Restore Datashred acquires The Shred Centre

Donna Sanderson


As one of the UK’s leading secure data shredding businesses, Restore Datashred is pleased to announce that we have completed on the acquisition of the assets of The Shred Centre, a well-established, family-run shredding company based in the North East of England. 


This represents a further step in Restore Datashred’s strategy for growth and to make our business into the UK’s leading provider of confidential shredding services. 


We’re delighted to say that all current members of The Shred Centre’s team will be integrated into Restore Datashred, along with their local and national customer base and service provision. 


We are focused on providing the best customer service possible and work hard to maintain our Trustpilot ‘Excellent’ rating, in the process proving our commitment to servicing all sizes of organisation with equal professionalism, passion and pride. Part of this commitment is reflected in this integration of a 20-year-old business whose ethos and good business practices fit with our own.


We’re looking forward to working with and innovating for our new customer base, as well as our new colleagues, and fully expect to be able to broaden the scope for compliance and good business management through our scale, breadth of coverage, cutting-edge machinery and experience. 


Managing Director, Duncan Gooding, said:


Restore Datashred is looking forward to welcoming both customers and colleagues of The Shred Centre to our business. Together, as part of a national organisation operating at scale, we commit to delivering you the market-leading services we are known for. 


“This acquisition forms the first of many steps we are taking to build and maintain our position as one of the only truly national confidential shredding providers, delivering services to customers across the UK.”
