Weber Grills will be putting 120 more people to work in Huntley. They're breaking ground on a new distribution center on Route 47, near the I-90 Interchange. The 750-thousand-square-foot facility will allow Weber to consolidate its distribution locations that are now in Texas, Florida, Pennsylvania and Nevada.
About 50 jobs associated with Weber facilities in other states will be transferred to Huntley. Governor Quinn offered the company more than four-million-dollars in incentives to expand in Illniois, rather than in one of the other states.
