HARSCO Moves to Philadelphia
Another corporation that has been a mainstay in the area is leaving for Philadelphia. Following the departure of Rite Aid, HARSCO will bid goodbye to Camp Hill as it moves its world headquarters from 350 Poplar Church Road in Camp Hill to Logan Square in Philadelphia.
The global industrial company, which employs about 12,000 people and has been in the Harrisburg area since the 1850s, announced plans to move 100 employees from Cumberland County to downtown Philadelphia where it leased 22,550 square feet at Logan Square. The company already has a presence in the Philadelphia area. In 2020, it completed a $462.5 million acquisition to buy Stericycle Inc.’s environmental solutions business, which had been located in Horsham.
Nick Grasberger, Chairman and CEO of Harsco Corporation said, "We have traveled a long and exciting road, and we are enthusiastic about writing the next chapters in our story as we move our corporate headquarters to Philadelphia. We are confident that this move to America’s sixth largest city will provide us with more options to the future resources needed to fuel our growth including a strong infrastructure, a much larger and diverse talent pool, and closer proximity to our customers and federal government agencies.”
The majority of employees have been offered jobs in Philadelphia, while a small group of Reed Minerals employees will remain in Camp Hill, according to Jay Cooney, Harsco’s Chief Marketing and Communications Officer.
It’s estimated that the move will be complete in January, 2023.
