Mitsubishi Motors North America is heading East, having announced plans to relocate it's headquarters from Cypress, California to Franklin, Tennessee by the end of 2019.  MMNA's move highlights efforts to bring the Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance companies closer together in key areas including procurement, development and cost efficiencies.  The company chose Franklin as its new home because it allows MMNA to focus its efforts on company-wide reinvention while taking advantage of the area's business-friendly work environment and proximity to sister company, Nissan. Following six straight years of annual sales gains, the last two years now over 100,000 sales, Mitsubishi has earned the title of "fastest-growing Asian brand" for the second consecutive year.
