Governor, Chamber announce Mimeo HQ move to Memphis

Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and the Greater Memphis Chamber announced Monday that Mimeo.com's headquarters will relocate to Memphis.

MBJ first reported the nature of the announcement the morning of Monday, Nov. 19, based on conversations with people familiar with the matter.

The announcement represents an economic development victory for the city at a time when officials have been focused on how to improve the region's recruitment and retainment efforts. It also shows how Memphis' status as a distribution hub has helped attract other types of jobs.

Mimeo is a pioneer in on-demand digital printing, allowing businesses to print and deliver documents overnight. In May, it received a 15-year expansion PILOT (payment-in-lieu-of-taxes) from EDGE (the Economic Development Growth Engine for Memphis & Shelby County). As part of the PILOT, the company agreed to relocate its headquarters to Memphis in exchange for $2.5 million in tax breaks.

Memphis made the 2019 places to go list for Frommer’s after Nashville made the 2017 list. It is good to see another Tennessee city get the travel spotlight besides just Nashville and Chattanooga!

Ag company Indigo is bringing up to 900 jobs to downtown Memphis, so says the Commercial Appeal.

Somebody needs to recruit International Paper to relocate and maybe Memphis will see some new skyscraper action downtown.

A longtime fantasy of mine would be to tear down Clark Tower on Poplar (ugly building in my opinion and a tower that size does not belong in East Memphis) and build a new one right in the center of downtown.

Some other good news for the Mid South Area. Memphis has added a lot of new jobs recently which is definitely a positive for the area. Although there is still much work to be done I think that this report shows that Memphis has some momentum in the right direction. The whole state of Tennessee benefits when Nashville and Memphis both grow.
