After 50 years in business, JIMAPCO has closed its flagship building on Route 9 in Clifton Park in order to decentralize its operations.
It also involves a change in ownership.
When Dave Fisk’s father, Jim Fisk, started the new speculative map-making venture in 1966, neither of them had any idea that the company would still be in business 50 years later.
“In those days, we’d split $60 at the end of the day and consider the day a success”, said Dave Fisk, president of JIMAPCO. “Now the company is 50 years old, and still synonymous with premiere mapmaking, including custom, retail, online, mobile, and digital production.
But he and his wife sought retirement, so it was time for some changes.
“Fortunately our long-time employees want to keep JIMAPCO moving into the future, so we are delighted to report that the business will essentially continue, just at different locations and under different leadership,” he said.
