The drug wholesaler AmerisourceBergen Corp., which is - and will remain - headquartered in Chesterbrook, said Tuesday that it would add at least 185 employees during the next three years in Conshohocken.
No. 28 on the Fortune 500 list of America's biggest companies, AmerisourceBergen's revenue increased 38.5 percent to $30.3 billion in the quarter ending June 30 compared with the same period a year earlier, primarily because of a 2013 deal to supply Walgreen drugstores and British-based Alliance Boots.
AmerisourceBergen will spend at least $10.3 million to remodel an existing office building along the Schuylkill in Montgomery County.
"Over the past few years AmerisourceBergen has experienced tremendous growth as we execute on our key initiatives," chief executive officer Steve Collis said in a statement issued through Gov. Corbett's office. "In pursuit of continued growth it has become necessary to expand our presence in the Philadelphia area. This will give us the opportunity, in both our new and current locations, to make our associate work experience even more collaborative, rewarding and efficient."
