This transaction represents Retrievex’s entry into the Florida market. In addition, Retrievex serves an ever-growing customer base throughout the Boston and Hartford areas, New York metropolitan area, including northern and central New Jersey, New York City and Long Island, NY, Philadelphia and southern New Jersey and Delaware, Northern Virginia and Washington DC, Cincinnati, Ohio, Evansville, Indiana as well as Las Vegas, Omaha and Chicago (http://www.retrievex.com/locations).
Pierce’s entire career has centered on the development and advancement of the information management industry. “We are especially excited about the acquisition of Assured Records Storage as it fulfills a strategic need in establishing a presence in the lucrative Florida market. We’re very pleased and look forward to continue serving Assured’s customers with the same outstanding service they have become accustomed to receiving from Jessica and her team.”
Jessica Locke, owner of Assured Records Storage, stated, “A key consideration in deciding to sell Assured to Retrievex was our belief that, under Peter’s leadership, the high levels of customer service our customers have come to expect from Assured would continue. Further as the Information Management industry has evolved and our customers have expressed an interest in new services, we believe Retrievex is well positioned to provide our customers with an expanded menu of service offerings that Assured was not in a position to offer.”
