BAE Systems to seek abatement for $8 million project

March 9, 2018 GMT

The Fort Wayne City Council will soon consider a tax abatement request from BAE Systems for an $8 million project. 

According to the abatement application, which will be introduced Tuesday, the project will retain 833 full-time permanent jobs, with an average annual salary of $57,954. It does not appear the project will create any new jobs. 

Documents filed with the City Council indicate BAE plans to install new manufacturing equipment covered under the 10-year tax abatement outline.
