Avena Acquires Established Business

Taking the next plunge forward Avena announces its acquisition of CDDS (Confidential Document and Data Storage) regional based company with over 10 years’ experience in the document destruction industry.


The acquisition follows the strategic plan for growth in 2016 with CDDS being a major step forward in the plan to continue to develop consistent service coverage across the region with a strong foundation of over 1800 clients. CDDS had clear synergy in its business dealings with Avena with an honest, friendly and personal level of services to its clients which Avena will be able to consistently continue to deliver to CDDS clients.  Servicing some of the region’s most recognised organisations within the legal, professional and educational sectors the acquisition of CDDS is a great step forward for Avena. 


Managing Director Ken Crawshaw comments “the acquisition forms part of our 2016 growth strategy to provide consistency and unparalleled speed of service for our clients whilst capturing greater market share as a leading player in the information destruction market.  We know that Avena has now become recognised as the leader in innovation for secure data destruction but it is important that with this recognition we are able to consistently deliver the service that our clients expect from such a recognised company.  To enable us to do this it is important for us that we have the strongest market presence in the core areas which we service and the CDDS acquisition is part of our strategy to help us achieve this quickly complimenting the business’s natural growth from our client referrals and business development team”.
