We Are Where CNN Money Says the Jobs Are

August 29_CNN Money Magazine Ranking ImageIn April, we celebrated the grand opening of our new 550,000-square-foot headquarters in Suwanee, Ga., our fifth facility in Gwinnett County since we first broke ground in 1992. This month, CNN Money magazine ranked the county ninth on its national list of “Where the Jobs Are.” We couldn’t agree more.

The Top 25 counties on the list were determined by data from the U.S. Census Bureau. Only counties experiencing job and population growth, and unemployment below the national average, were considered. The magazine also used data from real estate research provider Onboard Informatics to develop a list of “Best Place” cities in each of the Top 25 counties. We’re proud to add that Suwanee, Ga., made the cut as one of the three Best Place cities for Gwinnett County and was recognized as one of America’s Best Small Towns in the magazine’s list of “Best Places to Live.”

In the 20 years we’ve called Gwinnett County home, we’ve outgrown four offices and have experienced double-digit growth in the past five years alone. And as a testament to our continuing expansion, we plan to add more than 100 engineers, warehouse workers and others locally to our approximately 300 U.S.-wide employee base over the next three years. It’s fair to say that we are part of the reason Gwinnett County is one of the most promising counties for job growth in the nation. We thank the people at CNN Money for recognizing the county for what we see it as — a wonderful place to live and work.
