KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A California corporation will be moving its international headquarters to downtown Kansas City, Missouri.

AutoAlert, a leading automotive software communications company, announced on Friday that they plan to relocate to Missouri and will create as many as 300 new jobs for Missourians. The deal was struck with the Department of Economic Development, and if the company holds up their end of the agreement, it would receive more than $9 million in tax breaks.

Governor Eric Greitens praised AutoAlert for choosing Kansas City from a number of candidate cities. The company cited the recent boom in downtown Kansas City and the surrounding area in their decision making.

AutoAlert plans to announce an office location soon and will be operational by Spring 2017.
