Paper Processing, and its affiliates, Howard’s Office Products & Shredder Guys have been in business in Colorado for over 45 years. Howard Malask started serving the greater Denver area’s need for office supplies in 1969. In the 1970’s, Howard’s son Allen came to work for him and expanded the company to include service of print, finishing, and destruction equipment. In the mid 1980’s, with big office supply stores cutting their prices, Allen believed that the service side of the company needed to branch out. In 1986, he opened Paper Processing Solutions to work alongside Howard’s Office Products and built a rapport with many companies up and down the Front Range. As Paper Processing Solutions grew, Howard’s Office Products did not; and by the mid 1990’s Paper Processing Solutions became the driving force for the Malask family.
In 2001 Allen hired Victor Watt as a shop hand and he worked his way up through the company. Within 7 years Victor became the shop manager overseeing the service side of the company, and with Allen’s years of experience in sales, and contract work, the company was profitable going into the new millennium.
Allen’s health started to decline and by the middle of 2014 and he and his wife decided it was time for him to retire. With no children, and no heir to the company, Allen decided he would sell Paper Processing Solutions to the only person he knew would continue to provide quality service to his long standing customers, Victor Watt.
On January 1st 2015 Victor took ownership of Paper Processing Solutions and began to downsize and re-brand the company in a new image… and thus Shredder Guys was born. We are under new ownership, but we promise to work off the values and principles started by our founders over 45 years ago. We provide quality service and sales on print finishing/destruction equipment, covering the Front Range and beyond.
Over the years PPS has been a sales and service provider for such customers as Lockheed Martin, Raytheon and Boeing, as well as a number of local municipalities. In 1997 PPS was chosen to provide shredding services and equipment for the Denver Summit of the Eight, the free world’s association on trade and economics. Shredder Guys now represents several nationwide manufacturers providing sales and service in many western states including Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, New Mexico, Arizona and Utah.
