JMA Wireless, a 5G wireless technology leader, plans to expand its new headquarters in Syracuse, New York. The $100 million project is expected to create 200 jobs.
The company relocated its operations to Syracuse’s southeast gateway adjacent to the city center on Cortland Avenue. The campus currently houses JMA’s headquarters and factory of the future.
“This is an historic moment and the critical first step to restoring American leadership in global wireless technology, as we establish Syracuse as a national 5G hub. We appreciate Governor Hochul’s partnership as we add more than 200 jobs and invest over $100 million in Central New York,” said JMA Chief Executive Officer John Mezzalingua.
Empire State Development is providing a $5 million Upstate Revitalization Initiative grant to assist with this project.
“Under Governor Hochul’s leadership, we are continuing to attract global innovators like JMA Wireless that understand New York State offers a unique tech talent pool to support their growth,” added Empire State Development President, CEO and Commissioner Hope Knight, said. “The wireless technology leader’s decision to locate its new global HQ in Syracuse – and to open the country’s only US- owned 5G campus here – reflects New York State’s focus on growing an innovation economy to create the jobs of tomorrow.”
