“By adding 13 new markets to the 47 we already serve, we are now in a position to meet more of our clients’ needs in all of the cities in which they do business.”

– Rob Alston, CEO

Iron Mountain’s acquisition of Recall was finalized on May 1, 2016, but there was one small problem: Iron Mountain had gotten too big. Since the companies represent two of the nation’s largest document management service providers, the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Antitrust Division identified 15 metropolitan areas where Iron Mountain was required to divest Recall’s document management operations.


Is The Industry’s Largest Provider Getting Too Big?

There were once three document management companies that covered the majority of the United States’ market. Now there are two – and Access is the ONLY one that is still privately held. What happened?

The other two vendors recently merged and created a combined company that has grown too large. In fact, the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) Antitrust Division identified 15 geographies where the acquired document management operations had to be divested due to the company’s increased size.

This brings to mind one big problem for businesses across the U.S.: Can a company that large still provide the personal service you deserve?
