Ink Labs, a company that markets modern printing kiosk to colleges, announced Wednesday that it is moving its headquarters from Silicon Valley to Lincoln.
The announcement was made at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, with company officials, Gov. Pete Ricketts and economic development officials on hand.
The company employs 25, but CEO Jonathan Manzi said he expects to add more employees over the next year.
The company’s main product is the Ink Smart Station, which allows users to print, copy, scan or fax at one location via a wide range of devices. The station was piloted at UNL last fall and has since expanded to 12 more institutions.
Manzi said more locations are “in the pipeline,” which will lead to needing more workers.
“We expect to have rapid growth,” he said.
Feeding that growth will be $6 million in funding from investors, which the company also announced Wednesday.
The company will temporarily be located in the Fuse Coworking building at 151 N. Eighth St., until the company’s office space is prepared, Manzi said.
