On Wednesday, Sept. 29, INEOS Automotive announced plans to locate its new North American headquarters in Wake County.
INEOS Automotive is part of INEOS Group, which produces petrochemical and other chemicals as well as oil products across the globe with operations in 29 countries, employing 26,000 people.
The company plans to begin selling its Grenadier 4x4 utility vehicle in July 2022. They plan to bring 20-25 managerial and professional jobs to Raleigh in the coming year.
“The primary drivers were Raleigh’s diversity of industry, thriving business environment and community, great infrastructure and wonderful 4×4 off-roading opportunities that bring us closer to our customer,” an INEOS Automotive spokesperson told WRAL TechWire.
"Companies around the world know that North Carolina is a place where they can grow and thrive," said North Carolina Governor Roy Cooper. "We are excited that INEOS Automotive will locate its North American Headquarters here in Wake County and that we will be the national home of its flagship vehicle, the Grenadier.”
“International companies often choose North Carolina as the first place to do business when they enter the North American market, “said North Carolina Commerce Secretary Machelle Baker Sanders. “We welcome INEOS Automotive as they select Raleigh for their U.S. headquarters, joining the diverse set of companies in our state that serve the global automotive industry.”
