eBay to add 2,200 jobs in Utah over 20 years after receiving $38.2 million incentive package
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) ' Online auction house eBay says it will expand in Utah again by building a new facility in Draper that will add 2,200 jobs over 20 years.
The Utah Governor's Office of Economic Development made the announcement Monday after approving a one-time tax incentive package worth $38.2 million.
State officials say the jobs will exceed 125 percent of the average wage in Salt Lake County.
The auction company has existing facilities in Draper and South Jordan that employ about 1,400. The company has had a presence in Utah for 12 years, expanding in 2009 by adding 400 jobs.
The latest deal combines two previous job-based incentives approved in 2009.
