GOODYEAR, AZ — Just do it, in Goodyear.

Nike subsidiary Air Manufacturing Innovation, the maker of Nike Air shoes, plans to open a multimillion-dollar facility in Goodyear, which will employ at least 505 people in full-time manufacturing roles.

According to city documents, Nike will buy an existing building and invest at least $184.5 million in the first phase of the new facility. The company anticipates starting operations in 2020, and over the course of three years will fully put the Goodyear facility into service by adding lines and operations.

Documents do not show where the existing building is located within the city. Goodyear City Council members are expected to vote on the proposed agreement at Monday night's meeting.
