Unless you work around the block from North Bowl, changes are slim of knocking out a few pins during your break.
But inside the new Turn5 headquarters in Paoli, employees of the ecommerce company for car enthusiasts can chuck personalized bowling balls down a two-lane alley. It’s one of several novel perks offered at the new digs, home to some 400 staffers.
Turn5 kicked off the week by inaugurating the 90,000-square-foot Chester County headquarters with a visit from Gov. Tom Wolf (who apparently is big on Jeeps.)
To build the new HQ, the company received around $600,000 in state grants and credits to stimulate job creation. Over the next three years, Turn5 is slated to hire some 183 staffers, around 50 of them this year. Turn5 itself invested around $8 million in the new site.
“It never felt like Turn5,” cofounder Andrew Voudouris said of the company’s old offices off Phoenixville Pike (and, before that, on Yellow Springs Road). “We’re excited about the new offices because they embody the brand. It was designed for us to be a modern working environment.”
Turn5 runs three websites: American Muscle, Extreme Terrain and American Trucks, each is focused on a specific line of products for vehicle customization.
