Ronnie Gilmore, CEO of Gilmore Services, the 57-year-old diversified business services company headquartered in Pensacola, Fla., has been awarded a 35-month contract with two additional 12-month renewal options to provide secure destruction of confidential materials. All state government facilities throughout Alabama’s 28 counties are included in the contract.
Gilmore says, “In times of stiff competition against some of the largest national companies in our industry, this award is just one more affirmation of the exceptional quality of all the services delivered by our fine people.”
He continues, “It’s great to see that all of the work and resources we have put into security measures, monitoring systems and employee selection is being recognized as one of the most security conscious organizations providing services to each citizen and governmental organizations within the state.”
According to the company, one of the key considerations in awarding the contract was because Gilmore Services is one of the few companies operating in the south Alabama area that is certified by the National Association of information Destruction (NAID), Phoenix.
Bob Johnson, NAID CEO, after hearing about the contract award, says he was pleased to see state agencies moving toward more secure practices. “The companies that go through the rigors of our certification process do it at a great deal of expense and time,” he says. “It shows that they really are as concerned for their customers’ information as the customers themselves are. It is one true measure that really differentiates the companies involved in the handling of confidential personal, corporate and government data.”
Gilmore Services’ contract with the state began Dec. 1, 2012.
Gilmore Services offers records storage and management; shredding of confidential materials, including e-scrap; high-speed data imaging; off-site electronic data storage; and information relationship software.
