To qualify for the incentives, the company must maintain a minimum base employment of 175 predating the effective date of the agreement and must maintain 180 additional full-time positions over a 36-month period after the effective date of the agreement.
The company must maintain its facility at 402 East Avenue D and lease an additional 6,000-square-foot facility for a second downtown operation.
