first_img June 06, 2018 Economy,  Jobs That Pay,  Press Release Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf announced that AmerisourceBergen, a global health care solutions provider, has selected Pennsylvania as the location to expand its national headquarters, a move that is expected to create more than 550 new family-sustaining jobs in Montgomery County where the expansion will take place.“This project is so significant not just because one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical distributors is expanding its headquarters here, but because of the magnitude of that expansion,” Governor Wolf said. “This expansion will create more than 550 jobs in IT, management, accounting, and human resources that will provide family-sustaining wages to so many workers in the region and bring a significant boost to the regional economy. Opportunities like this are rare, so to have AmerisourceBergen commit to Pennsylvania for its future growth is truly exciting news. I applaud AmerisourceBergen and welcome them to many more years of success here in the commonwealth.”After evaluating several states as locations for the expansion, AmerisourceBergen selected Pennsylvania for several reasons, including its advantageous location, strong business climate, and talented workforce. AmerisourceBergen will combine two of its offices located in Conshohocken and Chesterbrook and relocate both offices into a new, 400,000-sqare-foot facility in Conshohocken to serve as the new headquarters. The company has committed to investing at least $29.5 million into the project, which is expected to create more than 550 jobs in the next five years at the project site and retain a further 1,902 jobs across the state. The project is also expected to spur further redevelopment and job creation in Conshohocken.AmerisourceBergen received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) for $1,659,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits to be distributed upon the creation of new jobs. The proposal also includes an $8 million grant from the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program to assist with facility development and construction costs. The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team, an experienced group of economic development professionals who report directly to the governor and work with businesses that are considering locating or expanding in Pennsylvania.AmerisourceBergen is a pharmaceutical wholesale distributor that provides value-driving services and business solutions that improve access to care. The company was formed in 2001 following the merger of AmeriSource Health Corporation and Bergen Brunswig Corporation, and employs more than 21,000 employees at more than 150 locations across the globe.For more information about the Governor’s Action Team or DCED, visit dced.pa.gov, and be sure to stay up-to-date with all of our agency news on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

United confirm Moyes appointment

first_img Moyes said: “It’s a great honour to be asked to be the next manager of Manchester United. I am delighted that Sir Alex saw fit to recommend me for the job. I have great respect for everything he has done for the football club. “I know how hard it will be to follow the best manager ever, but the opportunity to manage Manchester United isn’t something that comes around very often and I’m really looking forward to taking up the post next season.” With Moyes committed to concluding the season at Everton, he will not be introduced as United manager until after the campaign is over. “I have had a terrific job at Everton, with a tremendous chairman and board of directors and a great set of players,” he added. “Between now and the end of the season, I will do everything in my power to make sure we finish as high as possible in the table. “Everton’s fantastic fans have played a big part in making my years at Goodison so enjoyable and I thank them wholeheartedly for the support they have given me and the players. Everton will be close to me for the rest of my life.” Having decided to end his near 27-year stint at United this summer, Ferguson quickly came to the conclusion his fellow countryman would be the right man to follow. “When we discussed the candidates that we felt had the right attributes, we unanimously agreed on David Moyes,” said Ferguson. “David is a man of great integrity with a strong work ethic. I’ve admired his work for a long time and approached him as far back as 1998 to discuss the position of assistant manager here.” Press Association The 50-year-old has signed a six-year-contract with the Old Trafford outfit and will join officially on July 1 after completing the season with Everton. Moyes has the backing of Sir Alex Ferguson, who confirmed his retirement on Wednesday, and his first official competitive game will be the Community Shield against either Manchester City or Wigan at Wembley on August 11. center_img Manchester United have confirmed David Moyes as their new manager.last_img read more
