As the pioneer of the first high-capacity industrial shredder and leader in document shredding for over 50 years, Allegheny has acquired a wealth of knowledge about all facets of the paper shredding business. We have compiled the essential information our customers will need to ensure a successful start to their document shredding company, and we’re eager to share it!

Two Allegheny Shredders publications you’ll find extremely valuable are: 10 Steps to Establishing a Successful Contract Shredding Service and How to avoid the 5 Most Common Mistakes in Buying Information Destruction Equipment.
