Ducey extends welcome to Nike after company says it’s still building Goodyear plant

By Joshua Bowling and Maria Polletta | Arizona Republic 

Nike on Thursday reaffirmed its commitment to build its third U.S. manufacturing plant on the west side of metro Phoenix, bringing more than 500 jobs to Goodyear.

Gov. Doug Ducey on Thursday tweeted the “good news” that Nike is coming to metro Phoenix, saying that “Arizona is open for business, and we welcome Nike to our state.”

The tweet came just more than a week after he said Arizona was “doing fine without Nike” and lambasted the athletic apparel giant for pulling a shoe that featured an early design of the American flag.

Ducey vowed to pull $1 million in state incentives from the shoe giant. The Arizona Commerce Authority also tweeted its welcome.
