As we wrap up the year with our final newsletter. We’d like to start by thanking each of you for your contributions to making this such a successful year. Over the course of 2023, we’ve reached new milestones and accomplished even more than we could have imagined just a year ago.
Here is a snapshot of our recent news and a review of the year.
December was a very exciting month for the EDC. We officially announced that Starz Electronics, a lithium battery manufacturer from Tunisia, has expanded its business to Temecula. Starz Electronics is a company that our Executive Director, Connie Stopher CEcD, met at SelectUSA this past May.
Starz Electronics will be housed at the TVE2 in Temecula while they finalize their search for a manufacturing location in the region. Starz plans to invest $28 million in the first year in their facility and create 60 new jobs. This is a great win for the region, and we are excited to welcome them to the region.
