NEWARK, NJ (AP) – Mars Wrigley Confectionary bases its headquarters in the United States in New Jersey.
The maker of M & M & # 39; s, Snickers and Skittles announced on Tuesday that it will operate from existing offices in Hackettstown and open a new space in Newark. The company's global headquarters will remain in Chicago.
New Jersey recently approved a 10-year, $ 31 million tax award for the company.
Mars Wrigley says the measure is expected to generate 1,500 jobs in New Jersey. He says he plans to move 113 jobs from Chicago and 370 jobs from Hackettstown to Newark, which should be operational by 2020.
Mars operated in Newark when M & Ms were created as military rations in 1941. The location of Hackettstown opened in 1958 .
