Shredding, Shredding, Everywhere

Data Killers is now nationwide with three new locations in Chicago, Sacramento and Dallas in addition to the Washington D.C. headquarters.   Each location has full mobile shredding services which can shred a variety of items including hard drives, tapes, products, equipment and military gear.

“Our new mobile shredding trucks each contain powerful four-shaft shredders with several screen sizes to control the shred size.  We can cut any object into miniscule pieces because we have large hoppers which will fit any type of equipment. This shredding system will allow us to service many industries,” said Rodney Young, Operations Manager of Data Killers.

“The demand of our customers required us to expand,” said Data Killers President, Elizabeth Wilmot. “We have seen tremendous growth in data and product destruction.   The other hard drive shredding companies can only shred into strips. Unfortunately data can be retrieved relatively easily from strips of hard drives. We can completely grind hard drives down to granules right at someone’s site while they watch.”

“The power demands of a large shredder with screens have not been easy to fill in a mobile setting which is why no one else is doing this like we are.  Our fabricators were able to use new electrical technology to power these shredders right from our trucks.  We provide real shredding services right at the customer’s location,” added Young. “In addition to our shredding services, we offer degaussing and demil services.”

Started from a kitchen table, Data Killers has grown to become a nationwide leader in data, product and equipment destruction.  Turtle Wings / Data Killers is WBENC; HUBZone; and ISO certified.
