FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – Longtime Fort Wayne business, Triple Crown Services, is moving its headquarters out of Fort Wayne. An employee confirmed to WANE 15 the last day for employees in July 31, 2020.
Triple Crown Services is a subsidiary of Norfolk Southern.
The employee tells WANE 15 the company will be moving its headquarters to Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania. That is outside of Philadelphia.
Triple Crown Services has been in Fort Wayne for over 30 years, starting as North American Van Lines. The company’s headquarters are located at 2720 Dupont Commerce Court.
The employee says 30 people currently work at that location. A few will be kept for an overnight shift, but the rest are told they’ll have to move to Pennsylvania, or lose their job. The employee says the people who chose not to move will not be offered any severance or given any benefits.
A spokesperson for Norfolk Southern says Triple Crown Services will continue to operate in Fort Wayne once 12 positions are relocated from Fort Wayne to Plymouth Meeting. They say roughly 50 positions between Triple Crown Services and another company, TransWorks, will remain located at their Fort Wayne office.
Norfolk Southern’s subsidiary Triple Crown Services will continue to operate in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Approximately 50 positions between Triple Crown and TransWorks will remain an important part of our network and located in the Fort Wayne office. Twelve positions will relocate from Fort Wayne to join the dispatching team in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania, effective Aug. 1, 2020. Those employees will have the option of moving with the support of a generous relocation package.
This restructuring will help to foster synergies among the Triple Crown team to promote future growth and continued success.Rachel McDonnell Bradshaw, Norfolk Southern Manager of Media Relations
