Office Depot, Inc., chose Boca Raton, FL, for its global headquarters.
Office Depot is an office equipment and products retailer that was formed by the Nov. 5, 2013 merger of Office Depot and OfficeMax. OfficeMax corporate headquarters were located in Naperville, IL and Office Depot's in Boca Raton, FL.
“Selecting the headquarters location is a critical step toward integrating our two companies,” said Roland Smith, chairman and CEO, Office Depot, Inc.
The company will remain in its current 625,000-square-foot corporate campus at 6600 N. Military Trail in Boca Raton, where it has ample space to accommodate associates who will relocate from Illinois.
“With the location of our headquarters now decided, we will quickly move forward to build a world class leadership team and organization focused on exceeding the expectations of consumers and businesses, becoming a more appealing partner to our vendors, and driving value for our shareholders,” Smith said. “To do that, we will select the best talent available from both locations.”
Office Depot, Inc. will maintain a presence in Naperville throughout the transition.
