Rest assured knowing your modified shipping container will be built to the highest quality standards. Our certified weld and quality control inspectors check every step of the fabrication process to ensure everything is structurally sound and built to your specifications.

CHANDLER, Ariz. – "1968: A Folsom Redemption" is a candid photography exhibition covering a critical juncture in the career of Johnny Cash, one of the 20th century’s most beloved performers. This collection of photographs and memories was captured by two journalists who witnessed the historic Johnny Cash concerts at Folsom Prison. "1968: A Folsom Redemption" will be on view June 20-Aug.13 at Chandler Museum.

In January 1968, Johnny Cash was at a crossroads. After a slow decline in popularity, Cash needed a smash hit. He had recently straightened out his life and was looking for redemption. Under new leadership at his record label, Cash was finally able to convince them of the merits of a live recording in a prison setting. Cash had been performing for inmates as far back as 1957, when he received a stream of requests from prisoners who identified with the man who sang "Folsom Prison Blues." The connection he developed with prisoners during these concerts made him increasingly sympathetic to those he would later call “the downtrodden.”

Working as freelance journalists, photographer Dan Poush and writer Gene Beley met with Cash and his family the day before the concerts. Cash, along with opening acts Carl Perkins and the Statler Brothers, performed two separate shows in the dining hall at Folsom. Capturing Cash’s ability to connect with his audience, the recordings crackled with the excitement of an adoring crowd. The resulting album, "At Folsom Prison," was released four months later to critical and popular acclaim.

Beley’s first-person account of those days, and his knowledge of the storylines at work behind the scenes, make this a fascinating exploration of the little-known aspects of a well-known event in popular culture. "1968: A Folsom Redemption" takes the viewer right into the heart of this pivotal moment in the life and career of one of the twentieth century’s most cherished musical personalities.

"1968: A Folsom Redemption" is organized by ExhibitsUSA, a program of Mid-America Arts Alliance and will be on view at the Chandler Museum from June 20-Aug. 13, 2023. Chandler Museum is located 300 S. Chandler Village Drive. It is open Tuesday-Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sunday 1-5 p.m. and closed on Mondays. Admission is free. Find more information on the exhibitions and programming online at Chandler Museum or call 480-782-2717.

CHANDLER, Ariz. – Chandler City Council voted on July 20, 2023, to tentatively adopt the provisions of a development and purchase agreement between JEMBJACD, LLC, and the city for the sale and development of .36 acres of city-owned property located at the southwest corner of Chicago and Oregon streets.

The developer, JEMBJACD, LLC, intends to construct a food hall featuring a minimum of six and a maximum of 12 restaurants and/or retail outlets with a level of quality that would complement other businesses operating in Downtown Chandler.

"Unless you have visited a food hall in another state similar to what we are creating, to truly grasp the essence of what we offer, you need to experience it firsthand, as it goes beyond anything found in a conventional mall food court,” said JEMBJACD, LLC Partner Jeremy McClymonds. “Our establishment embodies a diverse restaurant mecca, elevating common dishes to an uncommon level of excellence.”

McClymonds continued, “It will not be specifically a sports bar, but a welcoming gathering spot with wall-to-wall televisions broadcasting every sport, every day. Our venue will also be an entertainment hub, offering live music and engaging entertainment multiple times a week. It will be a captivating destination where remarkable culinary experiences, entertainment, and community engagement intersect in perfect harmony.”

This development is not a conference center; however, it will have versatile event spaces to host business meetings, family gatherings, or community activities.

The final design and food hall name will be unveiled in the near future.

The terms of the agreement include the city selling the property at an appraised value of $200,000, with the right to re-purchase it at the originally purchased price if the developer does not complete the minimum improvements as outlined. The developer’s minimum improvements include a single two-story building consisting of at least 15,000 square feet of mixed-use building space with a central bar area, surrounded by multiple retail and restaurant tenants. Other improvements include an outdoor upper-deck patio with seating, trash and back-of-house services at the rear of the property, and a designated area for pickup, drop-off and other temporary activities.

Construction deadlines are outlined in the development agreement and include:

The next meeting of the Chandler City Council will be at 6 p.m. Monday, August 14, 2023. Council meetings are aired live, as well as replayed on the Chandler Channel - Cable Channel 11 and streamed online at the City of Chandler Channel. Click on Public Meeting Archive.

CHANDLER, Ariz. - Yield Engineering Systems (YES), a leading provider of technology solutions and process equipment for the semiconductor ecosystem and applications, held a ribbon-cutting ceremony today for its new 123,000-square-foot facility in Chandler, Arizona. The facility is located at 3200 W. Germann Road within the Price Corridor employment center.

The state-of-the-art YES Advanced Technology Center (YATC) will include 50,000-square-feet of manufacturing space for unparalleled semiconductor manufacturing and process development. There will also be a 10,000 square foot cleanroom in the first development phase that will be expanded to approximately 40,000 square feet in the future. The cleanroom will allow YES to collaborate with its customers to develop innovative processes and validate platform prototypes.

For over four decades, YES has been at the forefront of research and development that has pioneered new equipment used in semiconductor fabs throughout the world. Its portfolio encompasses cutting-edge technology and innovative hardware that drives advancements in multiple industries, from artificial intelligence and high-performance computing, to life sciences and mixed reality applications.

“YES has been financially supported by KCK Group for the past six years,” said Krishna Nety, Board Member of YES and Senior Managing Director at KCK Group. “YES’s continued growth and success is an excellent example of KCK’s commitment to American competitiveness, driven by industrial and emerging technologies.”

“YATC not only provides our customers and partners with state-of-the-art equipment for novel process development, but it is also a center that will bring best-in-class manufacturing of complex products in collaboration with our supply chain partners with an innovative business model, that enables significant job creation in the United States,” said Rama Alapati, CEO of YES. “We are thankful and proud to partner with the City of Chandler, State of Arizona and the federal government in bringing the YATC to life.”

Rezwan Lateef, President of YES added, “Designed to the highest standards of safety and workplace efficiency, the YATC will play a central role in our R&D collaborations with our global customer base and help them execute their exciting technology roadmaps. It also reflects our commitment to the United States' effort to build a strong domestic semiconductor industry, and we are proud to be a part of Arizona's burgeoning technology ecosystem."

Supporting the rapid expansion of the American semiconductor manufacturing infrastructure, YES has invested $25 million in the facility and aims to use it as a center of excellence that will help strengthen the semiconductor industry in Arizona and the entire US-based semiconductor ecosystem. The YATC should be complete by the end of 2023 and employ approximately 100 people, further propelling the region's technological prowess.

Several prominent government officials and community stakeholders also commented on the new YATC facility:

Arizona Senior Senator Kyrsten Sinema, Chair of the Senate Space and Science Subcommittee, stated, "Yield Engineering System's new YATC facility will strengthen Arizona's leadership as a hub for semiconductor manufacturing. That's why I was proud to help pass our bipartisan CHIPS and Science Act into law to fuel Arizona careers, keep Americans safe against foreign adversaries like China, and boost our economic competitiveness."

Rep. Greg Stanton stated, “The East Valley is metro Phoenix’s hub for advanced manufacturing, and we didn’t develop that reputation by accident. It’s thanks to years of hard work, planning and targeted investments like our bipartisan CHIPS Act. I couldn’t be more excited that leading companies like YES have chosen to take advantage of all that Chandler has to offer and expand their operations to meet the growing demand.”

Sandra Watson, President and CEO of the Arizona Commerce Authority, stated, “We are excited to celebrate Yield Engineering Systems’ Technology Center grand opening in Chandler. With a focus on manufacturing excellence and innovative research and development operations, YES’s new facility is a valued addition to Arizona’s growing semiconductor industry.”

Chris Camacho, President and CEO of the Greater Phoenix Economic Council, stated, “The inclusion of Yield Engineering Systems into our ecosystem presents another arm to our dynamic industry. With its manufacturing capabilities and commitment to collaboration on new, innovative processes, YES will grow as a key piece of the Chandler and Greater Phoenix semiconductor ecosystem.”

Chandler Mayor Kevin Hartke, stated, “We are thrilled to officially welcome another high-value semiconductor supplier with the addition of Yield Engineering Systems. Chandler’s exceptional workforce and business-friendly environment continue to put our community on the short list for these highly competitive projects. We appreciate the significant investment that YES is making in Chandler and the new job opportunities that will be available in our community.”
