The state of Alabama has awarded a statewide contract to handle all the document destruction services at its state agencies to Lambert Record Center, a records management company based in Florence, Ala.
According to Rhett Lambert, president of Lambert Record Center, the statewide contract will run for 36 months and includes options for two 12-month extensions. Under the contract, Lambert will provide secure document shredding of confidential materials for all Alabama state agencies and will cover all 38 counties in the state.
“With businesses and government agencies collecting and having access to personal information in increasing droves, and the rates of fraud and identity theft increasing, having Lambert Record Center, an AAA rated NAID- (National Association for Information Destruction-) compliant record center, protecting and eliminating that information will provide an added level of protection when compared to most similar companies,” Lambert says.
“It’s great that the contract went to a local family business that has been supporting our state and community for more than 20 years,” Lambert adds.
Lambert Record Center, which has been in business for 20 years, has three Alabama locations: Florence, Huntsville and a newly opened facility in Birmingham.
