AutoAlert, a company that deals in automotive software communications, will move its headquarters from California to downtown Kansas City, according to an announcement Friday from Missouri Gov. Eric Greitens.
The company says the move will create 300 jobs for Missourians, according to the governor’s announcement. The state will provide as much as $9.2 million in economic development incentives provided the company creates the promised jobs over a specified timetable.
Greitens said the jobs will be “high-paying tech sector” positions.
AutoAlert CEO Mike Dullea said the company evaluated several major markets before choosing to relocate to Kansas City. He said the company plans to announce a specific office location soon and expects to be operational in the spring.
