Shred America Acquires Mobile Record Shredders


Mobile Record Shredders, a Pueblo, Colorado area-based information destruction company, is pleased to announce that they have merged with Shred America, LLC to form Shred America Colorado. After owning and operating Mobile Record Shredders for 20 years, Joe O’Brien, Lawrence and Julia Anaya, conducted a search for a growing independently owned company that would uphold the legacy of customer service and quality standards of secure information destruction; and also take great care of the team assembled at Mobile Record Shredders and they could not be happier with the outcome:

“We were looking for a partner who could take us to new levels of success while keeping our two main goals intact- great customer service provided by a highly trained and dedicated staff. I can’t think of anyone better than Shred America to keep that legacy going strong”
