Economic Development

The Economic Development Department's purpose is to first sustain and then to increase production of goods and services in Pennsauken. This helps to raise the standard of living and the quality of life for the residents and businesses in town. Pennsauken is home to over 1,200 businesses that help maintain a stable tax base. The team works closely with businesses to help them remain healthy, viable contributors to the overall economy of the region.

Economic development is broadly defined and includes job training, as well as redevelopment of areas such as main shopping districts (Westfield Avenue, Route 130) etc.

Pennsauken is one of the best places to locate a business as demonstrated recently by an international company specializing in supplies to the pharmaceutical industry locating their national headquarters in Pennsauken. The Economic Development team works closely with business ventures ranging from the relocation mentioned above to the entrepreneur with a business start up.
