PHOENIX – A worldwide technology company plans to set up a manufacturing site in metro Phoenix and expects to be operational next year.

California-based Viavi Solutions said Wednesday the facility will be in Chandler, where about 100 employees from the optical security and performance products group will work.

That group supplies network testing and technology used in anticounterfeiting applications, consumer electronics and the aerospace industry.

The firm out of San Jose will eventually move its headquarters to the East Valley site from temporary office space in Scottsdale.

“Arizona welcomes another headquarters, drawn here by what our state has to offer — a talented workforce, innovation ecosystem, quality of life and more,” Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey said in a press release.

Viavi said it generated $1.14 billion in revenue in fiscal year 2020 at its 50 locations around the world.

“We are thrilled that VIAVI chose Chandler and we are confident that our community offers the ideal environment to scale their business,” Mayor Kevin Hartke said in a press release.
