Gateway Inc. announced today it will open a computer manufacturing facility in Nashville this fall that will employ more than 300 people with an annual payroll of about $8 million.

The plant, scheduled to open by October, will assemble custom-ordered desktop computers, notebooks, servers and storage arrays and provide custom-integration and software imaging services, the company said in a release.

The Irvine, Calif.-based computer company said it will begin next week recruiting workers, with the help of state organizations.

Gov. Phil Bredesen hailed the relocation announcement as a positive step for technology business growth in the state.
