JMA Wireless Expands Syracuse, New York, Headquarters
The company relocated its operations to Syracuse's southeast gateway adjacent to the city center on Cortland Avenue. The campus currently houses JMA's headquarters and factory of the future.
"This is an historic moment and the critical first step to restoring American leadership in global wireless technology, as we establish Syracuse as a national 5G hub. We appreciate Governor Hochul's partnership as we add more than 200 jobs and invest over $100 million in Central New York,” said JMA Chief Executive Officer John Mezzalingua.
Empire State Development is providing a $5 million Upstate Revitalization Initiative grant to assist with this project.
"Under Governor Hochul's leadership, we are continuing to attract global innovators like JMA Wireless that understand New York State offers a unique tech talent pool to support their growth,” added Empire State Development President, CEO and Commissioner Hope Knight, said. “The wireless technology leader's decision to locate its new global HQ in Syracuse - and to open the country's only U.S.- owned 5G campus here - reflects New York State's focus on growing an innovation economy to create the jobs of tomorrow."

The company powers today’s leading industries through next-generation software-based 5G, private wireless networks, 5G-ready antennas and connectors, and advanced indoor 5G capabilities, all manufactured in the U.S.
