Governor Wolf Announces Creation of 65 New Jobs Through Expansion of EY Intuitive Facility in Philadelphia
July 05, 2017
Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf announced EY Intuitive, a digital design and software group, will continue to invest in Pennsylvania by expanding its facility in the Manayunk section of Philadelphia, creating 65 new jobs.
“I applaud EY Intuitive for creating 65 high-paying jobs to Philadelphia and laying the groundwork for future growth in Pennsylvania,” said Governor Wolf. “The expansion of this facility is just another example of a company recognizing that Pennsylvania is the best place to grow a business in the tech sector.”
To meet growing demand, EY Intuitive, a division of Ernst & Young LLP, will expand at its current facility in Manayunk. The company has committed to investing at least $4 million on the expansion project including tenant fit-out and IT upgrades.
“EY looks forward to continuing our work with the commonwealth to assist with various digital design projects and the additional office space we announced today will give us the type of facility we need to provide more initiatives for the state,” said Megan Hobson, partner, Ernst & Young LLP.
EY Intuitive received a funding proposal from the Department of Community and Economic Development for a $200,000 Pennsylvania First grant and $130,000 in Job Creation Tax Credits to be issued after the new jobs are created. The project was coordinated by the Governor’s Action Team, an experienced group of economic development professionals who report directly to the governor and work with businesses that are considering locating or expanding in Pennsylvania.
EY Intuitive provides digital design, research, and strategy services. Ernst & Young is a global assurance, tax, transaction, and advisory services company that helps build trust and confidence in capital markets and economies across the world.
