RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - North Carolina officials say Advance Auto Parts will relocate some top managers and support jobs to Raleigh and employ 600 workers at a corporate support center by the end of 2017. Gov. Pat McCrory's office said Wednesday the Roanoke, Virginia, based company could get more than $17 million in tax breaks over 12 years if it meets hiring and investment targets. The average salary for the jobs will be about $110,000 a year. Advance Auto Parts in January completed its purchase of Raleigh-based General Parts International Inc., creating North America's largest auto aftermarket parts supplier. Advance Auto Parts Chief Executive Officer Darren Jackson said Raleigh will join Roanoke as a major site for corporate operations. Copyright 2014 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.
