The NICS HQ's is located in Southaven, Mississippi just outside of Memphis, Tennessee. Southaven offers all of the southern charm and hospitality that you would expect in a small southern town but also has all of the conveniences of a large city. The Memphis International Airport and FedEx's main distribution center are only twenty minutes away and are two conveniences that have proven to be a necessity for an international organization like NICS. Our central location makes travel into and out of the Home Office convenient and economic. After stating the obvious, the main reason NICS is located in Southaven has to do with the President and Founder Joe Hale. When asked, "Why Southaven, Mississippi?" Joe often jokes and says, "After living most of my life in some country on the other side of the world, we are where we are because, Momma said so." The truth is out.
