London: 15 June 2006 -- OyezStraker is celebrating the tenth anniversary of its records management service, File and Data Storage (FDS) with a brand new service - File & Data Express. The new service is a low-cost option for customers whose only requirement is box storage or shredding.

FDS managing director Tony Croft explains, ‘Our investment in the newest records management technology has enabled us to work more efficiently and to offer our services at very competitive rates. Customers will be able to purchase boxes and storage space at very low cost. Shredding is also offered at premium rates. We will pick up customers’ boxes from their present location and move them to File & Data's warehouse free of charge, and we are also waiving Perm-Out fees, which are usually charged by records management suppliers when a box is permanently removed from storage.’

In 1996 FDS was set up in a small warehouse in Evesham, Worcestershire. Today, the company headquarters, based in Tewkesbury, is housed in new purpose-built premises and boast over 1.2 million cubic feet of state-of-the-art storage space.

Says Tony Croft, ‘Becoming a part of the OyezStraker Group has enabled File and Data to expand our horizons. It has helped us gain larger contracts and our clients have the assurance that File & Data is supported by the resources of a large and successful group. And although we are growing we are still small enough to care about each individual customers’ needs.’

The addition of Records Management to the offering of stationery and business solutions is seen as a huge benefit by OyezStraker customers. Large multinationals, government organisations, aerospace industries, banks and healthcare providers are just some of the businesses who depend on OyezStraker’s broad range of professional services. The company also has a very strong presence in the legal and professional marketplace and records management is of prime importance to these types of organisations.

Tony Croft says, ‘The last ten years have seen very rapid growth in data and records management as companies realise the benefits of services like ours. As the legal requirements for record retention grow and regulatory authorities apply compliance ever more rigidly, we see even greater demand in future.’

'Being part of the OyezStraker Group means we are able to supply a full range of other services including office furniture, stationery supplies, speech processing and specialised legal forms.’ With the logistical backing and financial investment from the OyezStraker Group, we expect FDS to double annual sales over the next couple of years.'

FDS specialises in providing high-security document and data archiving and retrieval services, disaster recovery facilities and confidential waste destruction for its business partners. The company’s 40-foot high warehousing requires semi-automatic picking machines to retrieve stored records while a dedicated fleet of company vehicles deliver and collect records in boxes or files and back up tapes (housed in a gas protected vault), all over the UK.

Clients are advised of legal retention periods and offered hard copy storage, scanning to hard drive or CD, confidential destruction and recycling. The company also offers on and off site cost reduction analysis and consultancy.
