25 Sep $1.75 million state tax credit to help Logistics Health double its workforce
La Crosse, Wis. – Gov. Jim Doyle has announced that Logistics Health, Inc., a custom software developer, will receive $1.75 million in enterprise development zone tax credits to help the company create 350 new jobs in La Crosse.
The credit, which would nearly double the company’s workforce, will leverage a $19 million investment by Logistics Health. This investment includes $14 million for the construction of a new building and $5 million for new equipment purchases.
Last year, Doyle announced $4 million in new market tax credits to help Logistics Health build a new 100,000-square-foot corporate facility in downtown La Crosse.
Formed in 1999, the company develops custom software for military medical applications, primary care, occupational health, homeland security, and emergency preparedness services. In addition to private-sector customers, it serves the U.S. Department of Defense and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
Logistics Health is headquartered in La Crosse and has offices in Washington, D.C., Richmond, Chicago, and Atlanta.
The enterprise development zone program provides tax incentives to new or expanding businesses whose projects affect areas with high unemployment. The maximum amount of credits per zone is $3 million.
