Sep 29, 2008 (12:09 PM EDT)


DEARBORN, Mich., Sept. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Information Systems Resources (ISR), a minority-owned IT sales, service, security and recycling company, has been named to Inc. Magazine's 2008 list of the 5,000 fastest-growing private companies in the United States. This is ISR's first time on the coveted list.

ISR handles the complete computer lifecycle for large companies, managing purchasing, installation, service and storage, and also manages secure disposal and environmentally friendly disposal and recycling of companies' old computers. ISR specializes in servicing companies with sophisticated security and privacy concerns, such as health care, insurance, financial and government industries.

"We are the cradle-to-grave solution for companies' IT needs," says Luther Elliott, company founder and CEO. "And our 55 percent growth shows that our clients trust us to handle their most confidential and sensitive information concerns."

In recent years, Elliott has made a particular effort to focus on his clients' security requirements, and in green recycling. As companies replaced their computers with newer models, Elliott foresaw the need to dispose of the old assets. Then, as privacy and security issues became paramount with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), he focused on secure information destruction.

Now, the disposal, recycling and remarketing of information assets comprises the majority of the business. In fact, ISR is now offering circuit-board and tape shredding, using specialized equipment.

Elliot launched ISR in 1989 as a home-based business. Now nearly 20 years later, ISR has 50 employees, $7.6 million in revenue, and has just moved into a state-of-the-art 110,000 square-foot headquarters in Dearborn. The new headquarters provides the environment and capacity needed for storing, staging and recycling its clients' materials.

Information Systems Resources (ISR) offers specialized computer solutions to medium-sized and Fortune 1000 companies. It provides customized, integrated IT solutions encompassing each phase of a computer's life cycle. The company offers a full range of IT professional services and is an authorized reseller for IT hardware/software. ISR was established in 1989 and is a certified Minority Business Enterprise (MBE).
