Illinois Governor Pat Quinn on September 8 announced that Navistar International Corporation will keep its headquarters in Illinois and is moving forward with its plans to expand its Illinois operations, which will create and retain 3,000 permanent jobs and 400 construction jobs over the next several years.

Navistar's $205 million investment will help the truck and diesel engine manufacturer relocate its headquarters from Warrenville to Lisle and assist with upgrades to an existing manufacturing and research and development facility. In addition, Navistar will make a significant investment to relocate its parts distribution center, currently located in West Chicago, to Joliet.
