The History

The River Mill History

River Mill Data Management was founded in July 2001 by John Barwick to provide secure off-site storage services and on-site shredding services. What began with 2 employees, one delivery truck and one shredding truck has grown to 14 employees, 2 delivery trucks and 6 mobile shredding trucks.

We have grown organically and also through acquisitions to expand our footprint.

We now provide secure on-site shredding services to all of central and south Georgia, as well as certain counties in western Alabama and secure off-site storage to the Columbus and LaGrange, GA area as well as the Auburn and Opelika, AL areas.

John Barwick discussed the history and development of River Mill Data Management in an interview by Tom Adams in the late November RIMproReport podcast in 2012. RIMproReport is a weekly podcast that gives great information on successful business practices of members of the Records and Information Management industry. Here is the show:
