RIYADH, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, 23 April 2013: averda, the region's largest provider of environmental solutions, announced, today, the launch of its PROSHRED® onsite confidential document destruction service in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. The PROSHRED® service is a first of its kind in the Kingdom.
PROSHRED® - which is also available in over 30 locations in the United States and the Middle East - offers its customers a fully secure, convenient, cost-effective and environmentally sound, automated document destruction service. Utilizing state-of-the-art processing vehicles, documents deposited in locked consoles, provided for free, are shredded onsite at the customers' premises using a unique touch-less system.
On completion of the process, customers receive a ‘Certificate of Destruction' as well as an annual ‘Treesaver Certificate' certifying the number of trees that had been saved as a result of using the service. The waste materials generated by the process are fully recycled.
“We are excited about the potential for PROSHRED® in this important new market. As the Kingdom's first and only specialized document destruction service we are keen to cater to our customers' needs for a secure shredding solution,” said Camille Kurban, averda KSA Managing Director. “As a company, averda is committed to providing our customers and partners, with a comprehensive range of environmental management services and our decision to launch PROSHRED® in Saudi Arabia is a reflection of that commitment.”
In addition to confidential document shredding, and as part of averda's commitment to the environment and ensuring the security and safety of the community, the PROSHRED® service includes shredding all kinds of expired liquid-free food, credit cards and other plastic cards. The service is also extended to shredding of uniforms, hard disks and any other confidential discarded material.
averda has maintained a presence in Saudi Arabia since 2010, providing a range of environmental solutions to the Central and the Western regions with services to the Eastern region to follow suit imminently. -Ends-
