In 1988, Greg Brophy’s passion for business and desire to create a highly successful enterprise led him to found Shred-it, one of the world’s leading on site document destruction companies. In 1993, Mr. Brophy expanded his business and launched a manufacturing division, now referred to as Securit Manufacturing Solutions (SMS).
