Underground Vaults & Storage specializes in secure records and asset storage and management. UV&S serves national and international clients representing numerous industries including healthcare, legal, financial, insurance, cultural, oil/gas, entertainment, and government.
For 60 years, Underground Vaults & Storage has operated as a service-oriented records storage company. We provide all services required when using offsite storage for paper and media, multiple IT services, and secure destruction. UV&S strives to accommodate every client’s need for specialized procedures with their records & information management program.
Founded by a group of Wichita, Kansas businessmen who foresaw the need for a secure location to protect and manage information, UV&S incorporated on June 11, 1959. Numerous sights nationwide were evaluated and the salt mine in Hutchinson, Kansas, was selected. Factors including, but not limited to, the geographically central site, the security and environment inherent in a mine 650 feet below the earth’s surface, and the unlimited space this active mine could provide for expansion and business development made it their first choice. Known in the industry as an early entrant in the offsite records management field, UV&S is still a privately owned and operated company. Many of the original families continue in the management and direction of our company.
With over a half-century of established business practice, we have grown from our flagship salt mine facility to multiple facilities in four states and the United Kingdom. Growth came by opening new records centers and destruction facilities and through acquisitions.
