The company, owned by Japans Mitsubishi Electric Corp., said it would build a 350,000-square-foot facility on a 100-acre site in Memphis Rivergate Industrial Park beginning in late spring, with plans for production to begin in 2013.
Immediately, Mitsubishi will begin looking for skilled engineers and factory workers, and will open the plant with an initial 90 employees, it said. The additional jobs would come later when the facility is at full production.
