Minority-Owned Carolina Records & Information Management, LLC Secures Schedule 36

Derived from a logistics company named A-1 Transfer & Storage owned by the same family, Carolina Records & Information Management,LLC began in 1999 with mind to be one of the finest document destruction and storage firms in the region. Successfully obtaining a National Association of Information Destruction (NAID) AAA-certification and possessing one of the largest storage vaults in the area, CRIM was looking toward getting more and more involved with the DoD -- knowing the potential benefits it could afford to the government.
"We tried getting involved with a local Air Force base -- a lot of projects we were more than capable of performing were occurring there," said Trey Hoey, account manager at CRIM. "There were a few that seemed promising, but there was another firm in the area on GSA, and we were getting beat. The government is obviously all about regulation; we needed to lined up."
And lined up they got. Beginning the process a little over a year ago -- getting through all the documentation -- Carolina Records & Information Management, LLC can now claim their Federal Supply Schedule: GS-03F-020DA. "It certainly wasn't easy," continued Hoey. "A lot of red tape, but we were able to get great help from a firm not too far from us called Government Marketplace, LLC. They certainly helped with the process, making it a lot easier. It's a great thing, though; we went through this process so that the government can more efficiently and effectively work with us. As a small, family-owned business, we strive to ensure the customer is always right, and if this is where the government -- our new customer -- needs us to be, we will be there."
CRIM specializes in providing secure offsite and on site document destruction -- all up to the required standards of even some of the most rigid of regulations. Along with its documentation destruction services, it also provides secure and confidential offsite document and file storage, as well as data vault services which includes back up media storage and tape rotation services. "We're hoping to give a one-stop shop solution for agencies with the document needs, helping with their more broad and large projects with general ease."
