Partial Building Collapse in East Windsor Industrial Park

InfoShred officials say no documents have been damaged and they are in operation.

Company officials said despite a partial building collapse in its East Windsor Industrial Park facility early Friday morning, InfoShred  is up and running.

The roof over the company’s records storage facility  at 3 Craftsman Road collapsed around 3:30 a.m., despite 48 hours of attempts to save the facility, officials said.
Infoshred does document destruction and records storage. The roof collapsed over the records’ storage portion of the building, the company said in a statement.

The document destruction portion of the business was unaffected and they continue to service their customers as usual. Trucks went out this morning on their regular schedule and the business expects no interruption in these services.

Efforts to save the building have been on-going since Tuesday. The company has been working with a structural engineer and snow removal was in process.

“We notified all of our clients yesterday when it became clear that the records’ storage portion of the building was threatened by the build-up of ice and snow. They have been tremendously supportive,” InfoShred President Stacey DiPiazza, said in a press release. “We have extensive systems in place to guard the security and safety of those records, including 24 hour monitoring of the area. But this year’s unprecedented weather has posed hazards none of us could have anticipated. We are well aware of the importance of the records entrusted to us. We have already secured another location for those records. Once emergency personnel allow us, we will evacuate them to that location.”

InfoShred is the second commercial building to have a collapse in as many days. A building in Bassdale Plaza suffered a partial roof collapse Thursday morning.

Town officials ordered all three public schools closed Friday so they can be expected for any snow related problems with their roofs. School officials said they have been monitoring the roofs for the past two weeks and stress no problems have been detected as of Thursday.
