Chicago-based Allscripts (Nasdaq: MDRX) will expand operations and add 350 jobs at its Six Forks Road location in Raleigh, the company announced Wednesday.

Allscripts, which provides health data services, committed to the expansion in exchange for $5.9 million in state incentives that the Commerce Department’s Economic Investment Committee approved Wednesday ahead of the announcement.

The incentives include a $5.3 million Job Development Investment Grant, which provides rebates on payroll tax withholdings to employers based on the number of jobs created and other negotiated terms.

North Carolina was competing with Chicago for the Allscripts expansion. Chicago and Illinois combined offered more than $9 million in incentives.

“Allscripts is a premier employer that sees the value in what Raleigh and North Carolina have to offer,” Gov. Pat McCrory said in a statement.  “Its expansion is proof that the Triangle’s technology hub continues to grow. We’ve got the qualified talent, strong business climate, and attractive quality of life that Allscripts and its employees need to succeed.”

Allscripts said it will invest $2.8 million in its existing facility, and the average wage of the new hires would be $74,800.

The company currently has 1,264 full-time and part-time employees in North Carolina.

The expansion will allow Allscripts to consolidate five engineering centers across the country, according to staff who briefed the committee.

Raleigh Mayor Nancy McFarlane, who joined McCrory for a 3 p.m. news conference at the company’s Six Forks Road location, praised the decision.

“The combination of healthcare and technology that Allcripts combines so well to offer healthcare clinical, financial, connectivity and information solutions to hospitals and physician practices is a perfect fit for Raleigh with its highly educated, tech savvy population and excellent medical facilities,” she said in a statement. “It is great to know that Allscripts will continue for years to come to be an even bigger corporate presence in our city.”

Allscripts and Raleigh-based Misys merged in 2010 in a deal valued at over $1 billion.

In other economic development news Wednesday, ASMO Greenville of North Carolina announced it will expand its manufacturing operations in Pitt County with 200 new jobs in the next three years.

ASMO, which produces automotive technology, systems and components, plans to invest $50 million in its Greenville location, where it currently employs more than 530 workers.

“We very much appreciate the support from the state of North Carolina, Pitt County and the City of Greenville,” Takashi Akai, president of ASMO Greenville, said in a statement. “We are committed to remaining a market leader and continue to manufacture products in eastern North Carolina. Our expansion will require highly skilled associates, and we look forward to strengthening our ties with Pitt Community College to provide the training needed for the future.”

The expansion will allow for more assembly lines and die cast machines for product lines, which are used by Toyota, Honda, Ford, Chrysler, General Motors, Hyundai, Kia, Nissan and BMW.

The average annual salaries for the new jobs will be $34,628, which is slightly higher than the average wage in Pitt County of $33,769.

The company was also awarded a Job Development Investment Grant and other incentives worth about $1.5 million.
