Dinniman Announces Almost 200 New Jobs in Chester County
WEST CHESTER March 30, 2017 – State Senator Andy Dinniman announced today that Turn5, Inc., an e-commerce business in Chester County will expand operations at a new headquarters facility in Tredyffrin Township, an expansion expected to create 183 new jobs over the next three years.
“Chester County has a long tradition of homegrown startups that began in residents’ garages and basements and thrived into world-class companies,” Dinniman said. “Turn5 is only the latest that is committed to doing more business, creating more jobs, and continuing to grow here in Chester County’s Route 202 high-tech corridor.”
Outgrowing its current headquarters in Malvern, Turn5 plans to lease a new headquarters facility at 600 Cedar Hollow Road, Tredyffrin Township. Turn5 plans to invest $7,906,000 in the expansion project. Additionally, the company has committed to the creation of 183 new, full-time jobs over the next three years, and to the retention of 301 existing Pennsylvania employees.
“Andrew and I started our business in southeastern Pennsylvania—in our parents’ garage in fact—and we’ve been proud to grow here over the last 15 years,” said Steve Voudouris, CEO and founding partner of Turn5, which specializes in parts for Jeep Wranglers and Ford Mustangs. “We look forward to bringing more jobs and more economic development to the region as we continue to serve the auto enthusiast market with our phenomenal team.”
Turn5 received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development that includes a $200,000 Pennsylvania First Program grant, $45,000 in WednetPA funding for employee training, and $366,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits to be distributed upon the creation of the new jobs.
“Success in economic development involves being proactive in seizing opportunities to create jobs and investment in our region,” Dinniman said. “I will continue to work to promote and advance policies and programs that support and retain existing jobs, while attracting new employers and companies to our region.”
Founded in 2003, Turn5, Inc. is an award-winning e-commerce business that provides aftermarket auto parts, content, and customer service through the two, separately-branded e-retail stores, www.AmericanMuscle.com and www.ExtremeTerrain.com. Turn5 job openings are available on the company’s website.
