Olympus Celebrates Move to Pennsylvania
Olympus held a dedication ceremony Thursday to celebrate the relocation of its headquarters for the Americas to Center Valley, Pa. The event was attended by various Olympus and Pennsylvania government VIPs including Tsuyoshi Kikukawa, president, Olympus Corporation; Mark Gumz, president and chief operating officer, Olympus America Inc; and Dennis Yablonsky, secretary of Pennsylvania’s Department of Community and Economic Development.
The move transports the corporate headquarters roughly 125 miles west from Long Island to Center Valley, where they’ll set up shop in a 337,400 square-foot building in the Stabler Center. Said Gumz, “I would like to thank Governor Rendell for championing Olympus’ relocation to Eastern Pennsylvania.”
For his part, Rendell characterized the move as “proof that our aggressive efforts to create a competitive business environment are paying dividends.” A tax abatement offered by the state is expected to save the company tens of millions before the incentive ends in 2013.
