Data Killers Recognized for Excellent Service

Data Killers is proud to be selected for the 2013 Maryland Excellence Award by the Small Business Institute for Excellence in Commerce, or SBIEC. Each year the SBIEC surveys small businesses throughout Maryland and evaluates them based on several factors, including but not limited to: financial condition; stability; growth potential; adherence to policies; certifications; business market share; management; existing repeat customers; etc. As part of the industry research and business surveys, various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose Data Killers for this award. This research is part of an exhaustive process that encapsulates a year long immersion in the business climate of Maryland.


In a statement released by the SBIEC, “Data Killers has consistently demonstrated a high regard for upholding business ethics and company values. This recognition by SBIEC marks a significant achievement as an emerging leader within various competitors and is setting benchmarks that the industry should follow.” The SBIEC press release highlights Data Killers’ accomplishment and provides more information on the selection process. Particular emphasis is given to Data Killers for meeting and exceeding industry benchmarks for customer service, compliance, certifications and ethical practices.


In addition to the SBIEC, Data Killers was previously recognized by the Today show for our highly effective media and hard drive shredding. Our company’s hard work, integrity and commitment to preserving the earth and offering environmentally friendly destruction and disposal options is not going unnoticed.


Data Killers has consistently demonstrated a high regard for upholding business ethics and company values, which is displayed in our numerous certifications and compliance standards. We recently obtained R2 and ISO re-certifications, which are the leading standards for the electronics recycling and data destruction industries. These certifications, combined with the SBIEC 2013 Maryland Excellence Award, set a high bar for practices that protect the environment, human health, safety and the security of the recycling and destruction processes.
