May 2015Access Expands in Three Domestic Markets

Companies in New York, Oregon and California join the industry's third largest provider

Livermore, California, May 13, 2015 — Rob Alston, CEO of Access, has announced the company's recent expansion in three of the company's existing markets with the acquisition of North State Record Solutions in Chico, California, the records division of Tri-State Moving in Bohemia, New York (Long Islandmarket), and the records business of MQI, Inc. in Beaverton, Oregon (Portlandmarket). These transactions bring the total number of acquisitions Access has completed to 82 since its founding in 2004.

In Chico, Access will add records center facilities to its current presence there while in Long Island and Portland, the acquired client accounts' inventories will be relocated to existing Access facilities in the market.

As Access steadily continues its growth-through-acquisition strategy and although locations are different, the story behind them remains very much the same. Access President John Chendo said, "In each of these cases the companies we have purchased are 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 and a nationwide footprint to their clients." He continued, "We are keenly aware of how hard these owners have worked to grow their businesses in reaching this milestone. We recognize how much they are dedicated to those they have employed for many years and the valued client relationships they have built with such care. We admire and respect that. We are firmly committed to the proper integration of their company into Access so that it is a smooth one that, in the end, benefits everyone involved."

As the largest privately held records and information management services provider in the United States, Access now serves 40 markets across the nation and in Latin America and the Caribbean.
