The facility will be managed by third-party logistics provider GENCO that was recently acquired by FedEx Corp and now operates as a FedEx subsidiary.

Aided by Pennsylvania and York County economic development incentives and site location support, Target is leasing an existing 625,000-square-foot facility that was formerly occupied by American Signature Furniture.

The company will invest $52 million into the project to equip the facility and expand it by around 160,000 square feet. The project, known previously only as Project Pegasus, will receive a 10-year tax abatement for the expansion.

The property owner, 325 Salem Property, LP, has been offered the abatement through the Local Economic Revitalization Tax Assistance (LERTA) program to support the expansion on the site.

York County Commissioners Steve Chronister, Doug Hoke and Chris Reilly issued a statement about the Target project in which they welcome Target’s further expansion into the area, and add that this project will boost the local economy and put to productive use a previously vacant building.

York County Economic Alliance President and CEO Darrell Auterson said they were pleased to assist with the site location and are excited to welcome Target to the York community.

The Alliance is York County’s primary business resource that provides a range of economic development services to facilitate expansions, redevelopment, funding, and workforce development, among other things.

For its part, the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) has additionally offered Target a funding proposal that includes $512,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits and another $115,200 for workforce training under the Guaranteed Free Training program.

Acting DCED Secretary Dennis M. Davin said in a release that they are proud to announce that Target will expand its presence in Pennsylvania and will establish a new distribution site in York County.

The location of the new fulfillment center in York County makes it ideal for fulfilling orders all over the northeast within a day.

Mike Robbins, Target’s senior vice president of distribution, said in the release that they are excited to expand their presence in Pennsylvania, and look forward to serving their guests throughout the state and across the region even more quickly and efficiently from this new online fulfillment center in York County.

Robbins added that with more than 60 stores and a regional distribution center in Pennsylvania, they already serve many Target guests in the state and know that Pennsylvania is a great place to do business.

Minneapolis, MN-based Target Corporation serves customers through 1,790 stores and the online website at Target.com.

Iowa Approves Economic Development Incentives for Rembrandt Foods Expansion

The Board of the Iowa Economic Development Authority has approved tax incentives for an expansion project by Rembrandt Enterprises in Winnebago County, IA.

The company is making a capital investment of $86.5 million into the project for building a large-scale egg processing plant that will allow their Rembrandt Foods division to expand its distribution of egg-protein powder throughout the U.S. and globally.

Rembrandt expects to create 197 jobs as part of this expansion. Governor Terry Branstad said in a release announcing the project that Rembrandt’s expansion will create nearly 200 jobs, opening great opportunities for Iowans to increase their family incomes with these high-quality, good-paying jobs.

Rembrandt Enterprises is a privately held agribusiness and food company that was founded in 2000 and initially headquartered in Okoboji, IA. They now have three divisions, including a pet care business that provides ingredients to pet food manufacturers and a farm nutrients business that provides agronomy solutions to farm owners.

The Rembrandt Foods division produces customized egg products for the food ingredient and food service industry. Rembrandt Foods is now one of the largest egg and egg-ingredient producers in the U.S.

This is the second major project by Rembrandt Enterprises in recent times for which state incentives have been provided. Back in 2013, the company announced plans to relocate their headquarters from Okoboji and an R&D center in Sioux Rapids to the Great Lakes Mall in Spirit Lake, IA.

That $6 million headquarters and R&D center relocation project received direct financial assistance in the form of two loans of $105,000 each, along with $130,000 in tax credits approved by the Iowa Economic Development Authority.

The incentive package for this latest expansion with 197 jobs adds up to approximately $9.7 million in tax incentives. It requires Rembrandt to offer a qualifying wage of $14.86 per hour for the 197 new jobs they will be creating.

The Winnebago County Board of Supervisors is supporting the project by providing $1.6 million through a TIF arrangement.

Apart from the incentives for Rembrandt, the Iowa Economic Development Authority Board also approved $12 million for the City of Waterloo for its TechWorks Campus Reinvestment District plan.

This funding, provided through the Iowa Reinvestment District program, will assist Waterloo’s $74.1 million plan to develop three project areas on land donated by Deere & Company.

One of the projects is a mixed-use development that includes a hotel, industrial incubator, a private-sector lab and manufacturing maker-space, and the John Deere Tractor & Engine Museum. The second project is a marina, and the third one will establish commercial out-lots for restaurants and retailers complementing the other two projects.

Live Oak LNG Announces $2B Plant on Calcasieu Ship Channel in Southwest Louisiana

Live Oak LNG Chairman Martin Houston joined Governor Bobby Jindal at the Southwest Louisiana Entrepreneurial and Economic Development Center (SEED) to announce a $2 billion natural gas liquefaction and export project to be developed on the Calcasieu Ship Channel.

Live Oak LNG, a subsidiary of Houston-based Parallax Energy LLC, will invest up to $2 billion into the project on the west bank of the Calcasieu Ship Channel, located on a 350-acre site due southwest of Lake Charles.

The plant will be constructed with a capacity of up to five million metric tons per year, and will include two storage tanks to hold 130,000 cubic meters of LNG each, along with port facilities with a jetty for accommodating standard LNG carriers.

The Live Oak LNG project is expected to create 100 direct new jobs at the facility once it is operational. These are jobs with an average annual salary of $75,000, plus benefits.

According to estimates provided by Louisiana Economic Development (LED), the project will additionally support the creation of another 385 new indirect jobs in Calcasieu Parish and the rest of Southwest Louisiana.

The company further estimates that there will be an average of 550 people working on the project during the three-year construction phase, with up to 1,000 jobs at peak.

Live Oak LNG Chairman Martin Houston said in a release announcing the project that they greatly appreciate the incentives available and the support of local officials, who he said have already provided a wealth of information to get the project started.

LED started discussions with Live Oak for this project in Oct 2014, and has offered the company a package that includes incentives through the Quality Jobs and Industrial Tax Exemption programs.

Gov. Jindal said in the release that “the global demand for affordable, American-produced liquefied natural gas is on the rise, and Calcasieu Parish is ideally situated to serve that market with its deepwater ports and ready access to natural gas supplies.”

The Calcasieu Ship Channel connects the Lake Charles industrial region to worldwide markets through the Gulf of Mexico.

Southwest Louisiana Economic Development Alliance President and CEO George Swift likewise added that as domestic natural gas production increases, deepwater port access and proximity to one of the major natural gas pipeline hubs in the U.S. are making such projects attractive for developers in Calcasieu and Cameron parishes.

Live Oak LNG has already awarded contracts to Bechtel and Chart Industries for pre-engineering design and process design work, respectively, for the project. Live Oak will be starting the federal permitting process now, and expects to begin construction by late next year, with a target of opening the plant in late 2019.

The projects, totaling $8.6 million, include a multi-community solar power generation project in which VEDA is helping Montpelier, VT-based Helios Solar, LLC buy ten new community net-metered solar array projects across nine different towns.

The projects were all built by All Earth Renewables, LLC and SunCommon, and are being purchased by Helios Solar just before the commissioning.

All told, the ten solar array projects will generate a combined total of 2.3 million KWH of electricity every year. That’s enough clean power to supply 337 average households in Vermont while reducing carbon emissions by 1,348 tons annually.

VEDA has approved $2.1 million for Helios Solar through the Authority’s Commercial Energy Loan Program.

Two tech projects have been approved to receive financing through VEDA’s Entrepreneurial Loan Program. One of these projects is Burlington, VT-based Social Sell, LLC (dba divvi). VEDA is providing the startup $150,000 to help them further develop their ‘divvi’ social commerce mobile app for iOS that was recently launched on the App Store. The company hopes to create ten jobs within three years.

The other tech project approved to receive state assistance is Stowe, VT-based Sterling Valley Systems (dba Inntopia). VEDA is providing then $245,000 to help the company purchase new hardware and software to scale up their IT systems so that they can keep up with increased demand for their technology solutions.

Inntopia, a supplier of destination travel technology booking and reservation systems for call centers and travel marketing websites, already has 54 employees in Vermont and expects this number to grow to 77 within three years of the expansion project.

Apart from these projects, VEDA also approved $1.06 million in financing through the Vermont Agricultural Credit Corporation for agricultural projects. Another $660,000 was approved for small business projects through their Small Business Loan Program, and $214,000 through the SBA 504 Program.

Vermont Economic Development Authority CEO Jo Bradley said in a release announcing the financing approvals that it is exciting to see small businesses with innovative technology products start and grow in Vermont, creating jobs in the process.

Bradley added that VEDA continues to see great interest in their Entrepreneurial Loan Program, and that they are also pleased to see growth in the Commercial Energy Loan Program which helps to finance the development of renewable energy generation projects throughout Vermont.

With local support from the Conway Area Chamber of Commerce and Arkansas economic development incentives, the three companies (Metova Inc., Big Cloud Analytics, and Eyenalyze) are creating 140 jobs and investing a combined total of $2.5 million.

Franklin, TN-based Metova Inc. is a mobile app development company that is creating 60 of these jobs and investing $2.075 million.

Atlanta, GA-based Big Cloud Analytics, which has developed big data analytics technology that enables real-time marketing predictions, is expanding in Conway and plans to create up to 40 new jobs and invest $116,000.

Conway, AR-based Eyenalyze is a startup that provides real time management information from web to mobile for independent restaurants and small chains. They are working with Metova to develop new software, and plan to create 40 new jobs by next year.

In a release announcing these projects, Gov. Hutchinson said that Metova, Big Cloud Analytics and Eyenalyze could have gone anywhere, but these fast-growing companies chose Conway and Arkansas for a reason. The Governor added that these companies know that the city and state are committed to growing with them, not getting in their way.

U.S. Senator for Arkansas John Boozman issued a statement in which he says that “This great investment in the community and the workforce speaks volumes to the efforts of the Conway Area Chamber of Commerce and the Arkansas Economic Development Commission to encourage business growth in our state.”

Both Metova and Big Cloud Analytics are receiving Arkansas economic development incentives that include grants from the Governor’s Quick Action Closing Fund to support their investments, along with sales tax refunds for office renovation spending, and payroll rebates for job creation.

Eyenalyze has been approved by the Arkansas Economic Development Commission to receive a tax credit.

Apart from working with Conway-based Eyenalyze, Metova is also collaborating with the University of Central Arkansas for establishing a wireless engineering degree that will create a pipeline of talent to fill the new jobs they are creating in the area.

The Conway office is Metova’s fifth location that adds to existing offices in Cabot, AR; Franklin, TN; Augusta, GA; and Washington, D.C. This latest expansion is the result of their acquisition of a New Hampshire-based RFID company whose operations they are now relocating to Conway.

Metova Inc. CEO John Adams said in the release that Conway offers them a desirable combination of a skilled tech workforce, a welcoming business environment and great living conditions.

Conway Mayor Tab Townsell affirmed this by noting that this announcement affirms threefold the Conway model for success – quality of place plus quality of workforce. The Mayor added that the promise of a talented workforce in an attractive location drives these types of decisions, rather than logistics and infrastructure.

Big Cloud Analytics’ Chief Revenue Officer Bryan Throckmorton said in the release that the combination of existing talent and new talent emerging through the three universities in Conway makes it an ideal place for them.

Eyenalyze President Michael Rasmussen, CPA, said they’re excited to join these companies in establishing Conway and its downtown as a destination for big-data professionals.

ContextMedia moved into a 33,000-square-foot headquarters in the former IBM building at 330 North Wabash Avenue in April last year, but has now outgrown the space and will once again be expanding this year.

The company builds digital media technologies to deliver lifestyle education to patients with the aim of improving health outcomes. They own and operate a suite of digital healthcare networks, delivering patient education in all 50 states.

ContextMedia was founded in Chicago in 2006 by Rishi Shah and Shradha Agarwal, and has been growing at a fast clip. It is now one of the fastest growing tech companies in Chicago, and has been on the Inc. 5000 list of fastest-growing private U.S. companies for the last two years running.

The company more than doubled its workforce last year and already has 110 employees, and also opened a new office in New York City.

Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and ContextMedia CEO Rishi Shah made the announcement at a press conference that the company is now planning to hire for 200 new jobs this year in Chicago, and expects to add another 400 jobs next year.

Mayor Emanuel said in a release announcing the job creation project that “ContextMedia is a great example of the tech economy we have in Chicago today and the even stronger tech economy we are building for tomorrow.”

The Mayor added that Chicago used to be the flyover city for the tech community, but is now becoming the destination city for the best tech companies and the best tech talent, as the great team at ContextMedia can attest.

Shah likewise said they’re excited to continue growing ContextMedia and demonstrating that world class technology companies are being built and scaled in Chicago.

The two ContextMedia co-founders are also involved in Chicago economic development efforts to support and grow the entrepreneurial ecosystem through an investment fund called Jumpstart Ventures that provides venture capital for startups.

The venture fund was established by the ContextMedia founders as a way of giving back to the community that has enabled their success and fast growth. Back in 2006, the 19-year old Shah found it hard to convince VC funds to invest in the idea and had to bootstrap their startup.

Through Jumpstart Ventures, the ContextMedia founders have already made 38 investments totaling more than $10 million into startups. They also provide incubation space in the ContextMedia offices for the entrepreneur community in Chicago.

These are projects recommended to the TCA Board for review by lead Ohio economic development organization JobsOhio and its regional partners.

These 14 projects are expected to spur about $81.8 million in investment, create 662 jobs and retain 1,739 jobs across Ohio, for a total of 2,401 jobs impacted. The new jobs being created will result in the addition of more than $32.57 million in new annual payroll.

One of these projects is an expansion by a subsidiary of Swiss company Saia-Burgess in the City of Vandalia, OH.

The company’s Johnson Electric facility in Vandalia is creating 100 jobs over the next three years for Vandalia and the Dayton region, and will also enable the company to retain 350 existing jobs in Vandalia.

The $8.175 million expansion project will add 30,000 square feet to the existing 120,000-square-foot facility.

The Hanesbrands Clarksville plant is already one of the world’s largest hosiery knitting facilities with 450 employees.

The company is now investing around $1.5 million and creating 120 new jobs at this plant to add finishing and packaging of hosiery made to be sold in department stores.

This work was previously done offshore for the company by a contractor in Honduras. This reshoring is part of their effort to bring manufacturing of department store and fashion hosiery back to the United States. The finishing and packaging of hosiery which Hanesbrands does for mass retailers like Walmart is already being done at the Clarksville plant.

Hanes worked with the Johnson County Economic Development Corporation and Arkansas Economic Development Commission to reshore the packaging and finishing operations to Clarksville. The two agencies are offering the company a total of $900,000 in local and state incentives for job creation and workforce training support.

The 120 new jobs being created in Clarksville and Johnson County will offer an average annual wage of $39,000, boosting the local economy with a $4.7 million annual economic impact.

Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson, making his first economic development announcement after taking office, thanked HanesBrands for its decision to make this significant expansion in Arkansas.

Gov. Hutchinson said in the release that “As companies continue to bring manufacturing jobs back to the U.S., we are committed to making Arkansas a leader in job creation and manufacturing.”

The Hanes Clarksville plant is also a stable provider of jobs for the community, and an asset in terms of being a green and socially responsible company. More than 85 percent of the plant’s existing workers have been working with the company for at least 10 years.

Winston-Salem, NC-based Hanesbrands Inc. has approximately 55,900 employees spread across operations in more than 35 countries. The company is an EPA Energy Star partner and a member of the U.S. Green Building Council. Hanesbrands was also ranked in Newsweek’s list of the top 500 greenest companies in the U.S.

Clarksville Mayor Mark Simpson said in the release that HanesBrands has been an outstanding corporate citizen in the community for many years, and this expansion will help the well-being of the community and contribute to continued long-term growth.

Travis Stephens, CEO and chief economic development officer for the Clarksville-Johnson County Regional Chamber of Commerce, said that they appreciate the company’s confidence in the local workforce and their substantial commitment to continued growth in the community.

Oregon Economic Development Agency Helping Swanson Group Restart Burned Down Mill

Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber announced state assistance to help rebuild and reopen a fire-ravaged plywood and veneer mill in the City of Springfield, OR.

The Swanson Group Manufacturing plywood mill in Springfield was destroyed by a fire last year in July.

The company is now rebuilding the mill with funding and support provided by Oregon economic development agency Business Oregon.

No one was injured in the fire at the mill, but the 250 workers employed at the facility got laid off.

Around 43 of these workers have since found jobs at the company’s Glendale, OR plywood mill and their other mills in the state. Swanson will furthermore employ up to 190 people at the Springfield mill after it reopens.

Swanson Group Inc. is a family-owned forest products company that was founded in Oregon in 1951. All their raw material is purchased from environmentally responsible sources and the company has been certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative.

The SFI stamp in fiber sourcing means that the company in question is buying raw materials from environmentally and sustainably conscious timberland owners.

After the mill was closed due to the fire, local leaders and the Governor’s Regional Solutions Team immediately offered assistance to help the company rebuild it.

The Regional Solutions Team made sure that permitting issues for rebuilding the mill were quickly resolved. Business Oregon is offering the company $400,000 in funding for the project in the form of a forgivable loan. The loan will be forgiven once Swanson meets specific job creation goals at the facility.

Gov. Kitzhaber, who visited the Swanson mill along with Springfield Mayor Christine Lundberg, said in a release announcing the state assistance for the project that this announcement was a collaborative affair between local, state and private entities with a singular goal to keep Oregonians working.

Mayor Lundberg said in the release that they are very excited that the Swanson Group has chosen to rebuild their mill in Springfield. The Mayor added that they look forward to working with the owners as they begin to rebuild and bring much needed jobs back to their community.

Swanson Group Inc. President and CEO Steve Swanson said that the fire that destroyed the mill last summer has been a huge loss for their company, but they’re very happy to be able to reinvest into Springfield and create good jobs for the community.

Business Oregon Director Sean Robbins noted that Oregon competes on the global stage and companies have the choice to do business anywhere, and added that they are thrilled that Swanson has chosen to rebuild right there at home in Oregon.
