German tech firm to open U.S. HQ near Philly airport

German maintenance-technology firm Pruftechnik Inc. has selected Philadelphia for its U.S. headquarters, a move that will create 35 new specialized full-time jobs, according to Gov. Wolf's office.

The company, which supplies high-end testing and measuring systems for industrial maintenance, will lease 9,000 square feet of warehouse and distribution-center space at 7821 Bartram Ave. near Philadelphia International Airport, state Department of Community & Economic Development spokeswoman Lyndsay Kensinger said said in a email Thursday.

Pruftechnik plans to invest more than $1.4 million at the facility, Wolf's office said in a release. It is to receive about $91,000 in state incentives for job creation and employee training.
