Navistar International Corp. has announced plans for a new testing facility at its plant in the Chicago suburb of Melrose Park.

Navistar leaders said Friday that they plan to invest up to $90 million in the 80-acre campus over the next few years.

Last month, the company said it will keep its headquarters in Illinois and move forward with plans to expand its operations in the state. The truck and diesel engine manufacturer plans to move its headquarters from Warrenville to Lisle.

Officials say the projects in Lisle and Melrose Park will create and retain 3,000 permanent jobs and 600 construction jobs over the next several years.

The Melrose Park plant was built in 1941 and originally used by Buick to build military bombers.
