TFE, Iron Mountain, and Carlsbad community stakeholders hold a cookout to celebrate a milestone of 10 million scanned images of records for the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP) on May 16, 2018. 

Since contract award in 2014, TFE has invested over $4M in equipment and facilities to ensure the Carlsbad operations maintain the highest product quality while providing competitive pricing similar to other commercial companies throughout the country. Since completion of the U.S. National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) records center 12 months ago and the NARA approval of this state of the art facility in the Fall 2017, TFE and Iron Mountain have more than doubled the number of customers utilizing the center.

TFE and subcontractor Iron Mountain have held the WIPP Records Services contract for NWP in Carlsbad, NM, since 2014. In 2018, the project reached a milestone of 10 million scanned images.

“We are proud of the talented and dedicated staff in Carlsbad,” said Doug Heal, President of TFE.

TFE's accomplishment garnered recognition from our client NWP and from the broader Carlsbad community:

“TFE and Iron Mountain have promised us a significant investment in this community, and they are delivering on that promise,” Carlsbad Mayor Dale Janway said. “Their state-of-the-art facility makes their Carlsbad operation the ideal location for processing records for the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant and many other businesses. We look forward to continued growth.”

“TFE and Iron Mountain have been excellent partners to work with,” said Bruce Covert, NWP President and Project Manager, whose company oversees the WIPP Records Contract. “It’s exciting to see the progress these two companies have made since their new facility opened last year. We look forward to doing great things together.”

“When a community supports local business, we are helping a Mom & Dad pay a mortgage, get dance lessons, buy football gear or pay a college tuition,” said Eddy County Commissioner and CDOD President Susan Crockett. “Businesses like TFE are Carlsbad's shareholders who support our community. We believe in and support all they do and appreciate TFE and Iron Mountain's partnership with WIPP going towards the future.”
