It’s no coincidence that Malvern’s Turn5 has been growing so fast that it will soon have to replace its 45,000-square-foot space with one double that size, writes Diane Mastrull for the Philadelphia Inquirer.
Andrew Voudouris and his brother Steve started the company 14 years ago in the basement of their parents’ Newtown Square home. Since then, their business that sells aftermarket parts for Mustangs, Wranglers, and Ford F150s has continued to grow.
The e-commerce business connects auto enthusiasts who are looking to improve their vehicles with employees who share their passion.
“Whoever knows about cars, we hire, specifically the cars we sell parts for,” Andrew said.
The company now runs three e-commerce sites, and business is so good that it is moving from Malvern to a much bigger facility in Tredyffrin Township this fall. Turn5 also expects its workforce to more than double from its current 425 employees over the next three years.
According to Andrew, the consumer passion for customizing vehicles is very popular at the moment and the momentum is not expected to slow anytime soon.
“I just don’t see an end in sight,” he said. “We’re helping people with a hobby, not a commodity.”
