Nottingham-Based Shredall SDS Group Celebrates 25th Anniversary and 25% Increase in Annual Turnover

Nottingham-based total information management company, Shredall SDS Group is celebrating its 25th anniversary this month, recognising years of partnering with businesses across the UK to digitise, store, and dispose of their confidential documents.

Shredall SDS Group is marking the occasion by donating £2,500 to a local charity to be chosen by its employees. Staff at the Nottingham headquarters were also treated to an afternoon of drinks and food to toast the Group’s recent success, with the company reporting a 25% increase in turnover last year.

“For a business that started out here with just one man and a van to reach 25 years is amazing,” said Nik Williams, managing director of Shredall SDS Group. “Shredall SDS Group still has many of the same customers from 25 years ago and we are very grateful for their loyalty. The success of the past and our positive trajectory promise a great future for the Group.”

Lucy Shipley, group director, commented:

“Our ability to adapt to market changes is the key to our success. We’ve faced the gradual shift towards a ‘paper light’ generation and view digital solutions as the future of document management. We also support the circular economy, partnering with sustainability-focused events such as COP26 and earning the title of Paper Recycling Business of the Year 2021.”

The family-run firm was originally founded by Lloyd Williams in 1997 and offered confidential shredding services to businesses in the Nottingham area. It has since branched out into document storage, data destruction, document scanning, document indexing, recycling and more recently launched its sister company, Loft Self Storage.

Based at Bestwood Village Business Park, Loft Self Storage offers self-storage containers to both domestic and business customers. It also provides a mobile self storage service, picking up items from customers’ homes or offices, transporting them for storage, and returning them when required. Due to the instant popularity of its self storage offering, the Group has just purchased an additional 20 storage containers.

There have been other exciting technological developments at Shredall SDS Group’s Nottingham HQ over the past few months. Responding to increased customer demand, the company invested in an industrial-sized Vecoplan shredding machine early in February 2022, tripling its previous output.

It has also recently completed a full re-racking of archives to hold over 7 million additional documents and built two new high-security storage vaults with constant temperature and humidity controls, cementing the firm’s position as a leading information management provider.

In addition to its cutting-edge technology, Shredall SDS Group has become known for its commitment to excellent customer service.  In the run-up to its 25th anniversary, the company has been recognised with the Feefo Platinum Trusted Service Award 2022, having maintained an excellent average customer rating of 4.5 out of 5 for over three years.
