Bentley Systems, the international infrastructure modeling software company with headquarters in Exton, will open an office in Philadelphia that could grow to as many as 50 people in as quickly as two years.
Tomorrow evening, Mayor Michael Nutter is planned to welcome the suburban company, as well its top leadership, to the city proper by cutting the ribbon on the Center City office space and offering remarks. No specific timeline was provided in a press release, though more will surely come from this.
Following the Mayor, Bentley CEO Greg Bentley will comment on bringing Bentley to the city.
The company has locations in 45 countries, almost 3,000 employees, and brings in more than $500 million in annual revenues, according to a release. The new Philadelphia office will be the company’s second site in Pennsylvania and expect to employ about 50 staff over the course of the next two to three years, according to a Mayor’s office spokeswoman.
Update: The Inquirer’s Joe Distefano notes in the comments that he featured the initiative here.
Bentley is also simultaneously holding the Be Together: Bentley User Conference, which starts today at the Pennsylvania Convention Center and runs through Thursday.-30-
