HARLOW Council is pleased to welcome global company Renesas to the Harlow Innovation Park at Maypole Boulevard. Renesas headquarters are in Japan and they employ around 19,000 people across the world including operations in Asia, North America, South America, Middle East and in Europe. They will be moving their UK office from within the town and expanding it at Nexus occuping a whole floor of the building with upwards of 30 staff and creating at least 20 jobs in the future. The 10 year lease will see the company occupy 10,000 square feet.
Renesas focuses on a broad range of automotive, industrial, home electronics, office automation, and information communication technology applications. The company’s solutions enable billions of devices to connect, enhancing the way people work and live.
Councillor Tony Durcan, Portfolio Holder for Growth & Prosperity, said “We are delighted to welcome our first tenant Renesas to the Nexus Building. The company represents the continuation of Harlow’s legacy of hosting innovative technology businesses which make people’s lives better. We look forward to seeing them continue to succeed and grow in Harlow, bringing employment and business opportunities to our town. Helping a global company to stay and expand in Harlow shows the confidence there is in our town as a place to do business.”
Neil Robinson, Senior Director, said: “Renesas has a long established relationship with Harlow, opening a Design Centre here twenty years ago. The move to Nexus on the Harlow Innovation Park provides an opportunity to continue our growth in an environment tailor made for technology driven companies. Harlow’s location, close to London and Cambridge, together with its excellent rail, road and airport connections make it an ideal choice for our operation.”
