Mitsubishi announces relocation from California to Tennessee

We’re excited about Mitsubishi’s announcement today to relocate its headquarters to Franklin, Tenn. from Cypress, Calif.

Mitsubishi Motors’ move represents an investment in Williamson county of $18.25 million and brings approximately 200 jobs to the county. 

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 be relocating, including sales, marketing, IT, human resources, communications, parts and services, product planning, dealer operations, finance and legal. 

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 touchpoint in a customer’s relationship. It will sharpen the company’s focus on future growth and innovation. 

Mitsubishi Motors’ move highlights efforts taken across the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance to bring the companies closer together in key areas, including procurement, development and cost efficiencies. The choice of Franklin brings Mitsubishi Motors closer to its sister company, Nissan, which has its North American headquarters in Williamson County.
