A familiar phrase within the film and television industry, Send it to the Salt Mine has come to stand for incomparablly secure and remarkably affordable film and sound archiving.
Going underground began decades ago. Film and television studios recognized that our uniquely cool and dry atmosphere, the distance from natural disaster and metropolitan exposure, and our location 58 floors below ground, were ideal for long term archiving of movie films. We eliminated high warehouse lease rates as well as reduced labor and utility costs. Our film vaults are void of anything that challenges asset protection at surface level, including seismic activity, fires, and intrusion.
We have grown to secure more film and sound elements than any company in the Western Hemisphere, being we are the largest records center at any one address. Our three unique mine locations in Kansas, Missouri and Kentucky offer climate controlled vaults, refrigerated storage, bonded inspection and cataloging services, same day retrieval, same day shipping, and refrigerated transportation services.
