State incentives offered to Wilson Electronics

Wilson Electronics received a post-performance tax credit of $266,312 from the Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) board to expand its plant in Washington County, adding 75 to 150 jobs in the next five years. That credit represents 15 percent of the net taxes Wilson is projected to pay in that time.

The company designs and manufactures amplifiers, antennas and related components that improve cell phone communications and delivery of cellular data. Wilson plans to spend $2.7 million in a facility expansion and the hiring of the additional workers, whose average wage is put at 125 percent of the Washington County mean. Salt Lake Tribune
