Hyundai Construction begins working on new headquarters

NORCROSS -- Western Gwinnett officials are anticipating the new jobs and business that will come when Hyundai Construction Equipment Americas opens its new headquarters and warehouse in Norcross later this year.

"The package included more than just the ideal real estate," Norcross economic development manager Rusty Warner. said of the benefits that drew the company. "There were several logistical benefits including Norcross' proximity to major highways. In addition, I got the impression that they liked the charm, and the sense of community that we offer. HCEA's management philosophy seems to include being an involved partner with its community, contributing and participating at a local, more personal level as well as being an international entity. Norcross offers them a unique opportunity to do exactly that."

The new facility at 6100 Atlantic Boulevard is currently under renovation.

"Given that this is the headquarters of the Americas, we needed a location that was strategically located not only for access to markets in the Southeastern United States but South and Central America as well. Georgia, Gwinnett County and the city of Norcross will be ideal as we grow our business into the future," the company's president John Lim said in a recent statement.

The location is expected to create about 100 jobs during the next five years.
