Harrisburg –State Senator Tom McGarrigle (R-26) today applauded the decision by SAP, a global enterprise software company, to team with the Commonwealth to add 150 jobs at its headquarters in Newtown Square, Delaware County.
Additionally, SAP has committed to creating 242 jobs at the company’s Pittsburgh location, adding to its existing Pennsylvania-based workforce of 3,305 employees.
SAP received funding assistance from the state Department of Community and Economic Development that includes a $600,000 Pennsylvania First Program grant and $1,176,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits to be distributed upon creation of the new jobs.
“This announcement is a great example of what can be done when the Commonwealth works cooperatively with committed businesses to create the kinds of good-paying jobs that only the private sector can provide,” said McGarrigle. “I commend DCED and the Governor’s Action Team for working with SAP to create jobs locally and across Pennsylvania.”
SAP is the world’s largest business software company, with over 82,000 employees globally, including more than 18,000 in the United States. Its applications serve small businesses, midsized companies and international organizations. SAP’s applications serve more than 320,000 customers in 190 countries.
