Spokane firm DeVries buys Green Shred LLC, a Pasco mobile document shredder

Spokane-based DeVries Business Services has bought the assets of Green Shred LLC, a mobile document destruction company based in Pasco.

Company President Pat DeVries didn't disclose terms of the deal. He said the deal included the purchase of one shred truck, which will now operate out of Spokane, as well as nearly 100 customers in central Washington and northeast Oregon.

The acquisition brings the number of DeVries' shred trucks to four. It also marks the firm's entry into the northeast Oregon market.  

DeVries says it was becoming more difficult for Green Shred to retain clients because the company offered only mobile destruction. “Clients are requiring more RIM (records and information management) services,” he said.  “We offer a great service profile and we offer more services.”
