SACRAMENTO – Today, Assemblyman Curt Hagman (R-Chino Hills) responded to the news that Trident Case, a company that manufactures cases for mobile devices, will be moving up to 75 percent of its manufacturing operations from its facility in China to its new facility in Rancho Cucamonga, creating dozens of new jobs in San Bernardino County.
“I am thrilled that Trident Case has responded to our efforts to incentivize manufacturing in our state,” stated Assemblyman Hagman. “This move is evidence that tax relief is the answer for manufacturing job growth in California. We need to keep working to create incentives so other companies will make similar moves,” added Hagman
The move by Trident Case is in part due to manufacturing tax credits included in SB 90, a bi-partisan bill that legislative Republicans – including Assemblyman Hagman – negotiated with Governor Brown and passed in July. One of the most significant provisions of SB 90 doubled the length of the manufacturing sales tax exemption to eight years statewide.
