Samsung expands its presence in Texas


Samsung Electronics America will relocate its North Texas-based teams from the Richardson and Plano facilities to Legacy Central in Plano. Together with development partner Regent Properties, Samsung Electronics America’s North Texas offices will now be located in a newly redeveloped 216,000 square foot building in Phase I of Plano’s Legacy Central campus. Occupancy will begin in the first quarter of 2019.
North Texas is home to Samsung Electronics America’s second biggest employee population in the U.S. across multiple divisions – Customer Care, Mobile, Mobile R&D and Engineering. In all, more than 1,000 regional employees from two current locations in Richardson and Plano will be relocated to the new location. The company’s longstanding and growing commitment to Texas is also complemented by its 17 billion dollar Samsung Austin Semiconductor manufacturing plant, responsible for creating more than 10,000 central Texas jobs and accounts for 3.6 billion dollar in economic activity for the region.
«We are continuing our strong commitment to North Texas by investing in a new office space at Legacy Central – said Tim Baxter, President and CEO, Samsung Electronics North America. – This move not only provides us with an opportunity to create an improved workplace experience for our Texas-based employees, but truly showcases our continued investment in our Texas roots.»
