RML Shredding is a division of Rocky Mountain Logistics (RML), which was started right here in Louisville. President Jon Boatright is originally from Colorado but has become a permanent resident of Kentucky since he moved here 15 years ago. Co-owner/CFO Gary Remmers, a lifelong resident of Louisville, teamed up with Jon in 2001 and they started a small shredding operation under a different name that serviced a local hospital’s shredding needs. Since 2001, Jon has been part owner in a local medical transportation company that worked in conjunction with the shredding operation for pickups and deliveries. Rocky Mountain Logistics was incorporated in 2005 when Gary partnered with Jon. At that time the shredding operations and medical transportation operations merged and became one company.
Since incorporation, RML has grown substantially within its shredding division. From hospitals to CPA firms, there is no business too large or too small for us to handle. Our on-site mobile service utilizes a new state-of-the art Shred-Tech truck to service accounts requiring on-site service. Our off-site facility, which houses a state-of-the-art industrial shredder, can handle any size job. We recently shredded 20,000 file boxes for a local document storage company. Our shredding business is complemented by our transportation business where we can utilize our semi-trucks for these types of large jobs.
Both Jon and Gary are avid outdoorsmen and the name Rocky Mountain Logistics was derived based on that outdoor theme. We are proud to have started this business in the Kentuckiana area and have grown our company to a workforce of 30 employees. We strongly believe in supporting the local community and make every effort to use local vendors for all of our purchases and services.
RML Shredding adheres strictly to all HIPAA and GLBA regulations. Our employees have complete background checks and are certified to professionally dispose of your sensitive documents.
