Shredding firm takes its place in Security Alliance

Sheffield-based secure shredding company Russell Richardson & Sons has become a member of The Security Alliance, a collaboration of a number of the UK’s leading security companies.

Designed to help businesses nationwide ensure their security measures remain one step ahead of any criminal activity, The Security Alliance was formed as a direct response to customer feedback for a one-stop operation for security solutions.

By providing access to security services that simultaneously reduce risk and manage costs, The Security Alliance acts as a central contact point for customers seeking high-level security and brings together specialists across the industry to meet requirements.

Russell Richardson will provide onsite and offsite commercial information destruction to ensure The Security Alliance customers are compliant with the Data Protection Act and help protect them from corporate and personal identity theft.

Donal Keane part of the marketing team for The Security Alliance, comments: “Each Security Alliance partner has been handpicked according to strict criteria, not only are we looking for security-based companies that are specialists in their particular area but also companies that share our customer focused ethos.

“We believe that ensuring the safe and secure destruction of confidential information forms part of a company’s overall security remit.

“So to complete our full service offering, we required a secure information destruction company and as an independent business that is clearly dedicated to customer satisfaction, Russell Richardson more than fitted the bill.”

The Security Alliance comprises of 15 core partner businesses, each expert in its individual security discipline from cash handling, monitoring and IT security to car park management and manned security solutions.

Jonathan Richardson, managing director at Russell Richardson, said: “Becoming part of The Security Alliance is an important step forward for us to be recognised as a security-based business rather than waste management.

“Our security-led shredding services help to protect businesses against corporate espionage, identity theft and breaches of the Data Protection Act, which is why we always strive to be accredited to the highest possible level.”
