Case study - Matthews Confidential Shredding

Matthews Confidential Shredding is a family owned & run business based in Penllergaer, Swansea. We are a small company employing 4 people that offer Security and Peace of Mind to many organisations across South Wales. In simple terms, we collect Confidential Waste from your premises and destroy it, observing BS EN 15713:2009 protocols, preventing compromise of your confidential data.

Matthews Confidential Shredding was formed in 1997 following a conversation with an Accountants about the most secure way to destroy their Confidential Archive, from this simple start Matthews purchased a large shredder and committed to providing a service that allowed for a secure and cost-effective solution to the destruction of waste confidential paper.

We have identified several opportunities through the Sell2Wales website and have managed to offer 3rd party support to various larger organisations offering single-point contracts to clients who in turn are looking for overreacting contract agreements to service “Waste Contracts”, of which shredding is a small but, important, part. 

Our single biggest challenge remains to be visible in an on-line market where our competitors are Multi-National organisations with large marketing budgets. We work hard to maintain an online presence so that potential customers across South Wales are aware that there is a cost-effective alternative that means the money they spend remains in South Wales.

Sell2Wales offers all the registered organisations the chance to support the local economy, a chance to continually put the money they spend back into the Welsh economy. With today’s challenging economic environment and uncertain future, choosing Sell2Wales provides Wales with a firm financial footing to move forward.

To reap the benefits of Sell2Wales, ensure that your profile is up-to-date and relevant and that you check weekly for new contract opportunities.
