TFE Reaches Milestone of 10 Million Scanned Images for WIPP

TFE, in conjunction with Iron Mountain and WIPP, continue to help Carlsbad lead the way for industrial growth in the region



    CARLSBAD, NM, May 13, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- TFE and partner Iron Mountain have reached a significant milestone of ten million scanned images of records for the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP).

"We are proud of the talented and dedicated staff in Carlsbad," said Doug Heal, President, TFE, Inc. "Their hard work and commitment, combined with the corporate support from TFE and Iron Mountain, have enabled us to demonstrate why performing this work in Carlsbad is the right answer for our customers locally, regionally, and nationally."

Since contract award in 2014, TFE has invested over $4 million in equipment and facilities to ensure that the Carlsbad operations maintain the highest product quality while providing competitive pricing similar to other commercial companies throughout the country. Since completion of the NARA records center twelve months ago and the NARA approval of this state of the art facility in Fall 2017, TFE and Iron Mountain have more than doubled the number of customers utilizing the center.

"TFE and Iron Mountain have promised us a significant investment in this community, and they are delivering on that promise," Carlsbad Mayor Dale Janway said. "Their state-of-the-art facility makes their Carlsbad operation the ideal location for processing records for the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant and many other businesses. We look forward to continued growth."

Carlsbad continues to strengthen its industrial base. Industries like nuclear, mining, oil and gas, and manufacturing are the backbone of the area's diverse offering.

"TFE and Iron Mountain have been excellent partners to work with," said Bruce Covert, NWP President and Project Manager, whose company oversees the WIPP Records Contract. "It's exciting to see the progress these two companies have made since their new facility opened last year. We look forward to doing great things together."

We believe in and support all they do and appreciate TFE and Iron Mountain's partnership with WIPP going towards the future."
