OAKVILLE—Information security company Shred-it has acquired Super Shred Document Destruction, as of September 11. Super Shred operated an onsite document destruction service operating mainly in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) with operations also in Cambridge and Ottawa. Both organizations provide mobile onsite document destruction.

The acquisition applies to all of Super Shred’s operations, the company said. Those operations will continue from its existing location, near Toronto Pearson Airport, and will represent Shred-it’s third branch in the GTA.

“This acquisition supports our corporate growth strategy, and will significantly enhance our presence and density in key Canadian markets including the GTA, Cambridge and Ottawa,” said Shred-it president and CEO Vince De Palma.

Shred-it and Super Shred will work together to ensure a seamless transition process. Shred-it has completed 18 acquisitions over the last two years.
