Mitsubishi Motors North America to Relocate U.S. Headquarters to Metro Nashville
FRANKLIN, TENN. — Mitsubishi Motors North America (MMNA) will relocate its corporate U.S. headquarters from Cypress, Calif., to Franklin by the end of this year. The move will begin in August, where MMNA will occupy office space in a temporary location in Franklin. The company said the move will occur in an effort to reinvent itself and to be closer to sister company Nissan North America, which is headquartered in Nashville. MMNA is working with JLL to identify a permanent office location. 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. Additionally, 25 employees representing the company’s Western Region operations will move to new offices in Orange County, Calif. It was not immediately clear on how much office space MMNA will lease in Franklin. MMNA is in talks with Nissan North America to move its West Coast distribution center, which is located on its existing corporate campus, to a new, shared facility in Riverside, Calif.
