Great White was established in 2010 in response to the undeniable need to re-draw the shredding / recycling map.

Our History

Great White began life from a rented unit. Today it operates from its own 25,000sq ft purpose built shredding facility in Summerhill, Co. Meath.


David Walsh is MD of Great White and started the company in 2010. Previously, David was MD of a similar shredding company (Datastroy) that was successfully sold in 2007.


Since 2010 Great White has grown rapidly through organic growth based on superior price and superior service.


Today Great White is recognised as the leading Irish paper shredding company and is cementing its position by readily adapting to new challenges presented by GDPR, Brexit and now COVID-19.


The company has been a leader not only in scale but in the modernisation of the industry – pioneering Free Shredding.
