International Display Manufacturer Triples Production Facility Space
Gwinnett County, Ga., Apr. 25, 2023 –– Aluvision, an event and exhibit modular systems developer and supplier, plans to invest $1 million and hire 30 new positions in unincorporated Gwinnett County this year. Currently located at 1620 Satellite Boulevard, Aluvision leased the adjacent suite, increasing their production area from 29,000 to 83,000 square feet. The expansion will accommodate new design, production and sales roles, as well as add three more manufacturing lines, which will double production capacity.
“At Aluvision, customer service and high-quality durable products have always been top priority,” said Aluvision President Dirk Deleu. “The expansion aims to maintain and continually strengthen our good reputation in those core areas. With the additional space, we not only have the opportunity to further invest in our in-house production facilities, but we also create extra opportunities to invite customers for training sessions and showroom visits. Witnessing a flourishing company and getting to know the people behind the scenes is the perfect starting point for long-term relationships.”
Ann Vancoillie and Dirk Deleu founded the company in Belgium in 2003. They expanded to the U.S. in 2012, opening a sales office in Atlanta in 2013 and then a production facility in unincorporated Gwinnett County in 2016. The family-owned and first-generation company currently employs 41 professionals locally and serves more than 3,000 partners globally.
“Georgia, and the Metro Atlanta region in particular, is home to a multitude of U.S. headquarters for international companies,” said Georgia Department of Economic Development Deputy Commissioner of Global Commerce Kristi Brigman. “With access to a robust talent pipeline and global markets, companies like Aluvision are able to lay down roots and grow in Georgia, adding to our diverse industry mix and filling market niches that support our larger business community.”
