A major high-tech company will be bringing 1,000 employees to Newark when it moves to town next year.
Logitech officials said they are moving their Fremont offices to the Pacific Research Center on Gateway Boulevard near the Dumbarton Bridge.
The agreement calls for Logitech to lease 263,000 square feet in the complex.
The Switzerland-based manufacturer of computer and television devices now has offices in four buildings in Fremont.
Logitech spokeswoman Nancy Morrison said the company is moving because its current facilities were once a former manufacturing site that they've been in since 1990. She said it no longer serves their needs.
The move to Newark will put all 1,000 employees in the same office. The complex also has a cafeteria, fitness center and conference center that are shared by the building's tenants.
"The new site will provide us with a campus environment more suited for our current needs and it has amenities we don't currently have," said Morrison.
Newark Mayor David Smith said Logitech's move is good news for the city.
He said Logitech will become one of the city's largest employers. They will also bring the capacity of Pacific Research Center to about half-full.
He added that Logitech employees will shop and eat in Newark, helping businesses, especially those along Newark Boulevard.
Smith said he hopes Logitech can create new jobs for Newark as well as lure other high-tech firms to the area.
"Logitech is a wonderful company with a very recognizable name," the mayor said.
