May 2, 2006 Westmont IL, - SHRED-IT INC The Document Destruction Company announced today that is has officially changed its name to Citadel Information Management. Ownership and management remain unchanged.

Vice President and Co-owner Donna Cooper states that "Citadel, the fortress of records security our clients have been waiting for, is finally here! This exciting opportunity allows us to better communicate all that we offer. Our new name now reflects our complete line of services, including records storage and management, digital imaging, AAA NAID Certified document destruction and consulting services".

Commenting on the change, Paul Swenson, President/CEO of Citadel says "the name change will also allow us to put an end to all the confusion created by sharing the name with the Canadian franchise organization. We’re excited about our growth and look forward to many more years in this increasingly important industry".

Citadel also offers national service through its affiliation with other NAID members known as the Citadel Alliance.

The Illinois-based company is not to be confused with the Shred It organization that was founded in Canada. Shred-It Inc (Illinois) was founded in 1985 prior to the Canadian-based firm and controlled the name in that state as a result. It is Shred It Inc (Illinois) that has changed its name.
