The major new facility in Midvale will bring approximately 125 new full time jobs, with full benefits to the area over a 10-year period. To accommodate the growth, the company will make an investment in new facilities.

As a part of this expansion the company will enter into a contract with GOED for an Economic Development Tax Increment Financing (EDTIF) agreement in which the company can earn up to $2,933,645 in post-performance tax credits during the 10 year period.

Mayor JoAnn B.

They bring a global presence to Utah and provide numerous excellent jobs. We welcome this new expansion.”

“This growth incentive program supports our global minerals processing headquarters expansion, which will continue to build the mining and minerals processing industry in Utah,” said Peter Flanagan, FLSmidth executive vice president. “As part of our expansion, we will offer new specialized engineering and technical professional positions. Our engineers develop, plan, design, install and service equipment for our mining customers around the world. We appreciate the opportunity to partner with the State of Utah on this important endeavor.”
