Incentives Keep Mitsubishi Motors in Normal, Illinois, Saving 1,200 Jobs
"Mitsubishi Motors remains fully committed to producing vehicles in Normal, and I would like to thank Governor Quinn for his support of the automotive industry. We will build vehicles here not just for the United States, but for many nations around the world," said Mitsubishi Motors North America President Shinichi Kurihara.
The state's Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) will administer the more than $29 million package consisting of EDGE tax credits and Employer Training Investment Program (ETIP) job training funds. It will also benefit from being located in an Enterprise Zone.
EDGE allows car makers to retain employee income tax withholdings and reinvest the money in job-creating projects.
