Shred-it has opened its newest European shredding facility in Nottingham, United Kingdom.
The new branch, which officially opened July 1, will occupy 16,500 square feet at Nottingham's Centurion Business Centre.
"Positioned at the heart of the East Midlands, with excellent transport links and populated by an increasingly diverse range of public and private sector organizations, Nottingham provides the perfect location for our flagship branch in the region," said Rob Briggs, Shred-it's GM.
"In these times of economic downturn, we are also pleased to be creating new jobs in the area, a move we see as testament to the vibrancy of Nottingham's business environment."
Shred-it already provides document destruction solutions to almost 2,000 customers throughout the East Midlands, ranging from government agencies to financial and legal institutions. In the past year, Shred-it's customer base within the region has grown by 20 percent, as businesses have become increasingly conscious of the potential financial and reputational risks posed by the prospect of a breach of confidential data.
Shred-it's East Midlands customers were previously serviced by Shred-it from Manchester, but will now be supported by a fleet of eight specially designed shredding trucks and three customer support vans based in Nottingham.
The branch is Shred-it's 15th in the UK in just seven years, the first having opened in Manchester in 2002
