Assembly operation expands in Duluth

DULUTH -- A company expansion will create 14 more jobs in Gwinnett, with a planned investment of $1.2 million.

Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce officials celebrated the grand opening of the expanded operations of OLI, a subsidiary of WAMGROUP. The project involves the establishment of a new assembly operation and investment in assembling and testing equipment at a Buford Highway facility.

"This new assembly operation is vital in creating increased flexibility, matching our market's demands, and providing immediate availability of our products to our customers," stated OLI North America President Gianni Varini. "By expanding our plant in Gwinnett, we are able to stand by our company motto of making our products available 'When you need it, Where you need it.'"

OLI's work includes engineering, manufacturing and supplying electric and pneumatic industrial vibratory motors and flow aids for use in machines in the food, construction, foundry and plastics handling processes.

"OLI's calculated decision to expand its only North American facility in Gwinnett to better serve this large market area speaks to the county's strong business environment," Gwinnett County Commission Chairman Charlotte Nash said in a press release.

I read the 4th paragraph a half dozen times and I'm still not sure what this company does. Whatever it is, they seem to do it well enough to add some much welcome jobs to the Gwinnett economy. Way to go you engineering,manufacturing and supplying electric and pneumatic industrial vibratory motors and flow acid providers! You really ROCK !

You should also read "between the lines." This company doesn't pay any property taxes and goodness knows what else. This is the definition of Gwinnett's "strong business environment."

So we have 800,000 people and lets say twentyfive percent are working age (200,000) that is a net increase of 0.00006 percent of the working population. I guess we should be jumping up and down!
