HIR Changes Name to Meet Growing Need

Safe Shield Develops Customized Compliance Software

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (Oct. 11, 2010) - Product growth and market expansion led HIR Companies, LLC to change its name this month to Safe Shield LLC. Safe Shield is developing new compliance technologies that it will unveil later this year.

“While the HIR name has served us well, our clients’ needs are changing and so are we,” said Kent Gustafson, CEO of HIR/Safe Shield. “Under the Safe Shield name, customers will receive the security and trusted advisor services they’ve come to expect from HIR, plus advanced technology and customizations to meet their diverse needs.”
A need for a more customizable compliance solution led Gustafson to develop a new tool for business clients. Safe Shield will launch the Internet-based technology later this year. “This transition, as well as the name change will be seamless for our customers, with no business interruptions, and it means we’ll be able to provide them even better services,” Gustafson said.

The past 18 months have brought significant business growth to HIR, creating an increased need to expand business compliance services to new markets. “More businesses are seeing a need for our compliance services for sustainability and future success,” Gustafson said. “We’ve seen considerable growth in revenue over the past year as we welcome new customers and take pride in our almost perfect retention record.”

HIR, based in Sauk Centre, provides corporate record compliance and corporate document management services to small and medium sized businesses in Minnesota. The company’s mission is to help business owners maintain corporate compliance status. It identifies and implements best practices for documenting the activities of the business and provides secure electronic record retention and backup for required business records and documents.
