Pennsylvania Governor Corbett: Specialized Medical Company to Relocate Headquarters and Customer Service Center
Date:7/18/2013

HARRISBURG, Pa., July 18, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Governor Tom Corbett announced today ABC Home Medical Supply, Inc. has relocated its national headquarters and customer service center to support its rapid growth in Chester County, resulting in 86 new jobs.

"Supporting Pennsylvania businesses and getting Pennsylvanians back to work is one of my administration's goals," Corbett said. "As a result of the continued support we were able to attract the headquarters and customer service center of ABC Home Medical Supply, bringing 86 jobs to Chester County."

ABC Medical has leased a 13,000-square-foot office in Exton in order to accommodate its anticipated growth and relocation efforts in the state. The company has generated a capital investment of $1 million in renovations, new equipment and employee training and committed to creating 86 new jobs in Pennsylvania.

"We are very grateful to Governor Corbett, the Governor's Action Team and the Chester County Economic Development Corporation for their support in our move to Pennsylvania," Keith W. Jones, Chairman and CEO of ABC Home Medical Supply said. "We would not have been able to relocate our operations to Pennsylvania while executing our growth plan without this funding."

To assist with the company's site selection efforts, ABC Home Medical received a funding offer including a $75,000 Pennsylvania First Program grant, $172,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits and a $38,700 Guaranteed Free Training grant to be used for training its new workforce at the project site.

The project was coordinated by the Governor's Action Team, or GAT, a group of economic development professionals who work directly with businesses that are considering locating or expanding in Pennsylvania, in collaboration with the Chester County Economic Development Corporation.

"We are thrilled that ABC Home Medical has committed to invest and grow in Chester County," Michael Grigalonis of the Chester County Economic Development Council said. "ABC is the type of company that makes Chester County such a special place; they truly care about their community, employees and the disabled population they serve."
