OUR GOAL: To offer secure information destruction and consulting solutions to Humboldt County businesses and individuals while keeping our focus on convenience and exceptional customer service. We strive to make our services as specific to the needs of each individual customer as possible.
Shred Aware was founded in 2009 when third-generation Humboldt native Kyle Visser recognized the need for a secure, local document destruction company in our community. He opened his business, originally called Shred Tec, in a small Arcata warehouse and began shredding documents for local businesses and individuals.
As more companies began to trust and utilize our services we quickly outgrew this first warehouse and shredding equipment. So Kyle and his wife Natalie moved operations to a building they purchased in Eureka in 2013. Now, the company is housed in a much larger warehouse and office facility on the corner of 3rd and X streets -- it’s better suited for the scale of information destruction required to service our community’s needs. Read more about the services we offer.
We adopted a new direction in September 2014 when we changed our name to Shred Aware and look forward to a bright future servicing the information destruction and protection needs of Humboldt County.
