Economic development leaders from Partnership Gwinnett and the Gwinnett Chamber consistently travel worldwide to explore trade and export opportunities, recruit direct foreign investment and share the message that Gwinnett County is an excellent location in which to conduct business. These business and trade missions are a key reason Gwinnett is now a hub for international business.
"Gwinnett County is home to over 600 international-based companies. We are an ideal location for global businesses looking to expand their operation to the U.S. market. Having a pro-business climate for international-based companies, great partners and a dynamic workforce, we have the perfect recipe for a thriving and
growing economy," said Andrew Carnes, director of economic development for Partnership Gwinnett.
Key additions to the Gwinnett business community in 2015 include:
DuraMax® (Mirae VC, Inc. in the United States/Mirae VC Co. Ltd. in Korea), a South Korean-based manufacturer of brake products for land-based vehicles, chose Gwinnett to open their 12,234 square foot facility in order to expand their United States market as well as their presence in additional international markets.
Linhai Powersports USA, a China-based recreational motorsports company, selected its 6,078 square foot facility to accommodate their distribution warehouse and necessary office space. The project is slated to create 80 new jobs over the next five years.
