Bring Navistar World Headquarters to Lisle

February 25, 2010 at 8:26 pm

On Thursday, March 4th, Navistar filed an amended relocation plan with the Village of Lisle proposing to invest $100 million to establish its World Headquarter along I-88.  View the full plan here.

Visit our Action Center to send a message of support to the DuPage County Board and Forest Preserve District Representatives.

Now is the time to show support for a company that’s trying to do the right thing by moving its World Headquarters to Lisle.  This move is critical to our economy, and Navistar has a solid track record of working with its neighbors and promoting sound environmental practices.  To reject this plan will ensure that other businesses stay away from the once vaunted I-88 tech corridor.

Why Support Navistar?

  • There will be 3,100 full-time workers at the Navistar World Headquarters with the potential to grow to 4,150.  Of that 3,100 —  1,400 are jobs retained by DuPage County, 1,700 are jobs new to DuPage County and 800-1,000 are jobs new to Illinois.
  • Navistar will create hundreds of jobs in construction as it builds out the campus for its future needs.
  • Navistar’s plan is what our economy needs.  Illinois unemployment is among the highest in the nation.  Navistar is trying to build a World Headquarters and Integrated Product Development Center, a source of pride for most cities, and keep good-paying jobs in the United States.
  • Being at the forefront of good environmental practices and technology has long been a Navistar priority, that’s why the company has won more than 100 awards for its environmental commitment.  But under the rules set up by Navistar’s opponents, many businesses in Lisle should not be allowed to operate.
  • Navistar has a long history of being a good neighbor and will work with the community.
  • If this plan is rejected, other companies will see there is no longer a commitment to the I-88 tech corridor and that good corporate citizens are not recognized or valued.

Keep checking back for updates and information on how you can help support Navistar in their bid to bring jobs and tax dollars to our region.
