Motorola is joining the ranks of multinational technology companies stepping up their operations in Israel.

The company is expanding its presence in Jordan Valley with a government-backed R&D site that will initially employ 200 engineers and researchers. Over the next five years, the Israel Investment Center will grant Motorola around $12 million, plus $900 per employee for up to 60 months, for a maximum of 200 employees. Researchers to be hired over the next three years will focus on product development for the company's cellphones, computers and software products lines.

Motorola said it is already looking into the possibility of expanding the facility and hiring between 300 and 500 engineers within five years.

The company has been operating in Israel since 1964 and currently employs 3,500 personnel across several sites.
