Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe and Mitsubishi Motors North America officials announced on Tuesday the automaker will relocate its headquarters to Franklin from Cypress, California.

Williamson, Inc. will host a welcoming party for Mitsubishi Motors on Friday, July 19 at the Williamson, Inc. office from 9 a.m.-2 p.m. 

Guests can stop by and welcome some of the Mitsubishi team members and learn about career opportunities at Mitsubishi Motors’ new Franklin office. The automaker will relocate its North American headquarters to Franklin from Cypress, California, representing an investment in Williamson County of $18.25 million and bringing approximately 200 jobs. 

Since 1988, Mitsubishi Motors North America has been rooted in California. The relocation to Franklin will begin in August and be completed by the end of 2019. All departments will relocate, including sales, marketing, IT, human resources, communications, parts and services, product planning, dealer operations, finance and legal. 

Initially, Mitsubishi Motors will transfer operations to a temporary office in Franklin. Beyond that, the company is working with commercial real estate firm Jones Lang LaSalle to identify permanent offices.
