iNEMI Opens New Headquarters in North Carolina


Reading time ( words)

The International Electronics Manufacturing Initiative (iNEMI), a worldwide industry-led consortium, today announced it has relocated its headquarters office from Herndon, Virginia, to Morrisville, North Carolina. 

iNEMI started exploring options for a new headquarters location earlier this year because the Herndon office building where iNEMI had been headquartered since 1996 was put up for sale with all leases terminating at the end of 2018. After an extensive review, the search committee decided that the Greater Raleigh/Research Triangle Park area would be the most advantageous location for iNEMI.

“We took this opportunity to explore a number of locations, assessing several factors, such as proximity to members and academic research centers, access to transportation, leasing costs and more,” said Marc Benowitz, iNEMI CEO.  “In the end, the Greater Raleigh/Research Triangle Park area topped the list in terms of meeting our needs. We are now officially open in our new headquarters location and are looking forward to becoming a part of the research community in this dynamic and growing area.”

The iNEMI office is located at:
3000 RDU Center Drive, Suite 220
Morrisville, NC 27560 USA
+1 984.333.0820
infohelp@inemi.org

This office serves as the headquarters for the corporate membership-based iNEMI, which is an R&D consortium comprised of leading electronics manufacturing companies and related organizations.  The initial staff located in the North Carolina office are Edward (Ed) Jollie, Director of Business Administration and Operations, and Kristin Christensen, Office Administrator.
