InteSys Technologies, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Textron, is leasing 84,000 sf for a headquarters and manufacturing facility for its Nokia division at Alliance, a move that guarantees one-day product delivery to a 1,500-mile region.

The company plans to employ 200 workers at the facility, which will be taking up a portion of the 192,000-sf Alliance Gateway 9 building that will be ready for occupancy in October. InteSys is the first tenant for the structure, a source told

“The location of this facility at Alliance is part of an overall strategy by InteSys to get closer to our customers and provide high-quality products and just-in-time delivery,” said Joe Borden, vice president and general manager of the Nokia division of InteSys Technologies. “InteSys chose Alliance because of its location, which allows easy access to the east and west coast of the United States, as well as Latin America.” The site reaps benefits from its proximity to Fort Worth Alliance Airport and Alliance’s BNSF intermodal yard.

In the past two years, Nokia and its support businesses have added nearly 1 million sf and 4,500 jobs to the Alliance project. AT&T alone, which programs and distributes Nokia-manufactured phones, occupies 330,000 sf and employs 420 in comparison to its 1998 lease of 40,000 sf and 80 workers originally assigned to the site.

The Gilbert, AZ-based InteSys has a workforce of 1,700 in Arizona, California and Texas plus Brazil, Ireland and Mexico. It is a leading provider of plastics and metal-engineered assemblies for telecommuniciations, automotive, computer/business machines, medical and general consumer industries.
