ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – A New Mexico company is adding 50 new high paying jobs and Governor Susana Martinez says state incentives helped.
Vitality Works is an Albuquerque manufacturer that makes natural health and dietary products.
Workers make anywhere from 30,000 to 100,000 a year.
Governor Martinez says when the company profits they reinvest to keep on growing in New Mexico.
“The company exports 99.5% of their product out of state and exporters are the type job creators that we want to attract state. They are bringing dollars and investments from out of state and are expanding our economic base,” Governor Martinez said.
In February, the economic development department gave Vitality Works more than $53,000 to help hire and train workers. It’s known as Jit money.
The company also benefits from state incentives and tax reforms.
The Governor says the credits help make New Mexico more competitive.
Last year New Mexico lost about 3,700 jobs.
