Houston acquisition broadens service footprint significantly

[NEWS] Livermore, CA, January 26, 2015 – Rob Alston, CEO of Access, has announced the company’s recent entrance into Houston, Texas with the acquisition of Advanced Record Storage, a company founded in 1976. Access has completed 96 acquisitions since its founding in 2004.

“With extensive coverage of the market area, Advanced is recognized as Houston’s largest privately owned and operated record storage business. We are pleased to now be serving our new clients from Advanced but, additionally, to have the capability to meet the needs of clients we currently serve elsewhere, now in Houston.” Alston stated. “This represents an exciting milestone – and a considerable advantage – for us to be available to clients in all major U.S. markets.”

“Advanced Record Storage is a good fit for Access. The company’s high quality record centers and focus on customer service are much like ours,” Access President John Chendo shared. “The former owners of the company, like so many before them, clearly recognized that partnering with a larger, international firm like Access will provide future opportunities for their team members and broadened service capabilities to their clients. These are benefits we are now discussing with similar firms throughout the U.S. and beyond. We expect to acquire several more companies like Advanced in the near future.”

This announcement comes as Access has gathered together more than 150 members of its leadership in San Antonio, Texas for its Annual Summit Meeting. Leif Babin, highly acclaimed co-author of “Extreme Ownership: How U.S. Navy Seals Lead and Win” presented the keynote this morning.

As the largest privately held records and information management services provider in the United States, Access now serves 45 markets across the nation and in Latin America and the Caribbean.
