The San Antonio Business Journal reports a rezoning application associated with the project was filed with the city of San Antonio requesting heavy industrial uses that would allow for the “manufacturing of construction/agricultural equipment and related activities” on two parcels along Highway 16.
A San Antonio economic development group claims the impact of JCB’s San Antonio project is expected to approach $30 billion. The company says JCB expects to hire more than 1,500 employees for the facility over the first five years.
The site under consideration by JCB is not far from Navistar’s San Antonio truck manufacturing facilities.
