Memory-chip company - Folsom

When it’s not operating as the largest privately held, global technology company in the Sacramento region, Numonyx B.V. could serve as a marketing extension of the Folsom Chamber of Commerce, the city council and the mayor’s office.

Headquartered in Switzerland, the privately held company, which claims to be the world’s third-largest supplier of memory technology and the number one provider of memory chips for mobile phones, is a major booster of doing business in Folsom.

Numonyx picked the city as its North American headquarters and opened nearly 100,000 square feet of office and laboratory space at 2235 Iron Point Road in December. The site is staffed by nearly 450 employees working in or supporting strictly research and development. There’s no manufacturing.

Folsom won the nod partly because of the nearness of the Numonyx facility to the Intel Corporation campus. Numonyx was formed in 2008 when Intel and STMicroelectronics joined their flash memory businesses to create the independent company focused solely on memory technologies. Until the move into its new building, Numonyx employees temporarily worked at the Intel site.
