UV&S Expands Offerings to Include Digitized Microfilm, Microfiche, and Aperture Cards

Hutchinson, KS – Underground Vaults and Storage, Inc. (UV&S) recently purchased its second microforms scanner in an effort to better serve clients. The scanner, a Konica Minolta MS7000MKII, will digitize microfilm, microfiche, and aperture cards.

UV&S Vice President of Operations Jim Ontjes pointed out that with this machine we are now able to provide clients a digitized image of their microform storage that can be uploaded onto a CD or immediately emailed to a customer needing quick access to their stored records.

Ontjes explained We have been providing this service to a single client for the past four years. The acquisition of this additional machine will give clients the option of receiving digitized images in a short period of time without needing to send microforms to an outside vendor for duplication.

This new machine will aid current UV&S clients storing microforms. Clients interested in utilizing this service should call their facility service contact or customer service representative.

Underground Vaults & Storage Inc. (UV&S), a privately-held information and records management company established in 1959, operates 3 underground and 3 above ground secure storage facilities. It is perhaps known best for storing millions of items including movie films, data tapes, and paper records, within a 650 foot deep salt mine in Kansas. Clients from across the United States and around the world entrust important records, data, and assets to Underground Vaults & Storage.
