MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - Gibson is moving its Memphis operations to its headquarters in Nashville.

In a statement from Gibson Brands, the company says the move will take place after their lease expires in Memphis in April 2019.

Some Memphis-based employees are being offered relocation opportunities. It’s not clear how many employees will lose their jobs.

Read the company’s complete statement below.

After thorough evaluation and amid the previously disclosed April 2019 expiration of our Memphis lease, we have determined that integrating the company’s Memphis operations with our Gibson USA and Gibson Custom facilities in Nashville, where Gibson is headquartered, is the right next step for our business.  This integration will provide the company with an opportunity to drive scale, streamline our production, and create much needed synergy.  With this planned integration, a number of Memphis-based employees will be offered the opportunity to relocate to Nashville and our goal over the next several months is to support our employees and allow our business to have the appropriate time to manage this transition accordingly.
