AN international data handling business has opened a new state-of-the-art records management centre in Hartlebury.

EDM Group, a leading digital transformation and business services provider, has invested over £1 million in its new Midlands site.

The new site is EDM Group’s third records management centre in the UK, with two other sites located in Essex and West Yorkshire.

The new centre will handle new and existing client records and documents from across the Midlands and nationally.

The primary service provided on site will be records management and associated storage services such as scan on demand.

The new centre has been installed with the very latest technology in heat and fire detection as well as extensive passive fire protection.

The Hartlebury site was officially opened by John Willox, EDM’s Group CEO.

John Willox said: “The opening of the new Hartlebury site is great news for clients and an exciting development for the business. This has released capacity constraints, allowing the records management business to grow, creating an opportunity for us to add to the team over the coming months.

The new centre is strategically located to serve the Midlands and the whole of the UK and has provided us with the space to build an exceptional records management centre that is easily accessed from our UK head office and production facility in Bilston, Wolverhampton.”
