In order to facilitate the approval of state assistance, the Davenport City Council yesterday approved a resolution recommending the project to the IEDA and Iowa Dept. of Transportation.

Supported by state and Davenport economic development funding and incentives, Kraft Heinz will invest $203 million to establish the new facility on a 70-acre site in the Eastern Iowa Industrial Center (EIIC) business park, which was designated as one of six certified shovel-ready sites in the state by the IEDA earlier this year.

As part of its North American restructuring strategy, Kraft Heinz is planning to shut down its existing Davenport facility, which employs more than 1,200 people. Oscar Mayer, which was acquired by Kraft Heinz, has run the River Drive plant since 1946, but it is now considered functionally obsolete for the company’s future needs.

Kraft Heinz is planning to retain no more than 475 full-time positions at the proposed new facility in the EIIC business park. City and State officials have been working with the company for several months to ensure that Davenport gets the new facility and retains a minimum of 475 full-time jobs with an average wage of $18.98 per hour.

City of Davenport Community Planning and Economic Development Director Bruce Berger said in a release that they understand and empathize with the employees and their families that will be impacted by the restructuring of the company and the downsizing of the plant.

“Through proactive discussions with Kraft Heinz, the State, and our local partners, we continue to work hard to attract the new plant to Davenport and expect it to play an important role in the company’s future,” added Berger.

At the meeting today, the IEDA Board will consider a package of state incentives totaling $4.75 million, including $1.75 million in tax incentives and a $3 million forgivable loan. The City of Davenport’s inclusion of the new Kraft Heinz facility site in the City’s North Urban Renewal Area will additionally make it eligible for Tax Increment Financing.

The Iowa Department of Transportation will consider a Revitalizing Iowa’s Sound Economy (RISE) grant to cover the cost of more than $5.87 million in needed upgrades at the new site. The RISE grant, if approved, will cover 80 percent of the costs (an estimated grant award of $4,699,874).

Kraft Heinz is also getting $720,000 in training funds through the state-authorized Iowa Industrial New Jobs Training Program. Don Doucette, Chancellor of Eastern Iowa Community Colleges, said in the release that “We are very excited to work with Kraft, the Quad Cities Chamber of Commerce, the Iowa Economic Development Authority and the City of Davenport to bring this new facility to the community.”

Kraft Heinz to Close Seven Plants in North America; Chicago Gets Oscar Mayer HQ; New York Saves Three Plants

The impact of the merger of Kraft Foods and Heinz is landing hard on communities across the map in as the merged company eliminates excess capacity which it doesn’t need.

As part of its third quarter update, Kraft Heinz announced a plan to cut costs by reducing the footprint of its North American operations through the closure of seven manufacturing plants and the consolidation of the Oscar Mayer headquarters to Chicago.

Over the next 12-24 months, Kraft Heinz will shut down manufacturing operations in Fullerton and San Leandro, CA; Lehigh Valley, PA; Madison, WI; Federalsburg, MD; Campbell, NY; and St. Mary’s in Ontario, Canada. This will result in the loss of some 2,600 jobs in total.

The company will also relocate the Oscar Mayer headquarters and jobs from its U.S. meats business to Chicago. Early next year, some 250 Oscar Mayer employees will relocate to the new Kraft Heinz co-headquarters at the AON Center in Chicago.

Earlier this year, Kraft Heinz itself made the move from its headquarters in Northfield, IL to Chicago, signing a long-term lease for five floors covering 170,000 square feet at the AON Center. No Chicago economic development incentives were provided for this relocation.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel said in a release that “Oscar Mayer’s decision to return to Chicago is a reflection of the talent of our workforce, the strength of our world-class transportation networks, and the certainty and confidence we have given businesses that invest in our city.”

Meanwhile, New York State apparently saved a lot more jobs than it may lose through the closure of the Campbell, NY plant. Kraft-Heinz has entered into an agreement, secured by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and Senator Charles E. Schumer, which saves some 1,000 at-risk jobs at three Kraft-Heinz plants in Upstate New York, and reaffirms the company’s commitment with a new investment of at least $20 million.

As a start, the State will also invest $20 million. After five years, if Kraft-Heinz maintains its level of employment and has invested at least $25 million in its Upstate operations, then New York economic development agency Empire State Development will pitch in with another $5 million, bringing the total capital investment into Kraft-Heinz’s Upstate operations to at least $50 million.

The Kraft-Heinz Avon facility, which produces Lunchables and Cool Whip products, employs a total of 405 people and is the largest private sector employer in Livingston County, NY. The agreement reached will not only save the Avon plant and all 405 jobs for at least the next five years, but also includes a commitment from Kraft Heinz to potentially expand in Avon over the next five years and create new jobs.

The Kraft-Heinz Walton facility which employs 141 people and produces cottage cheese and sour cream has likewise been saved from closure and all the jobs protected for at least five years. The Kraft-Heinz Lowville Facility in Lewis County employs 340 people and produces Philadelphia Cream Cheese products. In addition to retaining the jobs in Lowville, Kraft Heinz will add at least 110 new jobs at the Lowville facility over the next five years.

Kraft-Heinz will also work with state, federal and local officials to find a strategic buyer for the Campbell facility before its closure, in order to keep the plant open and retain the 393 jobs. The company has also agreed to offer any employees leaving the Campbell facility first choice for the new positions at the Avon and Lowville plants.

Governor Cuomo said in a release that the prospect of these across the board closures was very real and not only would have been devastated these communities, but caused ripple effects in New York’s dairy industry and beyond. “This agreement reverses course and, saves hundreds of local jobs and commits Kraft-Heinz to invest millions of dollars in the Upstate economy, with the potential for job increases in the years to come,” added Gov. Cuomo.

Supported by a package of Orange County and State of Florida economic development incentives, the expansion will bring approximately $18,700,000 in new investment to the county tax roll, along with 500 new jobs.

The new jobs being created include 100 high-wage pharmacy positions, along with 350 pharmacy technician positions and 50 administrative positions. The result will be an average salary of at least $48,995 for the 500 jobs combined, which is 115 percent of the prevailing $42,604 average salary in the county.

Caremark has had operations in Orange County, FL since 2003. These new jobs and Caremark’s new operations in Orange County will support 10 existing CVS specialty pharmacies in the southeast by providing product and service delivery along with customer and physician consultation.

Patients receive ongoing disease education, counseling, and benefits verification, as well as coordination of care with multiple health providers, comprehensive patient education and adherence management.

CVS Health has 27 such specialty pharmacies that support individuals that require complex and expensive drug therapies. Overall, CVS/pharmacy has over 7,800 retail drug stores in 44 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and Brazil, and is located in 98 of the top 100 drugstore markets.

Woonsocket, RI-based CVS Health is the largest pharmacy health care provider in the U.S., and employs more than 24,000 pharmacists, part of a workforce of over 211,800 employees in 46 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico. They also have a retail drugstore chain in Brazil, and an Information systems development office in Northern Ireland.

In order to secure the Caremark expansion and support their job creation plans, the State of Florida is offering the company $1.5 million in tax incentives ($3,000 per job) under the Qualified Target Industry (OTI) Tax Refund Program.

The Orange County Board of County Commissioners has approved a resolution that commits a total of $300,000 in Orange County economic development funds as the 20 percent local share of the incentive award, and recommending approval of the applicant as a target industry. These steps are necessary in order for an applicant to receive designation as a qualified applicant for the QTI Program.

The announcement of the expansion and job creation by Caremark in Florida will be made at a later date.

Supported by the State of Tennessee, TVA, Wilson County and Lebanon economic development groups, the company will invest $150 million to establish a 500,000-square-foot manufacturing plant in the Cherry Farm Industrial Site.

The company also expects to create 220 jobs at the facility for Lebanon and Wilson County.

Governor Bill Haslam said in a release that “We want to welcome Wonderful Group to Tennessee and thank the company for choosing our state as the location for its first U.S. operations.”

Lebanon Mayor Philip Craighead said they believe that this is further confirmation of Lebanon’s progressive and growing city which offers opportunities for their success and future growth. Wilson County Mayor Randall Hutto said he wants to thank Wonderful Group along with their local, state and regional partners that made this happen.

Tennessee Economic and Community Development Commissioner Randy Boyd noted that this is the largest capital investment made by a Chinese-based project in the state’s history. “We are honored that Tennessee will be home to Wonderful Group’s first manufacturing facility in the country, and I look forward to building a strong relationship with the company in the years to come,” added Commissioner Boyd.

Wonderful Group CEO Jianping Huang said they are pleased and proud to invest in the city of Lebanon and Middle Tennessee. “We appreciate the support received from the state, county and city and look forward to bringing more jobs in the ceramic tile industry to Tennessee,” added Huang.

State incentives for the project haven’t been disclosed, but the company is getting a tax abatement from Wilson County, along with fee waivers from the City of Lebanon.

C. Hixson, executive director of the Joint Economic and Community Development Board of Wilson County, which is a governmental economic development agency, said in the release that “This announcement would not have been possible without the work of our economic partners which include the Wilson County Commission, the city of Lebanon, the state of Tennessee and the Tennessee Valley Authority.”

TVA Senior Vice President of Economic Development John Bradley likewise added that they are pleased to partner with the state of Tennessee, the Joint Economic and Community Development Board of Wilson County, city of Lebanon and Wilson County officials to facilitate Wonderful Group’s location decision.

Toyota Forklifts Plant in Columbus, Indiana Attracts Japanese Supplier

Japan-based specialty manufacturer of industrial machinery components Daiei Giken Kogyo Co., Ltd. announced plans to locate its first North American operations in the City of Columbus, IN.

Supported by state tax credits and Columbus economic development incentives, Daiei will invest $3.35 million to lease, renovate and equip a 7,200-square-foot production facility and a 7,800-square-foot office building.

This facility operated by Daiei Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Japanese parent company, will produce forklift pillars and other related components for Toyota Industrial Equipment Manufacturing, Inc. (TIEM).

Daiei, which currently employs more than 400 associates at its facilities in Japan and China, plans to create up to 10 new jobs at the Columbus facility.

The company’s decision to locate their first North American operations in Indiana follows Governor Mike Pence’s in-person meeting with executives from Daiei in Nagoya, Japan during his seventh jobs and economic development mission.

Gov. Pence said in a release that “Indiana boasts the largest amount of Japanese investment per capita in the country, and today Daiei joins the long list of Japan-owned companies creating new jobs here in the Hoosier State.”

While hosting a reception for Japanese business leaders in Japan, the Governor’s discussions with Daiei executives touched on the company’s interest in locating near TIEM. Columbus officials, who were part of the Indiana delegation, also made the case for the company’s expansion to the city.

Toyota has a large manufacturing campus located about six miles south of downtown Columbus where it produces forklifts. The TIEM campus, which first opened in 1990 and has since gone through at least a dozen expansions, will soon cover over a million square feet, including a recently announced $16 million expansion to build a new national headquarters for its material handling division.

The majority of all Toyota forklifts sold in North America are produced at the Columbus TIEM plant, which has produced more than half a million forklifts in the 25 years since the facility opened.

The TIEM manufacturing facility alone employs about 1,100 workers. Toyota Material Handling USA has another 175 people at the campus, and about 30 more people work for Toyota Industries North America Inc., which shares professional services for all North American entities of Toyota Industries Corp.

James Anderson Kaparakis, production department director of Daiei, said the location in Columbus will offer them convenient access to customers and a workforce that understands their manufacturing needs.

In order to secure the project, the Indiana Economic Development Corporation offered Daiei Inc. up to $50,000 in performance-based tax credits tied to the company’s job creation plans. The Columbus Economic Development Board has recommended the project for additional local incentives from the city of Columbus.

Jim Lienhoop, Columbus City Councilor, said that “City and local economic development officials have traveled to Japan annually for more than thirty years in support of Japanese investment, and I was honored to have the opportunity to help tell the Columbus story to Daiei officials during our recent trip.”

Eli Lilly to Add $70M Building to Indianapolis R&D Headquarters

Continuing a recent spate of R&D investments across the map, Eli Lilly and Company announced plans to add a new $70 million building to their Indianapolis R&D Headquarters.

The new building will add 130,000 square feet to Lilly’s existing complex, to be used for a multi-disciplinary laboratory that facilitates collaboration across multiple research functions.

Upon completion in 2017, the new building will enable organic chemists and engineers to work side-by-side in a collaboration-centric workspace with modeling, analytical and formulation scientists.

This is the company’s fourth such collaborative R&D facility investment this year, following similar announcements in Cambridge, MA; San Diego, CA; and most recently at the at the Alexandria Center for Life Science in New York City.

It also builds on Lilly’s already stellar contribution to Indianapolis economic development, most recently through a $400 million expansion initiated in 2013 to increase its insulin manufacturing capacity.

Jan Lundberg, Ph.D., executive vice president of science and technology and president of Lilly Research Laboratories, said in a release that they are excited to grow their presence in Indianapolis, which is home to their largest global R&D facility and where their research efforts began.

Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) is headquartered in Indianapolis, where the company now has 10,526 employees. The company has 5,822 more U.S. employees, part of a global workforce of approximately 41,122 employees.

Their R&D facilities are located in six countries, and Lilly’s clinical research is conducted in more than 55 countries.

“Evolving our laboratories will position Lilly and its Indianapolis-based scientists to more efficiently discover and develop new treatments that will make life better,” added Lundberg.

Last year alone, Lilly’s R&D expenditures added up to $4.734 billion. Discovering and developing a new drug costs the company $800 million to $1.2 billion on average, and the length of time from discovery to patient is 10-15 years on average.

The new Indianapolis laboratory will focus its efforts on small molecules (treatments typically taken orally) which currently comprise about half of Lilly’s investigational medicines portfolio.

Bret Huff, vice president of small molecule design and development, said that they believe this latest Indianapolis expansion will allow for greater collaboration among Lilly’s small molecule research experts, which will help to further accelerate the development of new medicines within the company’s core therapeutic areas.

“Ultimately, innovation is often tied to where and how we work together, so we wanted to create an environment that could unlock this potential,” added Huff.

Kentucky Economic Development Incentives Support UPS Plans to Triple Louisville Package Facility

UPS is planning to triple the size of its “Centennial” ground package sorting facility in Louisville, KY, and will nearly double package processing rates.

Distinct from the UPS Worldport international air hub, this project will involve an investment of nearly $310 million to expand the size of the UPS Centennial Ground Hub facility in Louisville from 257,000 square feet to 838,000 square feet.

The project will also roughly double the company’s current sorting capacity and add additional sorting automation equipment, including automated conveyor systems, six-sided address label decode tunnels and label applicators. The expansion and investment allows UPS to create more than 300 full- and part-time jobs over the course of the project.

Lou Rivieccio, president of UPS’ Ohio Valley District, said in a release that “UPS has worked with Kentucky economic development officials to be a catalyst for business growth in the area and to link with our air operations as a gateway for global trade, and we are grateful to the Commonwealth for their support of this expansion.”

Governor Steve Beshear noted that UPS understands strategic location as well as any company, and its investment to expand in Kentucky represents a great amount of data, research and confidence in our state as a premier location for business.

Louisville is a vital point in the UPS express network with approximately two million packages moving through the city each day to destinations in more than 220 countries and territories around the world.

The Centennial hub, established in 2008, provides pickup and delivery operations for customers in Louisville and surrounding counties and serves as a transfer point for trailers moving to destinations beyond Kentucky. Its proximity to the UPS Worldport at the Louisville International Airport allows UPS to provide end-of-runway express service to its customers in Louisville and surrounding areas.

Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer added that “This expansion reaffirms UPS’ dedication to the Louisville market and I commend them for their ongoing investment in the next generation of advanced logistics solutions.”

In order to secure the expansion and support UPS’ investment and job creation plans, the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority (KEDFA) has preliminarily approved UPS for $1.75 million in tax incentives through the Kentucky Enterprise Initiative Act. UPS will also be eligible to receive resources from the Kentucky Skills Network for its workforce recruitment and training needs.

Atlanta-based UPS (NYSE: UPS), founded in 1907, was the first private shipping company to serve every address in the lower 48 states. It now serves more than 220 countries and territories worldwide, and generated over $58.23 billion in revenue last year.

Soraa to Establish LED Manufacturing Plant in Syracuse Through SUNY Poly Partnership

Soraa, an industry leader in ultra-high performance lighting and LED technologies, announced that it will open a new semiconductor fabrication plant in Syracuse, NY.

Soraa

Soraa’s current LED fabrication plant is located in Fremont, CA, and its other operations are located overseas. The company will relocate its global manufacturing and research and development operations to the SUNY Polytechnic Hub for Emerging Nano Industries.

The facility’s construction is supported by a $90 million state investment. Soraa’s move to the Hub for Emerging Nano Industries will create at least 420 new high tech jobs in Central New York.

This includes 300 direct, new high-tech manufacturing jobs and 120 research and development support jobs. Soraa is collaborating with SUNY Poly to attract and locate an additional 170 support jobs from Soraa contractors and suppliers at or in the proximity of the facility.

Soraa and solar module manufacturer Silevo were named in 2013 as the first companies with plans to establish manufacturing operations at the Riverbend Commerce Park in Buffalo, NY.

But following the acquisition of Silevo by SolarCity, the facilities at Riverbend could not accommodate both Soraa’s fabrication facility and SolarCity’s expanded operations. This unexpected problem of plenty for Western New York’s clean tech industry meant that it was back to the drawing board for Soraa, and they have now come up with an ideal site location solution by picking the SUNY Polytechnic Hub for Emerging Nano Industries in Syracuse.

Soraa will be physically located in the Collamer Crossing Business Park located directly across from the Central New York Film Hub. Jeff Parker, CEO of Soraa, said in a release that following the change with the Riverbend space, they remained focused on finding an optimal solution that worked for the State, Soraa and the talented workers that call upstate New York home.

“We’re back on track with a great location and are targeting to employ at least 300 people to support a revenue stream of over $1 billion once fully functional,” added Parker.

Governor Andrew M. Cuomo noted that this announcement not only means economic stability for the region, but it also strengthens Central New York as a leader in the development of the clean technology that will help light and power the future.

“Central New York’s economic growth is due in large part to high-tech companies like Soraa that recognize the region’s wealth of assets and resources,” said Gov. Cuomo.

The state’s $90 million investment through SUNY Poly to build and equip an 82,500 square foot state-of-the-art facility will leverage at least $1.3 billion in private sector investment over the next 10 years. Under this innovation driven Upstate New York economic development model, no public funds go directly to a private company as incentives, and the facilities that are attracting companies like Soraa and Silevo continue to remain a state asset.

SUNY Poly President and CEO Dr. Alain E. Kaloyeros said in the release that “By taking Albany’s nanotechnology-based public-private economic development model across New York State, Governor Andrew Cuomo has established an unmatched engine for long-term growth, and this latest announcement is a perfect example of how his jobs-focused strategy continues to pay dividends.”
