An international manufacturer of lifting and rigging products in Texas was looking to construct a new facility to improve worker safety conditions, increase efficiency, productivity, reliability and quality of product flow within the forging process.
The $54 million facility is anticipated to consolidate operations from a 21-building campus into a single facility. The new site for the facility was a candidate for New Markets Tax Credits (NMTC) given its location in a non-metropolitan area. Upon relation to this new facility, operations would retain 362 jobs and create 50 additional jobs over the next two to three years.
Our client was seeking a total allocation of $36 million in NMTC that would provide the necessary subsidy for this project to move forward.

With our team’s assistance, the new facility project successfully secured more than $36 million in New Markets Tax Credit allocations to fill the project’s financing gap. This would provide a net benefit of over $10.7 million towards the cost of building the new facility.
