Evansville City Council approved a tax abatement on Monday night during EnCom Polymers.
Encom polymers has been in the Tri-State for 17 years producing plastic for several industries and plans to expand its headquarters while adding almost 60 new jobs.
“Any time we can get a company that’s willing to come to Evansville and provide the jobs and benefits they’re providing, it’s really a no brainer,” said City Councilman Jim Brinkmeyer.
The council approved the company’s tax abatement 9-0.
EnCom will also receive grant money for every Evansville resident it hires over the next two years.
