Manufacturing and Industry
For over 50 years, PIDC has been a champion of manufacturing and industry, helping to provide financing and real estate to support the next phase of industrial growth in Philadelphia.
The industrial sector
Philadelphia’s industrial sector consists of traditional and not-so traditional manufacturing, regional and national distribution, warehousing, logistics, and transportation companies. Industrial businesses account for one in every five jobs in Philadelphia and $1.3 billion in wages annually. Industrial and manufacturing businesses benefit from the centralized location, advanced infrastructure, abundant workforce, and competitive operating costs of Philadelphia to help make, move, or mend their products.
For over 50 years, PIDC has been a champion of industry, helping to provide financing and real estate for the next phase of industrial growth. We support your business growth with flexible capital in the form of senior or subordinate term loans, and we offer real estate acquisition and development opportunities at The Navy Yard and citywide. Through our strong partnerships with government and other economic development organizations, we can also help connect you to incentives and services.
The process for sale or leasing of individual locations differs for each property type. We invite you to search the available property listings below and contact PIDC to discuss your real estate needs.
