Lehi deal: 1,850 jobs for $15M. State offers Micron, Intel incentive to expand in Utah

Utah has offered its largest economic incentive ever – an estimated $15 million – to high-tech giants Micron Technology Inc. and Intel Corp., which plan under a joint venture to add 1,850 new jobs in Lehi over the next 18 months to two years.

Members of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development Board on Friday unanimously approved the incentive from the state’s tax rebate program, which typically is reserved for companies that have not yet decided where they will expand. The board awarded the incentive even though the two companies’ IM Flash Technologies partnership said months ago it would expand in Lehi.
