Companies Continue to Favor Greater Philadelphia

The international packaging company, MPS Systems, is in the process of relocating their North American headquarters from Green Bay, Wisconsin to Levittown, Pennsylvania. The deciding factor was Levittown’s proximity to many major cities.

“We have found a brand-new location ideally located between Philadelphia and New York City, providing more travel flexibility than our current North American home in Green Bay,” said Harm-Jan de Jong, Vice President of MPS Systems North America.

MPS opened its first North American facility in 2015 and moved again in 2017.

“Over the years, our North American organization has grown considerably, and now it’s time for a new chapter,” said de Jong.

The relocation is expected to be completed by the end of January 2020 and indicates a trend of world companies positioning offices in our region, finding Greater Philadelphia a great place to do business. A few months prior, Eastern Air Lines moved its headquarters from North Carolina to an approximately 18,000-square-foot space in Wayne, Pennsylvania.
