ROUND ROCK - International manufacturer Benchmark Electronics has announced that it will open a new manufacturing and assembly facility this summer.

The new facility will be located in the Corridor Park business development, located off of southbound I-35, south of the intersection of I-35 and SH 45 N.

The new branch is expected to bring between 75 and 80 jobs to the area, according to Ben White, vice president of economic development at the Round Rock Chamber of Commerce/Economic Development Partnership.

The chamber’s Economic Development Partnership incentivized the company to move to Round Rock by fast-tracking city inspection and permitting procedures, White said. The chamber also worked with the Texas Workforce Commission to assist in getting Benchmark’s new local workers trained through Austin Community College.

Benchmark Electronics makes a variety of electronic components for the industrial controls, medical and telecommunications markets among others.
