WOBURN, Mass., May 23, 2019 – Access, the largest privately held records and information management (RIM) services provider in the world, today announced that it was selected by Boston Business Journal as a Fast 50 2019 company, a list of the 50 fastest growing private companies in Massachusetts. The Boston Business Journal (BBJ) revealed that Access is the largest company on the list, with 2018 revenue of $348 million.
