B.J. Alan moving into former Delphi plant in Warren



Published: Mon, July 11, 2011 @ 2:21 p.m.

YOUNGSTOWN

The B.J. Alan Co. is moving the bulk of its Youngstown operations to the former Delphi Packard plant along North River Road and Larchmont Avenue in Trumbull County.

The bulk of B.J. Alan’s employees in Youngstown will move to the Trumbull County facility. But, the fireworks firm said it will keep its wholesale business, sales to other retailers and its Phantom Fireworks manufacturing facility at its Martin Luther King Boulevard facility. Also, its showrooms in Youngstown and Beaver Township will remain open, company officials said.

The move to Trumbull County is expected to take place before the end of the year.

You could say that business in Warren will be "booming". You could go so far as to say it will now "skyrocket".

But what about Youngstown and Mahoning County? The bulk of the workers will move to Trumbull County. Won't there be lost taxes for Youngstown?

Trumbull county welcomes the new relocated business and use of reclaimed Delphi property. Another example of Mahoning commisioners not paying attention to detail (ignoring tax abatement request). They must have been trying to save money for earthquake insurance for Oak Hill. Also fitting all Trumbull employees, especially corporate employees, will save the paying Youngstown 2.75% income tax. Oh, well, the old water czar could care less now.

The income tax savings is less than being touted. Warren has an income tax and a recipricol agreement with Y'town.

I stand corrected, carlstataatz is correct. There is no income tax out there. Good for the employees, bad for Y'town

How long will the City be able to function without the income tax paid by the business. Is the Meridian Road location in the city because they had to have their business there for something with the firework operation?
