GEBHARDT Logistics Solutions Inc. expands and relocates its North American Headquarters and distribution center to Gwinnett.
GEBHARDT Logistics Solutions Inc., a market leader in storage and transport solutions for retail and trade industries, joined Partnership Gwinnett to announce the expansion of its operations and relocation to Gwinnett County, metro Atlanta, Georgia.
The German-based company has innovated methods to expand its brand and exceed the needs of its consumers for 185 years.
“This expansion aligns with our vision to achieve extensive recognition as the “preferred supplier” in the North American market,” said Dr. Andrea Sachs, CEO of GEBHARDT Logistics Solutions Inc. “The North American expansion will bring further investment and new talent to the local area, contributing to the economy and competitive edge in the region.”
GEBHARDT’s 30,000-square-foot facility, located at 1650 Horizon Parkway Northeast in the City of Buford, will serve as a headquarters for the company’s North American production and services for storage and transport solutions. The facility will house four full-time employees and 10 to 20 part-time employees including sales managers, customer service managers, engineers, logisticians and a general manager. The company seeks to actively increase its number of full-time employees as it expands into the North American market.
“This expansion is a testament to Gwinnett’s dynamic pro-business environment and we are proud to welcome GEBHARDT to Gwinnett,” said Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners Chair, Charlotte Nash.
GEBHARDT’s new location will allow the company to efficiently meet the demand for higher storage capacities in the form of a warehouse that includes seven truck loading ramps and a representative office complex. As a result, the company will focus on the implementation of targeted growth in the American market with large-scale projects.
The logistical solutions company has garnered a portfolio of a range of high-quality products and services that allow for an “all round worry-free package”. With over 500 employees across five production sites, the company remains a first-class leader in manufacture and logistical solutions.
“GEBHARDT’s expansion is great news for the city of Buford,” stated Buford City Manager, Bryan Kerlin. “GEBHARDT will be a wonderful addition to our community and we are excited they have chosen to invest and grow here.”
“Gwinnett County continues to welcome market-leaders like GEBHARDT to the community,” said Deven Cason, Project Manager for Partnership Gwinnett. “It’s a testament to our community’s commitment to growth and innovation.”
