Mitsubishi North America to relocate headquarters to Nashville
Mitsubishi Motors North America will relocate its headquarters from Cypress, California, to Franklin, Tennessee, a suburb of Nashville. Mitsubishi expects to begin its move from Cypress, California, to Franklin in August and to initially be housed in temporary office space as it looks for a permanent location.
The Japanese automaker has been in Southern California since the mid-1980s, first in Fountain Valley and then in nearby Cypress, where it has about 200 workers.
The move is part of an ongoing plan to reinvent every aspect of Mitsubishi Motors in the U.S., from corporate leadership to dealer partners to every touch-point in a customer's relationship with their vehicle, and will sharpen the company's focus on future growth and innovation.
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.
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.
