Bizz Buzz: Local business wrap-upBy: Scott Thomas Anderson, Editor
News in late October that Telefunken Semiconductors had cornered California’s market on contract chip manufacturing was met with optimism in the region — and just three weeks later the company has announced a major expansion of its Roseville facility. Telefunken representatives said the move will make the company the largest semiconductor foundry in the United States.
A large, abandoned space at the Creekside Retail Center, which was once the Home Depot Expo Center, is getting a new lease on life as three businesses have announced plans to move in. Bed Bath & Beyond, Buy Buy Baby and Cost Plus World Market will collectively fill the space. Representatives from the City of Roseville confirmed significant remodeling is planned for the building, with 51,203 square feet going to Bed Bath & Beyond, 29,153 square feet going to Buy, Buy Baby and the rest going to Cost Plus. The city said the price tag for the improvements was in excess of $3 million.
Things remain lively at Adventist Health, which just announced that Jeff Conklin will be the new Vice President of payer and network strategies. The faith-based, nonprofit health provider also confirmed it will be expanding its Roseville headquarters on Douglas Boulevard by building a second office building on a neighboring parcel.
