LEHI -- Software giant Adobe made a major announcement Friday. The company unveiled it will build a campus in Lehi, which will bring many more jobs to the state.

Adobe announced a couple of months ago it would build in Utah. Now the company has announced it will set up shop in Lehi near the Cabela's store off Interstate 15.

Adobe announces new facility to be built in Lehi

At an event Friday morning, Adobe brought its employees from its campus in Orem to celebrate the new location.

Last year, Adobe bought Orem-based Omniture for $1.8 billion and will move the company's presence in Utah from Orem to Lehi.

The company expects to add as many as 350 more jobs with the likelihood of bringing another 1,000 to the state over the next decade.

Adobe says it likes what Utah has to offer and believes it will be a leader in the state's economic future.

"We have 620 employees currently in the state of Utah," said Brad Rencher, vice president and general manager of Omniture Adobe. "These are software engineers, sales reps, really well-paying jobs. Our average salary is about 175 percent of the average in Utah County. It truly is an opportunity for us to become the foundation for the broader technology community in Utah."

Lehi City leaders believe Adobe will be a catalyst in bringing not only more high-tech jobs to the area but is optimistic other businesses will get a boost, such as restaurants and hotels.

"It's going to be a real cornerstone for the boost we are going to get for our community, and we're becoming kind of an IT or tech park around here," said Lehi Mayor Bert Wilson.

The facility is planned to be 230,000 square feet. Construction is expected to begin sometime next year with the facility opening in the fall of 2012.
