IntelliShred's history is the story of two men determined to provide something different. IntelliShred is owned and operated by partners Rick Possumato and John Manzi. Rick and John have been business partners for over a decade and friends for over 35 years. They started a document shredding company called MobileShred in 1999. In four short years they built the company into one of the leading paper and product shredding companies in the New Jersey, and Pennsylvania markets. MobileShred was built on a foundation of personal, reliable customer service. Even at it's peak, customers knew that when the rare problem arose, they could always get in touch with John or Rick to make sure it was quickly handled. The success of the company attracted attention in the industry and a large national shredding company acquired MobileShred in 2003. John and Rick stayed on and built the branch into a multi-million dollar operation. The limitations of working for a large company ultimately led to John and Rick leaving the national company. The partners then started IntelliShred with a determination to provide the superior customer service that was the hallmark of their first company. IntelliShred was started with a commitment to use the newest technology to help provide the most secure document shredding available. That commitment has been recognized with AAA Certification by NAID, the independent auditor for information destruction companies. IntelliShred has grown quickly since its start and now provides paper and document shredding to a wide variety of customers in both New Jersey and Pennsylvania. IntelliShred combines a unique combination of the leading-edge technology and superior customer service to provide our clients with the most secure and reliable paper and product shredding services in the market. Our leadership team is committed to personalized customer service that understands the unique needs of each of clients. Our philosophy and history explains how a company can combine the values of a family-owned business with leading edge technology to provide superior customer service.

How Technology Makes Your Document Destruction More Secure
1) On- Site Document Shredding
Our shredding vehicles are state-of-the-art trucks that ensure maximum security. The trucks have built-in paper shredders that allow your documents to be shredded within the truck. We do not have to haul your documents back to a warehouse to shred them – something that all off-site shredding companies have to do. We shred your documents right in our truck, while it is still in your parking lot. You can witness the document destruction process as it happens by viewing the closed circuit video camera mounted outside the shredding truck. Our high-security shear shredders render your documents irrevocably destroyed. Companies that shred in long vertical strips run the risk of reassembly of those documents. Although it is rare and time-consuming, numerous news stories verify that fact that "strip shredded" documents can be reassembled. IntelliShred's "shear-shredded" documents are virtually impossible to reassemble. Off-site shredding companies that have to bring your documents back to a warehouse, hand-sort the collected information, and, invariably open up themselves to countless opportunities for loss of documents, theft, and other breaches in security. With IntelliShred that does not happen. Our technology assures your documents are shredded before they ever leave your property.
2) Uniquely Secure Shredding Containers
Our regularly scheduled paper shredding service provides you with IntelliGard security containers to dispose of your confidential documents. Our containers are different than most paper shredding company's containers. Our IntelliGard containers have a double paper baffle that makes it virtually impossible to remove any paper once it is disposed of. Other containers can be surprisingly easy to tamper with and remove documents from – ours are virtually impossible to tamper with.
3) Computerized Usage Tracking
Our regularly scheduled paper shredding service offers an important technological advance that few, if any competitive companies offer. We monitor the amount of paper you dispose of in your shredding container with our IntelliTrack PDAs. Before we empty your container into our shredding truck, we use this hand- held scanner to record the paper level in the container. We print you a usage receipt at the time of service and the scanner data is downloaded into our computer system at the office to track your usage over time. We can monitor your overall usage and based on that information we are often able to reduce our price – frequently by as much as 15% - if there is lower than expected paper volume in your business.
Technology in the paper shredding industry means peace of mind, and the opportunity for lower costs. At IntelliShred our leadership team has a history of using leading edge technology to provide you with both. This philosophy is at the core of the company.
