A commercial truck manufacturer that announced in January it would open in Buckeye has opted to move to Coolidge, southeast of metro Phoenix, instead.
Coolidge city leaders on Monday unanimously approved an economic development agreement with Nikola Motor Co. that includes several tax breaks.
The zero-emissions commercial truck company currently located in Salt Lake City is expected to bring about 1,800 jobs to Coolidge and another 300 to Phoenix, where it will move its headquarters and open a research and development center.
Company official: About timing
Nikola pivoted to Coolidge to meet a new production deadline to deliver more than 800 trucks, Coolidge City Manager Rick Miller said.
