incentivesThe News & Observer’s coverage of robotics part maker ATI Industrial Automation’s expansion plan includes this great tidbit:

Don’t look for any press releases from the state announcing that ATI’s expansion plan has made it eligible for financial incentives.

“We have never received anything from the government, and we have no plans on asking for any special treatment,” Little said. “We’re here because the area offers us a talent pool of educated personnel that we need, and we’re appreciative of that.”

It would be nice to see similar sentiments expressed in more stories about local business expansions.
