In March 2020, KEMBA revealed the design for its new state-of-the-art, 147,000 square-foot, eight-story Class A corporate headquarters adjacent to its existing Union Centre facility. Schumacher Dugan Construction Company has completed construction and KEMBA Credit Union employees will soon occupy the tallest building in West Chester Township.
KEMBA plans to add 40 jobs to its existing workforce of more than 100 at this location. KEMBA’s retail operations will remain in its existing four-story, 32,000 square-foot Class A office building and the remainder of the facility will be available for lease.
