» About Us

We live and love data privacy.

Data has long been a part of our everyday professional and personal life. However, more and more digitization means that living with data is now more complex – precisely because of the need for consistent data protection.

For decades, REISSWOLF has been involved in the professional handing of data of all kinds – setting its own high standards and was even involved in the development of DIN standards. As a result, we became successful in the secure data destruction and document shredding throughout Europe, one of the top archiving companies in Europe and now we digitize around 60 million pages in various formats every year.


None of this would have been possible without a central value:

Trust is a characteristic of relationships that can neither be bought nor protected by contracts. We believe that collaboration is always built on long-term partnerships. The success of this is born out by the fact that many of our customers, employees and even service providers have already been working together successfully for decades. We believe that this is the best form of data protection.

The data protection authority for companies all over Europe – whether analogue or digital.

REISSWOLF was founded over 30 years ago in Hamburg. We are proud to have secure data destruction and document shredding as our core purpose. We are also very successful in the fields of digitization and archiving.
