State officials say a concrete manufacturing company is moving its North America headquarters to Illinois from Virginia and will create up to 100 jobs. Lafarge North America will invest $10 million in Illinois. It is one of the largest concrete manufacturing companies in the country and already has some workers in Illinois. Lafarge CEO John Stull says the factors in their decision were location in the Midwest and area transportation. Officials say the relocation will create about 90 jobs in the first two years in the Chicago area.
