On April 9, 2019, developers and officials celebrated the groundbreaking of Sora West, AmerisourceBergen’s new global corporate headquarters in Conshohocken. The 11-story, 429,122 square foot office building is being built by INTECH Construction.
SORA West’s groundbreaking marks what is appearing to be a boom in commercial development and construction in Conshohocken. Last year, Gov. Tom Wolf announced that AmerisourceBergen had selected Conshohocken as the location for its national headquarters with the construction of SORA West.
In a press release, Wolf noted: “This project is so significant not just because one of the world’s largest pharmaceutical distributors is expanding its headquarters here, but because of the magnitude of that expansion. This expansion will create more than 550 jobs in IT, management, accounting, and human resources that will provide family-sustaining wages to so many workers in the region and bring a significant boost to the regional economy. Opportunities like this are rare, so to have AmerisourceBergen commit to Pennsylvania for its future growth is truly exciting news. I applaud AmerisourceBergen and welcome them to many more years of success here in the commonwealth.”
