Why Suburban IT Firm Weidenhammer Set Up A Philly Office At WeWork

Center City at Night

The jig is up on why suburban IT company Weidenhammer hosted that happy hour over the summer: the 200-employee firm just set up a beachhead in Center City.

With four full-timers out of a private office at WeWork’s 1601 Market spot, the Reading, Pa.-based company hopes to increase its Philly-proper footprint to 20 staffers over the next two years. Formerly, the multi-service firm worked with Philly clients via its Wayne, Pa., office.

“Rather than put our people through commuting, we thought I’d be easier to be here and take Uber or public transit to visit clients,” said CEO John Weidenhammer. “It also saves employees ‘windshield time‘ and helps them be more productive.”
