    Tennessee, Texas ready if Nissan wants to move its headquarters

    Tennessee ready if Nissan wants to move its headquarters
    09/16/2005
    By ROSE FRENCH / Associated Press

    State officials remain tightlipped about a report Nissan Motor Co. may move its North American headquarters from California to Tennessee or Texas.

    The Japanese automaker is considering locations near where it already has operations in order to save money, according to a published report earlier this week in the Los Angeles Times, which cited unnamed sources inside and outside the company.

    The nearly 1,300 people employed at Nissan's Los Angeles-area headquarters work in management, marketing, advertising, sales and distribution and dealership development for North America.

    Nissan is studying consolidating the offices with its U.S. manufacturing headquarters in Smyrna, the newspaper reported. The Smyrna plant has 6,500 employees and is located about 20 miles southeast of Nashville. The company also has an engine plant in Decherd, Tenn. which employs about 1,300.

    Another option being looked at is a move to Dallas, the newspaper reported, where Nissan employs about 800 people in a finance operations center.

    Nissan North America spokeswoman Julie Lawless told The Associated Press the company "can't comment on future business decisions. It's just speculation at this point."

    Tennessee economic development officials are similarly mum: "Basically we don't talk about any prospects until an official announcement is made," said Dawn Rutledge Jones, spokeswoman for the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development.

    Nissan has been VERY successful working/designing in CA. They should stay put.

    Well, it looks like Nissan is chasing the cheap labor in management and marketing too, now. Maybe GM will be making a comeback after all.

    Help me out, I'm not making the connection. How does this equate a GM comeback?

    Whenever something negative happens to imports (this isn't even negative) some people "predict" that GM will somehow rebound from it.
