Entrepreneurs Initiate Consolidation of Document Destruction Industry

Knoxville, TN, July 04, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Business entrepreneurs, Mike Boehringer and Mike West, have launched 3GS, LLC, a new business venture to consolidate the document destruction industry. Through acquisitions, the company expects to form the largest independent document destruction company in North America. Boehringer, formerly of EZshred and Shredding Solutions, is CEO of 3GS, LLC, and will oversee the strategic acquisitions and integration of companies. West serves on the 3GS, LLC board of directors, and is managing partner of NorthShore Capital Advisors, a full-service, business advisory firm. For more information on 3GS, LLC, please call (865) 862-4942.

“Targeted mergers or acquisitions are essential if a company is to outgrow the competition. Organic growth alone is not the route to sustained growth,” said Boehringer. “Additionally, no one in the industry is poised to take advantage of this more than 3GS. This is a very exciting time for the 3GS team and our future companies.”

“After almost a decade of public company led transactions in the destruction industry, we feel now is the time for a secondary consolidation given the bullish environment,” said West. “Our years of experience tell us that the timing is right given the number of companies in the document shredding market. This offered a unique opportunity to bring together outstanding industry talent to aid this business venture.”
