85 RX Shreds Paper, Adhesive Labels, and Prescription Bottles 

Company Background

Intimus International Group is headquartered in Marksdorf, Germany, with U.S. operations based in Wabash, IN, and regional offices in eight other countries. The company history dates back to 1956 and the invention of the first office paper shredder. In 1985, Intimus revolutionized the data security market with the invention of cross-cut paper shredding technology. In 1990, they introduced the first industrial shredders as well as an optical media shredder. Today, the data security line of products includes machines designed to meet the destruction and sanitization challenges of magnetic and solid-state media. It includes hard drive crushers and shredders, flash media shredders, and magnetic media degaussers. Most products can be supplied in configurations to meet or exceed National Security Agency destruction requirements for top-secret information. The company’s product portfolio extends far beyond just data security. It includes a full line of business information solutions that include: letter folders, mail inserters, laminating machines, binding machines, paper trimmers/guillotines, and creasing/ perforating machines.
