Nuclear power plant components company Holtec International could get up to $260 million in tax credits over 10 years by meeting its requirements, including bringing 295 jobs to the facility.

The company says it intends to bring around 3,000 jobs to Camden eventually, many of them in manufacturing — something that could be a boon for a city that's among the nation's most impoverished.

But officials say the deal with structured with a lower number partly so the company could qualify sooner for tax credits.

Holtec now has its headquarters in nearby Evesham.
