Miller-Valentine Group Announces Opening
of New Iron Mountain Facility
Columbia, S.C. (May 20, 2010)-- Miller-Valentine has completed upfitting a 45,000 square-foot document storage and imaging facility in Greer, S.C. for longstanding client Iron Mountain, the information management company. Just opened in April, the new facility will hold hardcopy files for state and Georgia organizations and features climate-controlled storage for more important documents as well as an imaging room for creating electronic copies of paper records. .
"Miller-Valentine provides a diverse portfolio of construction services. The numerous upfit projects that we have completed for Iron Mountain are a perfect example of the renovation and tenant improvement services that we provide to help our clients serve their customers. Our vast experience in delivering this service has given us the expertise of getting the work done without interruption of our clients' day-to-day business operations," said Kurt Eyring, vice president of Miller-Valentine Group.
Located off of Interstate 85, just south of Greer, the document storage and scanning facility is the newest of nine such facilities that Iron Mountain operates across the state. The Greer facility, which started filling with records last month, will house records from organizations located primarily in the Northwest portion of the state as well as Northeast Georgia.
The building's document-scanning room is becoming a more common feature in Iron Mountain facilities across the world as customers want quicker access to paper documents and not just secure storage. Since 2002, Iron Mountain has opened more than 200 of these scanning operations, which collectively image more than 50 million pages a month.
Iron Mountain is an information management company that helps more than 140,000 organizations around the world protect and manage their physical and digital data. Founded in 1951, the company manages billions of information assets, including business records, electronic files, medical data, emails and more.
Miller-Valentine Group and Iron Mountain began their relationship more than 15 years ago and have now partnered in more than 25 projects throughout the Southeast and Midwest. Some of their recent expansions have included locations in the Greenville/Spartanburg, Florence, Columbia and Asheville markets.
