DOCUMENT shredding company PHS Datashred is looking forward to a boom year.

It has invested £200,000 in shredding equipment at its Trafford Park depot to service an increased client base.

The depot will now be able to shred up to three tonnes per hour, an increase in capacity of roughly 4,000 tonnes a year.
