Yes, this is a very welcome addition and certainly will add jobs definitely needed at this time.  I would like to think the choice resulted from realizing the immense engineering talent we have in this country supported by excellent educational institutions.  Demand is one thing but as mentioned in the article, Zuken is a global firm and could locate additional facilities just about any place in the world.  I think also their choice might be due to a structured political environment and development freedoms not realized in other parts of the world.  I'm sure they investigated tax structures-which makes me wonder why California.

We engineers may not be experts in grammatical rules, but I'm pretty sure somebody inserted an apostrophe in the title of this article where one doesn't belong.
