A new smart technology manufacturing facility will open next year in Lewisville, bringing 400 new jobs and $134 million in capital investment to Denton County
Ericsson Inc. will build the manufacturing facility to produce 5G Advanced Antenna System Radio Module products, according to a news release from the county on Thursday. Ericsson provides communication and network equipment, software and services for network and business operations, and is one of the leading providers of information and communication technology, according to a news release from Gov. Greg Abbott’s office. Ericsson Inc. received a $3,592,400 grant from the Texas Enterprise Fund.
“We are proud of the fact that Denton County will be home to a state-of-the-art information and communication technology facility that will bring high-paying jobs to our residents,” said Denton County Judge Andy Eads.
Niklas Heuveldop, president and head of Ericsson North America, said Lewisville is an “ideal location” for this “factory of the future.”
