Columbus, OH – Merrill Corporation, a global provider of technology-enabled services for corporate markets, announced today that it has extended its lease and will make an $800,000 capital investment in its Grove City facility. This decision ensures Merrill Corporation and its 185 employees will remain in the Columbus Region for the foreseeable future.
Merrill executives considered relocation when the lease expired, but remained committed to the current location after an evaluation of potential sites.
“We are looking forward to a continued and improved stay in our Grove City facility,” said Patrick Foley, SVP Operations, Merrill. “The Columbus Region has been a great place to grow our business. By renewing our lease and making this significant investment, we can continue that growth.”
Merrill’s 200,000-square-foot Grove City facility uses a diversified platform of Xerox and Océ digital print equipment to provide an inventory management process that reduces inventory obsolescence. The company’s $800,000 investment will include internal and external improvements, HVAC replacement, electrical upgrades and a backup generator.
“Merrill Corporation is a valued business in our community,” said Grove City Mayor Richard L. “Ike” Stage. “Not only does the company’s decision to stay in Grove City mean continued jobs for our citizens, it is further testimony that Grove City and the Columbus Region are great places to do business.”
