MARLTON, N.J. (AP) - A southern New Jersey firm that manages construction projects around the world is planning to move its headquarters to Philadelphia in the latest move in a battle between New Jersey and Pennsylvania for businesses.

Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett announced the move of Hill International Inc., on Monday.

He says the company will move 222 jobs to the city over the next three years and has approval for $1.8 million in grants and tax credits

In a statement, Hill President and CEO David Richter says the company was looking to consolidate its operations.

This year, the Philadelphia 76ers announced plans to build offices and practice facilities in Camden with the help of tax incentives and food maker Dietz & Watson announced it’s moving a distribution center to Philadelphia from New Jersey.
