Subsidy Tracker Individual Entry
The subsidy value and the job and investment projections came from: Christopher Bell, "Alabama offers Mercedes-like Deal to lure Decatur steel plant," Huntsville Times, January 5, 1995.
Trico--at the time of the deal a joint venture of LTV, Sumitomo Metal Industries and British Steel--received property tax abatements, free land, state income tax credits, job training funds and other subsidies. As it headed for bankruptcy in 2001, Trico closed the mill, which was sold to Nucor. Overlaps with main Subsidy Tracker data: none.
