Engine and vehicle maker Navistar International Corp. has officially opened its new headquarters in suburban Chicago. According to an Associated Press report, the company said Thursday (Feb. 2) that more than 3,000 people will work at the location in Lisle.
Navistar began moving employees into the campus last year as it moved its headquarters from Warrenville to Lisle.
The state of Illinois provided the company with about $65 million in tax breaks after it agreed to keep its headquarters in Illinois rather than move it to potential sites in Alabama, Texas or South Carolina.
Navistar also consolidated some jobs that had been in Fort Wayne, Ind., at the Lisle campus.
The 87-acre location formerly belonged to Alcatel-Lucent but sat vacant for some time before Navistar began moving in last year.
