The Israel Investment Center of the Industry, Trade and Labor Ministry on Tuesday approved a request from Motorola to establish a new hi-tech R&D facility in the Northern Jordan Valley.

Over the next five years, the Investment Center will contribute NIS 45 million plus NIS 3,750 per employee for up to 60 months to a maximum of 200 employees.

The new Motorola center, which will hire 200 new academics over the next three years, will focus on product development for all new Motorola products, including cellphones, computers and software. It also will hire engineers and technicians specializing in electronics, software and mechanics and will look into the possibility of expanding activities so as to hire between 300 and 500 engineers within five years.

Motorola has been investing in Israel for decades and it is hoped that the new R&D facility will help to create jobs and invigorate the Jordan Valley and surrounding areas.
