Swiss electrical connection manufacturer Huber + Suhner Inc. said Friday that the company will move its North American headquarters to Charlotte, bringing 50 jobs.
Some of the jobs will be relocated from its current North American headquarters in Essex Junction, Vt. New jobs will include positions in sales, distribution and management.
The company will invest $3 million in its Charlotte location, according to the North Carolina governor’s office. Huber + Suhner does not have a specific facility selected yet, but is looking in the Steele Creek area, said company human resources, IT and facilities director Yvonne R. Barney. It should be up and running by summer 2014.
“Our business has changed in the past few years, causing us to look elsewhere,” Andrew Hollywood, president and general manager of Huber + Suhner North America, said in a statement.
“Charlotte’s proximity to other markets, combined with a competitive salary environment and favorable cost of doing business, convinced the company’s management to relocate its North America headquarters to Charlotte.”
Huber + Suhner makes components such as cables, connectors and antennas for communications, transportation and other industrial companies.
