Hard drives are erased using the Department of Defense's DoD 5220.22-M standard, or if necessary, hard drives are physically destroyed. We'll do whatever it takes to ensure your company data does not fall into the wrong hands.

Virginians John and Ann Allen and New Yorkers Elisha and Ana Rumsey arrived in the southeastern Michigan Territory in 1824 at a place named Allen's Creek.

The Importance of the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor

The Ann Arbor city is located in Michigan State. It is the seat of government of the Washtenaw County, and also the fifth largest city in Michigan. According to the census of the year 2010, the city has a recorded population of 113, 934. The city is part of the Metropolitan Statistical Area of Ann Arbor, which includes the Washtenaw County. As of 2010, the MSA holds a population of more than 340,000. In addition, Ann Arbor is also involved in the Combined Statistical Area of Detroit- Ann Arbor- Flint Michigan. Geographically, Ann Arbor encompasses the Huron River and lies in the west of Detroit. The North and East sides are adjoined by the Ann Arbor Charter Township, including the hills and valleys in steeper terrain near the Huron River. Due to the dense forest and other natural resources, Ann Arbor earned the nickname “Tree Town”

The flourishing economy of Ann Arbor is heavily influenced by the University of Michigan or the so-called UM. The University of Michigan is defined as the public research university located in the city of Ann Arbor. It is the state’s oldest university, which has two satellite campuses located in Dearborn and Flint. The university was established in 1817 in Detroit, approximately 197 years ago. After 20 years, the university’s central campus was moved to Ann Arbor in 1837. It has more than 584 major buildings, including the College of Engineering and the College of Literature, Science and the Arts or LS&A. The University of Michigan employs more or less 30,000 workers, which include the workers in the medical center, almost accounting half of the total number. Major companies who offer employment, such as General Motors and Visteon, are drawn to the university by its graduates, as well as the research and development of the school.

The University of Michigan is one of the founding members of the original Association of American Universities in the 1900s. It has a total of 6,200 faculty members, in which 73 were already members of the United States National Academies, which is a scientific national organization with high-caliber members, such as engineers, health professionals, and scientists. The university also handles one of the largest collegiate research budgets in the country. The University of Michigan is an important contributor to the medical field, not just in the state of Michigan, but nationwide. Medical research is highly funded annually, and engineering comes in second place.
