Underground Vaults & Storage relocates destruction operations
New building and equipment increase efficiency, capacity and security
WICHITA, KS — Underground Vaults & Storage, Inc. announced today that they are relocating their Wichita destruction services division, which operates under the name of Document Resources, to a newly constructed, 25,000 square foot operations center at 3333 N. Mead in Wichita. The destruction operations center will house new shredding equipment in a dedicated, secure, document shredding room that is AAA certified by the National Association for Information Destruction (NAID), the highest security standard in the information destruction industry.
“The new shredding equipment functions at a level that will increase the speed and efficiency of our shredding capabilities as much as 60%,” says Underground Vaults & Storage, Inc. President, Lee Spence. “The need for local, secure destruction of documents is continuing to grow and our goal is to meet that need at the highest levels of safety, security and output.”
Underground Vaults & Storage, Inc. actively recycles all shredded documents. In 2014 the company delivered more than 3,400 tons of recycle-ready paper shreds to paper recycling mills in the United States. The Wichita location produced more than half of the total amount—1,755 tons—a number that Spence expects to double in 2015.
The new building will also provide more storage capacity and will increase the total footprint of Underground Vaults & Storage, Inc. in Wichita to over 150,000 square feet.
Underground Vaults & Storage, Inc. has provided records and information management solutions in Kansas since 1959.
