GWC Warranty Unveils New Corporate Headquarters

WILKES-BARRE, PA--(Marketwire - May 9, 2011) - GWC Warranty's Corporate Headquarters were unveiled to the public at a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony to mark the occasion on April 27, 2011. GWC's relocation to Coal Street Park in Wilkes-Barre has transformed 16,500 square feet of empty commercial space into a state of the art facility for business and training purposes. The Ribbon Cutting ceremony drew approximately 150 people, consisting of state local officials, project developers, and GWC employees.

"We're delighted to welcome everyone to our new headquarters," said GWC Warranty President and CEO Rob Glander at the ceremony. "This incredible facility reflects the GWC standard of excellence that our automobile dealers and drivers have come to expect from us. It represents both our past success and our future aspirations."

The facility consists of 60 Open Office workstations and 12 private offices, as well as a Reception Lobby, Boardroom, two conference rooms, and a multipurpose room which accommodates approximately 75 people for seminars and high-level training sessions. GWC continues to house its Claims Administration, Contract Processing, and Executive Offices in one location.

The move to Wilkes-Barre is the fourth for GWC since its inception, and every move has reflected the company's growth and development. The latest relocation is the company's most significant yet, and it poises GWC for even greater expansion. Coal Street Park was designed by the City of Wilkes-Barre with the intention of attracting the caliber of business such as GWC Warranty. Presently, the facility houses GWC Warranty, the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins hockey team's corporate offices, and a public indoor ice skating rink for public programs and the Penguins' hockey practice sessions. GWC has signed a long-term lease agreement with the City of Wilkes-Barre, bringing both jobs and tax revenue to the city.
