The Pflugerville City Council approved the agreement Tuesday night, and was quick with a question for the company's regional controller, Ron Churchman.
"What would it take to move your corporate headquarters to Pflugerville?" Council Member Mike Heath asked Churchman. While Churchman said he couldn't answer the question, Heath indicated it is likely to be asked again.
The San Jose-based, employee-owned electrical provider has 6,000 employees nationwide with offices in nine states.
PCDC Executive Director Amy Madison said the company celebrates its 100th year in business in 2019, and the agreement to bring part of their operations from Manor to Pflugerville will be good for the city.
Terms include Rosendin leasing at least 50,000 square feet of space for a minimum of 10 years, and investing at least $3 million in improvements and personal property at the facility.
Rosendin agreed to transfer or hire at least 54 positions in Pflugerville by Oct. 1, 2019, with an average wage of $75,000 annually. The company will receive job credits for additional positions created beyond the 54. The maximum payout by the PCDC will be $60,000 at a rate of $2,000 per new job.
Churchman, with Rosendin for 11 years, said the city of Pflugerville was ideal for the company's Texas growth because of the highway infrastructure and quality workforce.
Rosendin also has locations in Grapevine, San Antonio and College Station, with about 100 office employees and the bulk of electricians, around 400, working mostly in the Fort Worth area.
