Subsidy Tracker Individual Entry
automobile assembly plant
The subsidy estimate came from: Joseph J. Fucini and Suzy Fucini, Working for the Japanese: Inside Mazda's American Auto Plant (Free Press, 1990), p.23. The job and investment projections came from: Susan Chira, "For Mazda, A U.S. Car Plant," New York Times, December 1, 1984.
The Fucini book reported that the subsidy package included local property tax abatements worth about $80 million plus an unspecified amount of state job training funds. The plant was later run by AutoAlliance, a joint venture of Mazda and Ford which got another large subsidy deal in 2002 (see the entry under AutoAlliance). Ford took full control of the plant in 2012. Overlaps with main Subsidy Tracker data: none.
