After conducting Siemens, Plessey and sundry others on guided tours around Sperry’s Eagan, Minnesota chip facilities over the past six months, Unisys Corp has pulled the design and fabrication plant off the market, and decided instead to seek a buyer for the Burroughs facility in Rancho Bernardo, California.
