Larry Mieldezis of Liaison Technologies

CARBONDALE — Larry Mieldezis, Chief Operation Officer for Liaison Technologies, decided to expand his Atlanta-based business to Carbondale and is now outgrowing that location.

Mieldezis, Marion native and a 1996 SIU graduate, expanded Liaison Technologies to offices in the Dunn-Richmond Center in 2010. The global company, which provides data integration and data translation services, has now expanded enough in Southern Illinois that a new location is needed. He said clients include Merck & Company, International Paper and Warner Bros.

He said the company will move to 1075 Reed Station Road, Suite B, in Carbondale, where they will be one of two tenants. There will be a ribbon cutting for the move Monday, Feb. 27. The company also recently moved into new corporate headquarters in Atlanta to accommodate expansion.

The Carbondale location started with seven employees and grew to 18 through four offices in the Dunn-Richmond Center. Mieldezis said with the expansion, he expects to hire two or three more people. The company has also recently received $30 million to expand services to healthcare and healthcare information exchange companies.

Mieldezis said the Office of Economic and Regional Development at SIU “allowed us to make a very easy decision to choose Carbondale and partner with SIU.” The location has helped the company hire SIU graduates.

Kyle Harfst, director of the Office of Economic and Regional Development, said the department looked for companies that could bring outsourced jobs back to the United States and Mieldezis approached them about doing just that.

Harfst said he is pleased to see that the business has been successful enough to expand and hopes other businesses can replicate that success.

“It worked out wonderfully from my perspective,” Harfst said.
