NORCROSS -- A minority-owned staffing company has expanded to Gwinnett, bringing 53 jobs.
I-TECH Staffing Services celebrated last week its new 45,000-square-foot facility at 4020 Steve Reynolds Blvd. in Norcross.
"My decision to expand in Gwinnett County was obvious. Gwinnett is growing and heavily populated with the communities in which we serve," said Phillip Tran, President of I-TECH Staffing and I-TECH e-Services.
The company serves a diverse demographic, including customers of Vietnamese, Hispanic, Korean, South American, African, Eastern European and Chinese descent.
Established in 1997, I-TECH specializes in placing employees experienced in electronics assembly and soldering for the electronics manufacturing and repair industry.
"I-TECH Staffing is uniquely qualified to fill electro-mechanical and electronic technician, tester and assembler positions due to our sister company, I-Tech e-Services', in-house facility." said Lila Brennan, director of staffing at I-TECH Staffing. "Since moving into our new facility, we now have room for growth -- including benefits and services to our employees that other staffing agencies cannot and do not offer."
In a press release, county Chairwoman Charlotte Nash said she was glad to hear of the expansion.
"The jobs added will not only employ more of our qualified workforce, but the firm itself is ensuring that Gwinnett remains Metro Atlanta's most employed county," she said.
Nick Masino, the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce's vice president of economic development, touted the influx of successful minority-owned businesses in the county.
"As a majority-minority county, job creation resulting from minority entrepreneurship is makes a significant economic impact on the Gwinnett community at large," Masino said in the release.
