North Carolina-Based Automated Shredding Adds First High-Security Micro Shredding Vehicle to Its Fleet

Carolinas based company to offer higher level of security with new mobile document shredding vehicle.

Charlotte, NC, February 08, 2012 --( Automated Shredding has recently added the first ultra-high security, micro-shredding vehicle to its mobile truck fleet in the Carolinas. This environmentally - friendly mobile document shredding vehicle called the MDX-1 produces incredibly small shredding for maximum data destruction and is the first of its kind in the industry.

The patent-pending MDX-1, designed and manufactured by Shred-Tech, achieves up to 6,500 lbs/hr of throughput. In high-security mode, it produces incredibly small shred sizes (DIN Level 3) while easily maintaining a throughput of up to 2,500lbs/hr.

Meeting the EPA’s strict new emissions standards, the environmentally-conscious MDX-1 operates on Ultra Low Sulfur Diesel or B5 diesel. Additionally, a Predictive Idle feature improves fuel savings and reduces shredder and engine hours by sensing the shredder loads and shutting down the system once it has finished shredding.

“There is nothing else on the market that can rival the MDX-1 mobile shredding truck,” said Bob Korkos, co-owner and operating manager of Automated Shredding. “We are the first shredding company in North and South Carolina to offer mobile micro-shredding for maximum security data destruction. The MDX-1 will allow Automated Shredding to provide mobile data destruction services to customers that have higher standards on shredding output size, such as financial institutions, confidential documents by various government agencies including the Department of Defense, and medical professional services.

Shred-Tech, based out of Ontario, Canada is the manufacturer and patent-holder for MDX-1. In November 2011, Shred-Tech introduced the MDX-1 dual-mode shred truck to the European market at the NAID-Europe/PRISM Conference in London. The European market has long been ahead of the U.S. in requiring higher shredding standards in the document destruction industry. “The MDX-1 will help us reach a new level of technology and a higher standard not yet required here in the U.S.,” states Korkos.

Automated Shredding and Shred-Tech have had a decade-long relationship and Mark McKenna of Shred-Tech recalls when Korkos began his first shredding operation back in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 2002. “Bob has always done a great job at building loyal clientele thanks to a high value on customer service and investment in the latest industry technology,” says McKenna. “So it was a natural progression for him to acquire one of the Shred-Tech’s cutting edge MDX-1 shredding vehicles to continue to take Automated Shredding to the next level.”

“We always want to be one step ahead in providing our customers the best possible security and service,” explains Korkos.
