SAP, a global enterprise software company, will expand its footprint and create 392 new, high-wage positions in Delaware County's Newtown Square and on Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania’s North Shore.
The company will invest $72.22 million in the project, which includes leasehold and infrastructure improvements and equipment purchases. Additionally, SAP has committed to creating 392 new, full-time jobs statewide over the next three years, 242 jobs at the company’s Pittsburgh location and 150 jobs at its U.S. headquarters in Newtown Square, Delaware County, adding to its existing Pennsylvania-based workforce of 3,305 employees.
“We’re proud to have called the commonwealth home for nearly three decades, and we are excited to continue to expand in Pennsylvania as we grow our workforce and presence in the United States,” said Jennifer Morgan, President, SAP North America. “Our partnership with the commonwealth and the governor’s office is a model for how the public sector and the business community can work together to drive innovation, grow the economy, and create 21st Century jobs in every community across our country. We look forward to continuing to grow and invest in the commonwealth and in many other communities across the United States.”
SAP received a funding proposal from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development that includes a $600,000 Pennsylvania First Program grant and $1,176,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits to be distributed upon creation of the new jobs.
“Pennsylvania’s nearly 300 colleges and universities each year add highly skilled graduates to our labor force of more than 6.5 million, which is of great benefit to the commonwealth’s growing register of technology companies,” said Governor Tom Wolf. “I’m pleased that SAP has decided to make the most of this invaluable resource, I look forward to the company’s continued growth and success in the years to come.”
