Mitsubishi Motors Moves U.S. HQ to Tennessee
Mitsubishi Motors Corp. confirms it will relocate its North American headquarters from Cypress, Calif., to Franklin, Tenn., next spring.
The company will occupy 40,000 sq ft comprising most of the top two floors of a commercial building currently under construction in Franklin, a suburb of Nashville.
The new office will house about 200 staffers, some of whom currently are located at a temporary headquarters a block away, according to the company. MMC is hiring 150 people locally.
The revived MMC, a part of the Renault-Nissan alliance from mid-2017, has replaced 80% of its North American leadership, added 48 dealers in the U.S. and is finishing up its seventh year of annual sales growth in the region.
Topology optimization cuts part development time and costs, material consumption, and product weight. And it works with additive, subtractive, and all other types of manufacturing processes, too.
Ram Truck chief exterior designer Joe Dehner talks about how they’ve developed the all-new pickup. “We’ve been building trucks for over 100 years,” he says. “Best I could come up with is that this is our 15th-generation truck.”
