Based on increased revenue growth of 300, PROShred Houston will add another truck to it's existing fleet of vehicles. With increased reports of identity theft, demand for shredding services in Houston has escalated.

With reports of identity theft increasing even among high-visibility corporations, the need for speedy, convenient and protected personal privacy security is experiencing high need. Expert document destruction services are a vital part of industrial personal privacy insurance coverage, and accessing them just got simpler.

PROSHRED Security Houston is a growing force in safe and secure information destruction in the Greater Houston and Southeast Texas area. PROSHRED is adding a new truck to its existing fleet of Mobile Units in the first quarter of 2016, which can accommodate up tp 6.5 tons of paper and shred at a rate of up to 10,000 lbs an hour. This will compliment the service ability and capacity of their existing fleet of trucks.

PROSHRED Security Houston has experienced over a 300% growth from 2014 and this is the reason for the needed expansion and service offering according to Emily Bruce – Co-Founder and CEO of PROSHRED of Houston. “Our high-volume mobile shred trucks allow for us to provide our business clients whose security policies require that documents and proprietary information never ever leave their facilities until it is destroyed. Therefore completing the chain of custody and achieving legislative compliance. For numerous companies who gather and keep confidential information as part of their day-to-day operations (which is most), recent occurrences in the country of data breaches, computer system thefts, negligent disposal, and basic human error have actually once again brought internal security concerns of information disposal policies to the forefront.”

Through federal legislation such as the Medical insurance Portability and Responsibility Act (HIPAA), The Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act (HITECH), the Economic Espionage Act (EEA) of 1996, the Gramm-Leach-Billey Act of 1999 (GLB), and the Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA) of 2003 have actually been passed to require businesses to protect their clients and employees personal information from identity theft and its resulting fraud. The requirement to have a high level of caution and a sound, proactive information disposal policy is exactly what puts some teeth into this legislation, according to Brock Bruce, Co-Founder & COO of PROSHRED Security Houston.

Only by developing and implementing strong, useful internal security procedures will companies be able to secure their clients from fraud and insulate themselves from huge liability issues that could put excessive financial constraints on any company.

One element of such a policy is the contractual outsourcing of secure onsite shredding & recycling services to an ISO 9001 & NAID AAA certified information destruction firm such as PROSHRED Security Houston. PROSHRED is able to provide completion of the chain of custody by providing shredding onsite and transporting all material to a secure recycler so all material is turned into something else. And you can even watch it on the closed circuit monitors installed on each truck.

Mobile shredding brings the service to the consumer or business through large trucks with commercial capability shredding machines on board. This method works well for business and home based clients alike. The shredding typically happens on a pre-scheduled basis under this while trucks on one their daily routes.

“PROShred is a “green” business, has a 0% landfill policy, and if it can be recycled, it will be recycled! The recycling is processed at a secure recycling centers ensuring the materials can not be read again, it allows any company a method of good stewardship towards the environment by replenishing post-consumer waste in the manufacture of recycled raw materials”, observes Emily Bruce, Co-founder and CEO of PROSHRED Security Houston.

The three-year old franchise location of PROSHRED Security is proud of its new secure high-volume mobile system, believing that it stands for a brand-new standard in processing speed and volume, saving their customers time and money. Their trucks hold up to 13,000 lbs. of paper, and its big shredder can shred up to 10,000 lbs. of paper per hour which is equal to ten standard size bankers boxes in less than 2 minutes.

The truck, recently seen at a few of Houston’s most well known companies, immediately gets a bin that holds the material of ten basic boxes and disposes it into the shredder. Two truck-mounted video cameras feed pictures of the procedure to an outside closed circuit screen, enabling clients to view everything curbside and providing them the assurance of a task firmly finished.
