As many as 200 jobs could be created early next year when TMI Inc., an El Segundo-based computer hardware manufacturing company, relocates its engineering and manufacturing operations to Oceanside.
TMI Inc., a subsidiary of New York City-based Nytronics Inc., on Monday said it had signed a five-year lease in Oceanside's Rancho Del Oro Technology Park. The privately held company, which now has 224 employees, last year reported $15 million in revenues.
Although many current TMI employees are expected to move to Oceanside, the company will hire at least 100 and as many as 200 clerical, assembly, engineering and management employees, according to TMI President Ron Saia.
TMI, which specializes in the production and assembly of precision parts for the computer and aerospace industries, decided to move to San Diego County because "salary levels are more realistic for a company of our size," Saia said. "We can't compete with the large aerospace companies."
