Gwinnett County, Ga., Mar. 29, 2023 –– Renova Technology, Inc., an after-market repair services company, has expanded their supply chain operations with a $600,000 capital investment and 30 new jobs, including customer service, marketing, repair and sales positions in unincorporated Gwinnett County.

We value the involvement with organizations like Partnership Gwinnett, which has afforded us the opportunity to lean into the talent that Gwinnett County has through its university system to help us attain the 30% growth we are anticipating in the next year.”
Renova Technology, Inc. started when one of the world’s largest automated teller machine/point of sale manufacturers needed a service provider to repair proprietary circuit board products and report data.
