A nationally recognized title insurance and escrow provider that has a headquarters near Gwinnett Place Mall plans to add more than 1,000 jobs as it expands its operations in Gwinnett County, according to local and state officials.
Partnership Gwinnett and the Georgia Department of Economic Development jointly announced OS National LLC’s $15 million expansion plan Tuesday. The announcement comes off of the company’s sixth anniversary in March.
“In selecting Gwinnett County for our national headquarters, we believe we can support OS National’s explosive growth and strategic expansion efforts across the U.S.,” OS National Managing Partner Jamie Wunder said in a statement. “We recognize the county’s efforts providing businesses excellent options for growth and helping to grow a rich and diverse talent pool for the future.”
The company currently has more than 500 employees spread across four states. It works with clients to handle title and escrow issues related to residential and commercial properties and its headquarters is located in the Satellite Place office park at 3097 Satellite Blvd. in the Gwinnett Place Community Improvement District.
“We are excited that OS National has chosen to expand in the Gwinnett Place area,” Gwinnett Place CID Executive Director Joe Allen said in a statement. “OS National is a well-respected industry leader who has found the ideal mix of talent, access and resources in our district. We want to congratulate them on their expansion and we look forward to their continued growth here.”
State and local economic development officials also praised the news. Partnership Gwinnett, the county’s office of economic development and the Georgia Department of Economic Development worked together to get the expansion in Gwinnett.
“We are always happy to work with companies to establish a new location in Gwinnett, but when an existing Gwinnett business chooses to reinvest and bring more jobs to the local community, it speaks volumes to our strong business ecosystem and the available resources that a thriving business needs to succeed,” Partnership Gwinnett Senior Director of Economic Development Andrew Carnes said in a statement.
Georgia Department of Economic Development Commissioner Pat Wilson said, “Not only does this announcement put a spotlight on the state’s thriving pro-business environment, which is supportive of new and existing businesses, but also on the economic development resources available to companies in Gwinnett County.”
Gwinnett County Commission Chair Charlotte Nash said, “This announcement is further proof that Gwinnett provides the ideal location, talented workforce and pro-business environment necessary for industry leaders like OS National to thrive. We look forward to continuing our strong partnership with the company and ensuring its future success in our community.”
