It all began in 1997 with one employee, £50,000 capital, a back bedroom as an office and parking the lorry on a 24hour lorry park. Shredall now has nationwide office locations, a team of 55 committed, reliable and competent team members. Every vetted employee is a top performer promoting trust and reliability everywhere they go. Shredall have served over 5,500 satisfied clients in the UK and they have serviced contracts for financial corporations with offices worldwide.

Shredall have always focused on the most important thing: The satisfaction of their customers and being ‘your document security people’. Shredall has maintained this ethos since its foundation in 1997, as a small, innovative company, right through till today, as a distinguished secure shredding, document storage and scanning company.

Managing Director, Lloyd Williams’s comments, “The aim is, and has always been, to store data or destruct your confidential waste securely. With identity theft rife in the UK and Europe, it is paramount that businesses select the right contractors and do not neglect the security aspect of Confidential Waste Destruction.”

Each year Shredall has grown more successful without exception and in recent years they have reached all- time records. Since 2012 Shredall have scooped global deals and over 10 public service contracts. Shredall are pleased to announce that in the month up to their 18th birthday, sales records are being broken month on month, with January being the best month since 1997.

Shredall Ltd has now strategically established offices in different cities of the United Kingdom from where they can best serve their customers making their services nationwide.

Lloyd comments, “We thank our customer’s loyalty and employees for the successful cooperation in the previous years. The success of the past and the positive trends now, promise a great future. We are looking forward to many more outstanding years!”

On attributing Shredall’s success in business for over 18 years, Sales Director Nik Williams comments, “It is our goal to be the recognised leader in our industry. We will demonstrate our leadership through service that exceeds our customers’ expectations, innovation that puts us on the leading edge of sustainable solutions and a commitment to being an employer of choice.”

Lloyd who pioneered the document security industry comments “We are delighted to be celebrating 18 years of business; our years of experience and expertise enable our clients to put their trust in us. I’ve still got many of the same customers from 18 years ago, so I’m very grateful for their loyalty.”

Company Director, Lucy Shipley quotes “18 years ago we were simply an onsite shredding company now we are a total information management company – giving our clients a range of add ons such as Product Destruction, WEEE recycling and onsite and offsite shredding.”

Lucy continues, “Shredall’s sister company SDS Document Storage and Document Scanning has also massively expanded since it first opened. SDS received their 1st confidential archive box 6 years ago and since then they have grown to look after approximately 175,000 confidential document storage boxes and 95,000 deeds. SDS also have a tape rotation vault.

Last year Lloyd Williams and his team expanded and opened a brand new 60,000sqft secure archive, making space for an additional 100,000 new document storage boxes with the warehouse already half full and new customers joining the SDS family each month.

The SDS Document Storage expansion has created more space for the delivery of brand new, top of the range, scanning machines capable to scan 140 A4 sheets per minute for the expanding SDS Document Scanning arm of the business.

Document Storage and Document Scanning both have benefits, which is why SDS aims to dedicate the best avenue for their customers and their businesses.

Lloyd comments, “SDS Document Storage and Scanning are continuing to grow and as a well established family business we pride ourselves on being able to offer a one stop shop specifically tailored to our customer’s needs. We are positive the reason we are continuously growing is down to the fact we care about your total information management!”

Shredall has built a reputation as a confidential waste destruction company with a robust array of service offerings, including its sister company SDS’s services – document storage and scanning. Each week, Shredall receives feedback that we are outperforming competitors in our market. It is because of our unmatched performance and competitive pricing that Shredall and SDS has built a loyal client base.

Lloyd comments: “I never envisaged my children would even work for me let alone become my co-directors. However, it makes me extremely proud that they have become such valuable assets in such a short time. Between the three of us we hope to continue to grow the company on a significant scale. There is an amazing buzz of running a family business”
