Mars world HQ will remain in Chicago

NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — Mars Wrigley Confectionary is basing its U.S. headquarters in New Jersey.

The maker of M&M’s, Snickers and Skittles on Tuesday announced it will operate from existing offices in Hackettstown and open a new space in Newark. The company’s world headquarters will remain in Chicago.

New Jersey recently approved a 10-year, $31 million tax enticement for the company.

Mars Wrigley says the move is expected to bring 1,500 jobs to New Jersey. It says it plans to move 113 jobs from Chicago and 370 jobs from Hackettstown to Newark, which should be operational by 2020.

Mars operated in Newark when M&M’s were created as military rations in 1941. The Hackettstown location opened in 1958.
