily involved in hard copy records management with facilities located in the Pavas and Tibas areas of San Jose. Most of the Archivos Beeche staff has now joined Retrievex.
Carmen Brenes de Beeche is very pleased about her company becoming part of Retrievex, “We have built a wonderful document management company over the past 26 years and know that our customers will benefit by now becoming part of a larger and even more widely capable services provider. This provides opportunity for our employees, too, and that is very important to our family.”
Jose Fabio Garnier, originally with Seguridoc, is the Retrievex general manager in Costa Rica and will lead the integration of the acquired company. He is supported by Access Chief Information Officer Price Brannon, who is based in Philadelphia.
As the largest privately held records and information management services provider in the United States – and the third largest provider in the industry – Access serves 29 markets across the nation and in Latin America.
