Automaker seeking aid to move US offices to Camden, NJ

Subaru plans to move its U.S. headquarters to Camden with the help of New Jersey state tax credits.

The company wants to consolidate about 500 workers who are now in’ three buildings in Cherry Hill and Pennsauken, about four miles from its proposed new home in an office park being developed by the Campbell Soup Co.

The New Jersey Economic Development Authority is expected to consider the tax break at its meeting on Tuesday. The amount requested has not been made public, but was expected to be later Friday afternoon.

Businesses planning moves to Camden have been granted about $500 million in state tax credits under the state’s recently retooled system of incentives for businesses.

The fast-growing Japanese automaker had considered locations elsewhere in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
