PHOENIX — Helix Electric announced Thursday it plans to open its first Arizona manufacturing facility in Goodyear.

The San Diego-based business said it will fabricate components for electrical construction at a 112,000-square-foot West Valley plant. Those parts will be shipped to existing Helix Electric markets nationwide.

The Arizona expansion will create more than 100 jobs in engineering, production, quality control and administration, the electrical contracting company said in an Arizona Commerce Authority press release.

“After an exhaustive search, we found that Goodyear had the right mix of a trained workforce, a great business climate and access to transportation networks that would suit our needs now and long into the future,” CEO Boris Shekhter said in the release.

Helix Electric, which was founded in 1985, has offices in California, Nevada, Utah, Texas, Hawaii, and Virginia.

“Helix Electric is the latest example of a California-based company expanding its footprint into greater Phoenix to maximize our robust talent pool and scale in the country’s fastest growing region,” Chris Camacho, president and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council, said in the release.
