Olympus Moving HQ

MELVILLE, N.Y. — Olympus confirmed plans to shift its U.S. headquarters and distribution center from its offices here to Upper Saucon Township, Pennsylvania. The move is slated for August 2006 and was spurred by cost-savings and an expired lease on the company's Melville facilities. A tax abatement from Pennsylvania, which Olympus said represented "tens of millions of dollars" of savings tipped the scales in favor of Lehigh County. Olympus will offer all 840 employees "in good standing" an opportunity to make the move.
