Growing Digital & Print Production Company Expands in Memphis with 300 New Jobs
After many months of discussion and planning, print and digital production company Mimeo announced today that the company has selected Memphis to expand their sales force and production operations, creating 300 new jobs.
In a press conference held in Downtown Memphis this afternoon, Chamber Board Chairman Richard W. Smith, Governor Bill Haslam, TNECD Commissioner Bob Rolfe, representatives from EDGE, Congressman David Kustoff, City of Memphis COO Doug McGowan, and Shelby County Mayor Lee Harris joined Mimeo CEO John Delbridge to support the company in their latest expansion.
Mimeo’s location in Memphis (near Memphis International Airport and Lamar Avenue) has allowed the company to thrive, fueled in part by the city’s strength as a national distribution center and vicinity to the FedEx World Hub. These assets allow Mimeo to provide customers and partners around the world with high-speed shipping times.
“The best decision we made was to build our central [US] location in Memphis,” said Mimeo CEO and founding team member John Delbridge. “We could take orders at 10 p.m., manufacture them and thanks to partners like FedEx, have them delivered by the next morning.”
The Memphis location serves as the company’s U.S. headquarters, working alongside facilities in Germany and the U.K. The company’s selection of Memphis for its expansion further contributes to our city’s momentum, powered by passionate citizens and innovative business leaders.
“We are excited to recruit hundreds of new ‘Mimiacs’ across all levels to our Memphis headquarters,” Delbridge said. “Memphis has been part of our story from startup to global enterprise and remains core to supporting our growing customer base.”
“This reinforces what we’ve been saying as a community — Memphis is a great place to do business,” said Chamber Board Chairman Richard W. Smith, President & CEO of FedEx Trade Networks. “Our time is now.”
The rapidly expanding tech company will be looking to expand its sales force, customer success, engineering and technology teams. Recruiting that high level talent in and to Memphis will be their primary goal moving forward. Check out Mimeo’s career page for a list of current job openings.
