In addition to the new facility, Memnon has also welcomed John Macdonald as its new US director of operations & production. Commenting on his new role, he said: “Memnon has an enviable reputation within the archiving community, and you can see that in the kinds of customers who trust us to look after their content and media. I’m excited to lead such an amazing team here in Bloomington, and I look forward to seeing what new opportunities the facility brings us.”
The new media migration and warehousing facility provides the team with more space, allowing them to improve overall capacity and efficiency across production and operations as well as opening the door for future expansion. The new site is local, just a few miles down the road from the former facility, which means there will be no disruption to the industry-leading resources and talent already in place at Memnon.
Memnon was able to continue operating the Indiana University site alongside the new facility while the move took place, minimizing interruptions to its ongoing operations and ensuring a smooth transition between locations.
