    Access Expands in Three U.S. Markets and Adds Another 
    Four new acquisitions include companies in Indiana, Hawaii, Phoenix and Tennessee

    Livermore, CA, November 4, 2015 – Rob Alston, CEO of Access, has announced the company’s recent expansion in three of its existing markets with the acquisition of Central Files, Inc. in South Bend, Indiana and IntegBusiness Services on Oahu and Maui, Hawaii; and with the acquisition of the route-based business of ABCO Recycling & Document Destruction in Phoenix, Arizona.* Access also has now moved into the Tri-Cities, Tennessee, market with the acquisition of Archive Logistics. These additional four transactions bring the total number of acquisitions made by Access, since its founding in 2004, to 91.
    “Each of these transactions are important to our company’s growth strategy and vision for the future,” Alston noted. “We are excited about our expansion in the Southeast with our move into Tennessee. The business that our friend and PRISM International President, Chad Sorrell, has built there combines a commitment and dedication to company, client and community very much like ours, so I know that our new clients in the Tri-Cities area will be pleased with the transition to Access.”
    Access President John Chendo explained, “As has been the case with so many of our company’s past acquisitions, the stories behind these transactions are similar. We have found well-run, profitable operations where owners clearly recognized the value of partnering with a larger, international firm like Access in order to provide future opportunities for their team members and broadened service capabilities with a nationwide footprint to their clients. I look forward to discussing these benefits with other industry business owners who may be considering the opportunity to join Access.”   
    As the largest privately held records and information management services provider in the United States, Access serves 42 markets across the nation and in Latin America and the Caribbean.
    * The original press release misrepresented the transaction between Access and ABCO Recycling & Document Destruction in Phoenix as an outright acquisition of the recycler. In fact, Access purchased only the route-based business along with assets directly related to this one portion of ABCO’s business. ABCO Recycling & Document Destruction continues to operate on its own now providing all services it previously has other than the route-based business in the Phoenix area.
