Subaru is Moving to Camden
Subaru of America has been proud to call the Delaware Valley our home since 1968. Over that time, as our business has grown, we have needed to relocate our headquarters on three occasions: first we were based in Bala Cynwyd, Pennsylvania; shortly afterward we moved to Pennsauken, New Jersey, where we stayed for 20 years before moving to our current location in Cherry Hill, New Jersey, where we have been for almost 30 years.
As those numbers show, we like our location here in South Jersey, and we intend to stay for many more years to come.
Our business has seen unprecedented growth now for almost a decade and as we have grown, so have our needs and the needs of our employees. This move to Camden consolidates four separate facilities in South Jersey onto one campus. Just as importantly, it puts our 700 regional employees all together for the first time. In doing so, we can improve our work efficiency and communications, which are vital components for our continued growth.
This region is where many of our employees were born. It’s certainly where most have raised a family. And, just as importantly, it’s where most spend their money; in fact, our employees spend around $1 million per year within 3 miles of where they work.
We are very pleased to be moving to the City of Camden for the next stage in our development. We want to be in on the ground floor for the amazing redevelopment of the Camden area. We want to be part of it as a catalyst and a contributor. We know that our presence in Camden will only encourage other businesses to come and to invest in the area.
In moving to our new Camden headquarters, we also want to make sure we keep our unique Subaru family workplace atmosphere, culture, and values — the things that make us who we are. We know that this is also a vital part of our business.
We certainly love (because after all, love is what makes Subaru Subaru) that we can be part of Camden’s regeneration. And we promise to be good neighbors to the city and its residents. This is part of our “Love Promise,” a promise to do the right thing, a promise to support the communities in which we live and work.
We look forward to the coming day when we call Camden home.
