Indiana agreed to give United Technologies $7 million in financial incentives over a decade to persuade the industrial giant to keep roughly 1,000 Carrier jobs in the state, Carrier said Thursday.
Carrier, United Technologies' heating and air conditioning unit, had planned to close a furnace plant in the state and move it to Mexico. Carrier will invest about $16 million in Indiana to keep operations there, a source told NBC News.
In a statement Thursday, Carrier said the financial incentives are "contingent upon factors including employment, job retention and capital investment."
The company said Wednesday that state "incentives" were "an important consideration" for keeping the positions in Indiana. Carrier is still moving 600 jobs from the plant to Mexico, and closing another plant in Indiana that would move 700 jobs, according to the The Wall Street Journal, which first reported the tax breaks on Thursday.
The incoming administration of President-elect Donald Trump, who repeatedly attacked Carrier and other companies for moving jobs out of the United States, negotiated the deal with United Technologies. Vice president-elect Mike Pence is the state's governor.
Trump and Pence are set to appear in Indiana later Thursday. Trump has cheered the deal in tweets since its announcement.
On the campaign trail, he warned of consequences for United Technologies, which gets about 10 percent of its revenue from federal government contracts.
Correction: This story was revised to correct that Vice President-elect Mike Pence is still governor of Indiana.
