Navistar's To Keep HQ In Illinois

LISLE, Ill. (AP) -- Navistar International Corp. plans to keep its headquarters in Illinois and will move forward with plans to expand its operations in the state.

Gov. Pat Quinn made the announcement Wednesday at an event in Lisle. Quinn says that means Navistar will create and retain 3,000 permanent jobs and 400 construction jobs over the next several years. The governor credits a recently passed tax credit with keeping the company in Illinois.

The truck and diesel engine manufacturer plans to move its headquarters from Warrenville to Lisle. Quinn's office says Navistar will also relocate its parts distribution center from West Chicago to Joliet.
