Merrill Expands International FDS Unit
ST. PAUL, MN—Merrill Corp. announced that its Financial Document Services (FDS) business has opened an office in Frankfurt, Germany. The full-service operation center, together with centers in London and Paris, further strengthens and diversifies Merrill's international operations.
"We continue to be asked by customers in other European markets when we will open facilities in their cities," states Mike James, Merrill's president of Financial Document Services. "We decided Frankfurt was our next important commitment as we grow our presence on the continent."
The new office is open 24/7 to support the quick turnaround, document drafting and print production requirements of clients conducting business in Germany and around the world. The office was opened to accommodate global transactions and cross-continental financing.
By incorporating leading-edge technology, Merrill enables clients to manage document draft and review processes anywhere on the globe. The center also has on-site document typesetting capability in German.
"The Frankfurt office gives us a strong presence in the important and emerging German market," says Robert Chepak, president of Merrill's international operations. "We are now well-positioned to advance our growth in a rapidly expanding region, which is a huge opportunity for us and our customers. We have set a new standard for service and performance in London and Paris, and intend to do the same in Frankfurt."
