Mitsubishi Motors North America leaving California for Tennessee

Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc. (MMNA), the fastest-growing Asian brand in the US for the second consecutive year, will relocate its headquarters from Cypress, California, to Franklin, Tennessee, a suburb of Nashville. The move is part of an ongoing plan to reinvent every aspect of Mitsubishi Motors in the US, from corporate leadership to dealer partners to every touchpoint in a customer’s relationship with their vehicle.

Since 1988, MMNA has been rooted in California—now Cypress, and Fountain Valley prior to that. This move will begin in August, and be completed by the end of 2019. There are nearly 200 people working in MMNA’s Cypress office. All corporate departments will be relocating, including sales, marketing, IT, human resources, communications, parts and service, product planning, dealer operations, finance and legal.

MMNA’s west coast parts distribution center (PDC), currently located on the existing headquarters campus, also will be relocating. MMNA is working with Nissan North America to establish its PDC in a newly constructed shared facility in Riverside, California.

No other Mitsubishi Motors facilities in the US are affected, including Mitsubishi Research and Development North America (MRDA)’s R&D operations in Ann Arbor, Michigan and MRDA government relations operations in Washington, D.C.

MMNA’s move highlights efforts taken across the entire global landscape of the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance to bring the companies closer together in key areas including procurement, development and cost efficiencies. The company will realize more than just a fresh look at every aspect of its business, as the choice of Franklin sees Mitsubishi move closer to its sister company, Nissan, as well.

Should have put it in Owensboro, Kentucky. For all the tax dollars we put to work, like it or not, https://www.courier-journal.com/story/news/politics/2019/06/11/mitch-mcconnell-reelection-elaine-chaos-kentucky-projects-scrutinized/1418351001/
