NEC Electronics America has boosted its workforce in Roseville to 850, about a 20% increase in the last year and a half. It’s part of a shuffle that involved closure of a plant in Ireland and moving work here from Japan. The Roseville facility makes chips that are used in digital cameras and other handheld devices, as well as the automotive industry. Opened in 1983 in Roseville, the NEC plant had nearly twice as many workers in its heyday. Like its Roseville neighbor, Hewlett Packard, it has scaled back, although it’s expanding again.
