Trudy:

I began seeing the about two years ago.  They  had a rep on the floor at 
the ARMA Expo in Baltimore and I asked him how/why  they got into the 
business.  He said they got the idea (did not buy  anyone, at least back then) since 
they were in many businesses already to  expand their offerings.

As to assigning title of documents to a  shredding provider I too would be 
opposed in general.
