ATLANTA, April 10, 2019 — Governor Brian P. Kemp has announced that Dematic, a world leader in supply chain technology and innovation, will create more than 230 jobs and invest approximately $30 million in a new global headquarters in the CODA complex in Midtown Atlanta’s Tech Square.
“Our dynamic, pro-business environment is one of the reasons that Georgia is so successful in attracting innovative companies like Dematic,” said Governor Kemp. “By providing businesses with world-class talent, accessibility to global markets, and broadband infrastructure, our state will continue to be a leader in attracting and supporting tech companies.”
Dematic’s global headquarters will support its operations in 27 countries and more than 7,000 employees across the globe. With a long history in Metro Atlanta, Dematic employs more than 100 people in several locations including Peachtree Corners and Griffin.
“Technology is at the core of what we do,” said Hasan Dandashly, Dematic President and CEO. “We are the leading supplier and partner in the advanced automated logistics and materials handling industry. Our solutions combine the latest advancements in software, robotics and mechatronics to drive optimal performance for our customers. Innovation has enabled us to be a market leader through the first three industrial revolutions. Establishing our headquarters in Atlanta reflects our commitment to remaining a world leader in technology and innovation in the supply chain solution space through industry 4.0.”
“Fulton County has long been a key logistics hub for our country,” said Fulton County Commission Chairman Robb Pitts. “Dematic will thrive in Midtown’s innovative culture, and be able to tap into the best minds and workforce the Southeast can offer.”
“We view Dematic as a perfect match for Fulton County, not only from an industry perspective, but also for the talent we have available,” said Al Nash, CEO of Select Fulton. “Dematic’s decision to move into the new CODA complex solidifies Fulton County as the place to be for innovation, logistics, and supply chain companies.”
Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) Project Manager Sunny Anderson represented the Global Commerce Division in partnership with Invest Atlanta, Metro Atlanta Chamber and Georgia Power.
“We are excited to welcome Dematic to the heart of Midtown Atlanta in the brand new CODA building,” said GDEcD Commissioner Pat Wilson. “Dematic’s commitment to Georgia has been steadfast, and I am confident that their partnership with Georgia Tech and their Supply Chain Innovation Network will allow them to thrive here in Technology Square.”
“We have partnered with Dematic for many years,” said Tim Brown, Managing Director, Georgia Tech Supply Chain and Logistics Institute. “We are excited to have them as a neighbor with a long-term investment to grow here along with Georgia Tech’s Supply Chain and Logistics Institute. I look forward to our continued partnership in driving innovations in supply chain and intralogistics technologies.”
“We are thrilled Dematic has chosen to lay down roots in Fulton County,” said Fulton County Commissioner Liz Hausmann. “Their on-going partnership with Georgia Tech Logistics and Supply Chain Institute will surely strengthen now that they will be neighbors, and will provide even more reason for graduates to stay here after their studies have concluded.”
