CHANDLER, AZ (CBS5) -

A world leader in Global Positioning Satellite devices is expanding its operations in Chandler and seeks to fill 141 jobs over the next three years, the city announced Tuesday.

The new positions at Garmin include software and product development jobs.

"These are the elite technology jobs, and employees in this industry can choose to live anywhere," said Mayor Jay Tibshraeny. "You have to have an excellent community and sense of place in order to attract and retain companies like Garmin."

The company also said it will construct a 60,000-square-foot building in the Chandler Corporate Center where it has leased space for the past five years.

The Chandler office will help support Garmin's software engineering needs, including aviation, automotive OEM and desktop applications.

Chandler was selected over several other states in a highly competitive process.

Garmin has expanded three times at its current location near Chandler and McClintock and has selected LGE Design Build as its contractor for the LEED certified building.

Construction will begin late this summer with an expected completion in the first half of 2014.
