A Proven Track Record of Business Records Management
Williams Data Management is celebrating 100 years in the Southern California business community. Our storied history during that time is highlighted by the adaptability of the company to evolve and innovate. Here is a brief history:
Williams Data Management got its start in 1922 when John J. Williams founded Williams Transfer and Storage Company. The company grew during the 1930’s and 40’s as it acquired more transportation and shipping contracts. John J. Williams’ brother, Nat Williams, joined the company as General Manager and in 1944, Herb Williams enlisted in the U.S. Army, and served until 1946, at which time he joined the company. In the 195O’s, the company changed its name to Williams Transportation Company and added truck leasing and fully outsourced transportation services. As a mark of success, scores of companies sold their truck fleets to Williams and leased from them a new fleet and driving staff.
Through the 1960’s and 1970’s, Herb and David Williams acquired more companies, including Quality Transportation and Wynn’s Tire and Rubber Company, and purchased an eight acre/400,000 square foot facility. Williams created several specialized freight and storage operations, and operated one of the largest private fleets in California. By the 1980s, with the company now run by Williams’ grandsons Douglas (our current CEO) and Mark, Williams transitioned to file storage and started digitizing documents.
Now, we work with companies of all types throughout Southern California to create custom, comprehensive business records management plans, including document storage, information management, certified shredding, and business continuity planning. By offering unbeatable customer service, coupled with the promise of security, compliance, and convenience, we’re a trusted partner of businesses all over Los Angeles, Orange County, and the Inland Empire.
