Welcome to Archive & Document Scanning

Established in 2009 and operating throughout England and Wales, Archive and Document Scanning Ltd provide a range of document management solutions to all types and sizes of businesses and organisations across the private, public and charity sectors.

Specialising in both secure ‘on or off site’ document scanning and document shredding, we provide professional advice based on each individual customer’s unique requirements, making sure they are completely comfortable that their archiving and scanning requirements are being fully met before any contract begins.

With regional offices in London, the South East and South West, we are able to provide the local support and service our customers expect, particularly when dealing with documents containing sensitive material. 

We use the very latest Kodak Alaris Capture© software to scan documents, which we can then output into a variety of file format of the customers choice.
