Subaru Breaks Ground on New Headquarters in New Jersey
Subaru of America recently broke ground on what will become its new $118 million corporate headquarters in Camden, New Jersey.
Subaru of America has maintained its headquarters in New Jersey for close to 50 years and its new 250,000 square foot facility, along with another new building of approximately 83,000 square feet, will more than double the size of its current headquarters.

More than 600 Subaru employees will be making their way to the new headquarters in Camden when the facility is completed in 2017.
A specialized Subaru Outback, with a plow attached, was used at the ground breaking ceremony held on December 9th and other historic Subaru vehicles were also displayed during the ceremony.
“We are very excited to be moving this project forward as we seek to bring our family of employees together on one site,” said Thomas J. Doll, president and chief operating officer of Subaru of America. “This signing cements the long-term future of Subaru in the Delaware Valley and we are pleased that, after almost 50 years here, we can plan to continue to be a part of the local community we have supported for so long.”
Subaru of America’s new headquarters will be neighboring the world headquarters of the Campbell Soup Company.
The entire project is expected to bring a net benefit of $167.9 million and will create 100 new jobs, according to New Jersey Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno.
