Raimondo, Rhode Island Officials Celebrate A.T. Cross Expansion in Providence
Legendary Rhode Island-Based Company Relocates and Expands in Providence, Opens New Storefront at 299 Promenade Street
PROVIDENCE, RI – Governor Gina M. Raimondo tomorrow will join state and local officials to celebrate the ribbon cutting of the new A.T. Cross storefront in Providence. The famed pen manufacturer will expand operations, add jobs, and open this new storefront thanks to incentives and tax credits approved by the Rhode Island Commerce Corporation earlier this year.
“Growing businesses, especially ones with such deep and storied history in our state, is essential to Rhode Island’s comeback,” said Governor Gina Raimondo. “Our tools are working – we’re ending the year on a roll, and we’re not going to take our foot off the gas. We’re going to keep working just as hard in 2017 to keep up this work, support our local businesses, and give Rhode Islanders the economic opportunities they need and deserve.”
A.T. Cross, located in Rhode Island since its founding in 1846, currently employs 105 people and plans to add 35 jobs. The move was made possible by $1.9 million in tax credits and incentives to support the expansion of A.T. Cross in Rhode Island.
