Mar. 13, 2023 /SemiMedia/ -- onsemi recently announced the move of its headquarters from Phoenix to Scottsdale. With the new office located on the Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Community (SRPMIC), the inauguration event will include an official welcome to the LEED Gold-certified building at 5701 N. Pima Rd by Doran Dalton, assistant community manager, SRPMIC. A ribbon cutting and remarks by Mark Stanton, president and CEO, Scottsdale Chamber of Commerce, will round out the formal part of the festivities, before onsemi employees and guests will enjoy refreshments and entertainment.
By reducing onsemi’s energy consumption by 12.84 million kWh compared to its energy use in 2021, the move to the new headquarters will positively impact onsemi on the journey to its net-zero emissions by 2040 goal. The reduction in energy equals providing electricity to 1,057 homes for an entire year. Based on features such as its windows-to-wall ratio, which improves lighting levels within the building, and lighting equipped with controls that are responsive to ambient daylight throughout the day, the building received a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for Interior Design and Construction (LEED ID+C) Gold certification in 2019. The open-plan environment will promote innovation, collaboration and creativity for local employees. Amenities include a coffee shop, fitness center, training and conference centers and covered parking for all employees.
“The move to the new headquarters, along with our continued investment in US semiconductor manufacturing and the local economy, marks our ongoing transformation as a company on the heels of a record fiscal year in 2022,” said Hassane El-Khoury, president and chief executive officer, onsemi. “Despite hiring fluctuations in the technology industry, we continue to recruit top talent to drive technology breakthroughs that deliver on the promise of a sustainable future. The location and building of our new headquarters properly reflect those sustainability goals and the desire to be part of the communities we work and live in.”
onsemi’s new home base is part of the Salt River Pima Maricopa Indian Community, which was established in 1879 and is a self-governing tribe that encompasses two sovereign tribes: the Pima and the Maricopa. The SRPMIC has more than 11,000 Salt River tribal members and consists of 52,600 acres of land, many of which are being used for agriculture. Out of respect for its land, the Community maintains 19,000 of its acres as natural preserve. onsemi’s office building is located on the Pima corridor, which is part of the land SRPMIC uses commercially.
The company is also hiring, with currently 73 job openings at the Scottsdale-based headquarters and 530 globally.
