South Carolina, Tennessee, and Michigan were all in the running for the location of HUMMER new global headquarters and today it will be announced that HUMMER will create their global headquarters in Southeast Michigan.

To sweeten the deal, the state of Michigan offered the automaker a state tax credit of $20.6 million over 10 years, which is contingent upon GM completing the sale of HUMMER to China’s Tengzhong. On the other side, HUMMER has agreed to invest $9.4 million over 5 years on the project.

The site, expected to be in either the Detroit suburb of Auburn Hills or the city of Detroit itself, will create nearly 1000 Michigan jobs which include up to 300 directly with HUMMER and another 600 or so indirect jobs.
