(GWINNETT-METRO ATLANTA) November 25, 2019 – Foundation Technologies, Inc., a leader in the foundation industry, joined representatives from Gwinnett County and Partnership Gwinnett to celebrate the expansion of the company’s corporate headquarters in Gwinnett County, metro Atlanta, Georgia.
The grand opening, titled “Opening Up & Giving Back,” was held this past Saturday at Foundation Technologies new headquarters on Progress Industrial Boulevard in unincorporated Lawrenceville. The company asked guests to bring donations to the event which will be distributed to Bearings Bike Shop, Street Wise, Path Project and Operation Christmas Child.
“We are blessed to be in the position to open more doors in order to increase our ability to serve to the best of our ability. This new building expansion ushers in the next chapter of our long-term vision at FTI. This is one of many sustained investments that we are making in order to support unmatched service, selection and convenience for our customers as they grow. This building is in honor of the hard work of the founding generation built to make room for future generations to come. God has put it on hearts that we are building something much bigger than a building here at FTI and we are grateful to be a small part of it,” said KC Queen, President, Foundation Technologies Inc.
Foundation Technologies’ new 60,000 SF facility will feature both office and warehouse space and will allow for the company to accommodate their future growth plans, which include increased headcount, expansion of existing product lines and the addition of new product lines.
“Congratulations to Foundation Technologies on this exciting expansion,” said Georgia Department of Economic Development Commissioner Pat Wilson. “We are proud to see a great existing industry partner like Foundation Technologies doubling down on their commitment to the community and generating new opportunities in the region. Thanks to our partners at Partnership Gwinnett for their work to foster this kind of success in Gwinnett County.”
