Shred North, a Barrie, Ontario, Canada-based document destruction firm, has been named Best New Business in Barrie by the Greater Barrie Chamber of Commerce.

The company was recognized at the annual Barrie Business Awards Gala. The event, in its 10th year, recognizes business excellence in the Barrie area and is organized by the Greater Barrie Chamber of Commerce in partnership with OLG and Powerstream Inc.

Shred North began operations in early 2012, offering paper shredding, hard drive destruction and document storage services to the community.

“We’re very honored to be recognized by our peers,” says Ryan Giffen, CEO of Shred North. “We’re proud not only to work in Barrie but to live here as well. Providing businesses and residents with a local alternative for their document destruction needs is what we are all about.”

According to Shred North, it is the first shredding company in Barrie to be granted membership into the National Association of Information Destruction (NAID), the Phoenix-based trade association that represents the information destruction industry.
