Gov. Pat Quinn says the American Aluminum Extrusion Co., an aluminum extruder and fabricator based in Beloit, Wis., is investing $7.5 million to open a plant in the Winnebago County town of Roscoe. Quinn says the plant is expected to employ 130 people.

The Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity is administering the state’s $748,000 business investment package in the facility.

Quinn said Thursday the company’s decision relied heavily upon the recent extension of the Illinois Jobs Recovery Law.

American Aluminum manufactures custom aluminum extrusions for customers in the transportation, consumer durable and building and construction markets that are located within a 500 mile radius of the company’s headquarters in Beloit.

    Well just look at that…
    Taxes go up. Republican governors in states with still higher taxes (I’m looking at you WI and NJ) freak out and try to lure away IL businesses.
    Businesses are smarter than that and choose IL over NJ and WI for their expansion.
    Numbers don’t lie, republicans do
