The Transportation Management Association of Chester County (TMACC) continues to grow its membership with the addition of Saint-Gobain, the world’s largest building materials company.
Saint-Gobain is relocating its North American corporate headquarters to 20 Moores Road in Malvern, Pa. in Fall 2015, which coincides with the celebration of the company’s 350th anniversary. The company is transforming an existing campus into a LEED-certified facility for Saint-Gobain and its North American construction materials subsidiary, CertainTeed Corporation – both of which are currently headquartered in Valley Forge. In addition to the regular benefits members receive, TMACC will be conducting a Commuter Shed Analysis for the company in order to explore ways to create positive change in the commuting patterns of more than 800 employees who will be commuting to the new headquarters.
“Saint-Gobain employees will experience the material difference of working in a sustainable work environment that leverages our extensive portfolio of building materials, and we are looking forward to partnering with TMACC to explore transportation options for how employees will get to and from the new headquarters that are in sync with how the headquarters has been designed,” said Susan Nutson, Senior Vice President of Human Resources at Saint-Gobain. “We believe that we can create a better place for employees to work by providing them with alternative transportation options, whether that be through carpooling or mass transit, that not only help them avoid fluctuating gas prices and traffic congestion, but also reduce pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.”
The Commuter Shed Analysis provides a detailed evaluation of the areas where employees reside to see how they are commuting to work. The analysis also provides a way for employers to encourage carpooling and vanpooling among employees, exactly what Saint-Gobain is looking to accomplish. Saint-Gobain employees will also have the ability to take advantage of carpooling programs, such as Share-A-Ride, with TMACC now.
