FedEx Office Expands Presence in the Middle East with Location in Beirut


DALLAS and BEIRUT, Lebanon, September 23, 2008—FedEx Office, an operating company of FedEx Corp. (NYSE: FDX), and Al-Kharafi Group today announced the official opening of the first FedEx Kinko’s location in Beirut. The new center is located in the Sassine Square-Achrafieh business district and will help meet the growing demands of local small and medium businesses (SMBs) and mobile or traveling professionals.

As the only industry brand that offers 24/7 business solutions, the new FedEx Kinko’s location provides a one-stop shop for document solutions and business services, including copying, digital printing, professional finishing, large format printing, signs and graphics creation, Internet access, and computer rentals. In addition, the center offers access to FedEx Express international shipping services and is open 24 hours, seven days a week.

“The growth of small and medium businesses in the Middle East has increased tremendously over the past couple of years, and our local FedEx Kinko’s centers aim to serve as a valuable resource for businesses in the region,” said Candice Wessinger, Managing Director, International Business Development, FedEx Office. “Our new location in Beirut is a significant part of our overall strategy to provide SMBs and mobile professionals with even greater access to our office and print services, as well as the FedEx transportation network.”

The first FedEx Kinko’s Middle East location opened in 1998 in Dubai. Earlier this year, FedEx Office and Al-Kharafi Group opened a center in Dubai in January and another in Kuwait City in June. With the addition of the Beirut center, there are now nine FedEx Kinko’s locations in the region, including four centers in United Arab Emirates (UAE) and four in Kuwait.

“We look forward to supporting the needs of up-and-coming entrepreneurs for years to come,” said Mohamed Moharram, Regional Director, with Al-Kharafi Group.
