Sebis Direct, Inc. was incorporated in 1989 from an earlier corporation called Sebis Inc.
Sebis was located in the central business district of Chicago in the River North neighborhood. It was relocated to the the South Loop on 2 floors of the White Tower building located at 847 West Jackson Blvd in Chicago.
By this time Sebis was established as a high integrity, high complexity document production firm. Approximately 50% of all documents produced were heathcare related bills and statements. The remaining volume spread out over banking, insurance, marketing and government activities.
When it was obvious that a second location was needed, Sebis purchased a 70,000 sq ft building in the inner ring Chicago suburb of Bedford Park. This location is less than 1000 ft from the USPS South Suburban Processing and Distribution Center (P & DC). UPS and Fedex also have a large presence here due to it's proximity to downtown Chicago, interstate highways, railways and Midway airport. Sebis is able to quickly release large volumes of mail and packages of every kind into the world's largest shipping logistics networks.
When the lease was canceled at the primary location in downtown Chicago, Sebis needed to select a new secondary location. It was decided to relocate the Headquarters to the Bedford Park location and locate a new site in another city. The Bedford Park facility received a huge face lift including on-site power generation, new lighting, offices and divided production spaces. Hurricane Katrina changed the landscape of disaster recovery, requiring that the secondary location could not be within the Chicago social and economic region. Cleveland was ultimately selected for the second location. Sebis purchased a 65,000 sq ft building in the south central area of Cleveland known as Brooklyn Heights. This building was rehabbed as well to create a modern and security compliant facility.
Presently, Sebis operates both facilities with over 50 employees.
Of course, the real history is the development of services along with the evolution of document management and production over this same time span. Sebis is dedicated to Open Sourced IT environments, languages and toolsets. These tools and technologies have been adopted for use in the most demanding document business processes provided anywhere.
