3GS, LLC, a company formed by two industry veterans, Mike West and Mike Boehringer, has announced its intention to create the largest independent shredding company in the U.S. West is the CEO and founding partner of NorthShore Capital Advisors, and Boehringer is the former principal at EZshred, an industry software developer. Prior to that, Boehringer managed his family’s secure destruction service, Shredding Solutions, based in the Cleveland area for many years. According to the company’s release, Boehringer will serve as the company’s CEO and will oversee the strategic acquisitions and their integration.

"After almost a decade of public company led transactions in the shredding industry, we feel now is the time for a secondary consolidation given the bullish environment," said Mike West. "Our years of experience tell us that the timing is right given the number of companies in the document shredding market. This offered a unique opportunity to bring together outstanding industry talent to aid this business venture."

"Targeted mergers or acquisitions are essential if a company is to outgrow the competition, organic growth alone is not the route to sustained growth," said Mike Boehringer. "Additionally, no one in the industry is poised to take advantage of this better than 3GS. This is a very exciting time for the 3GS team and our future companies."
