A major Taiwanese computer firm will relocate in Utah, and a press conference will be held in Gov. Norm Bangerter's office Thursday morning to release the particulars.
He will make the announcement during a report on his recently completed spring economic development trip to the Orient.On March 9, the Deseret News reported a Taiwanese computer-related manufacturer would bring up to 650 jobs over several years. At that time, Richard Bradford, executive director of the Utah Valley Economic Development Authority, was quoted as saying the firm's first choice for the plant was Springville followed by Salt Lake City and Provo.
However, sources in the Utah Division of Business and Economic Development won't confirm the company's name or whether a final site has been selected. That announcement will be made Thursday by the governor.
This announcement is the second tangible result of the governor's Far East visit, the first being an agreement with Japanese travel agencies that could bring thousands of Japanese tourists to the Intermountain Region in the next 12 months.
