Sources at the S.C. Department of Commerce have confirmed to FITS that the Palmetto State is likely to compete for a North American Infiniti plant, although they downplayed recent mainstream media reports portraying the state as a frontrunner.
“We will be in the mix (for Infiniti) but as you know with deals like this there is no guarantee,” our source said. “We have as good a shot as any other state.”
Details of South Carolina’s effort to land the Nissan Motor Co. manufacturing facility – including the size of its taxpayer-funded incentive package – are “still in the embryonic stages” our source said, although they quickly added “we will be competitive on incentives.”
Of course we will … after all, forcing existing businesses and taxpayers to subsidize such corporate giveaways is the new modus operandi in South Carolina.
Anyway count on FITS to keep our readers up to speed on the latest developments as the battle for Infiniti gets underway …
