Georgia Gov Nathan Deal announced that CHEP USA, provider of pallet and container pooling systems and a part of Brambles Limited, will relocate its headquarters to the Atlanta area. The company plans to bring 173 jobs to the new facility over the next five years.
“Georgia has many natural benefits and other strategic resources that make our state an attractive location for companies in the logistics industry,” said Deal. “CHEP and other logistics service providers understand that Georgia has significant capabilities to support this industry, so we are indeed glad to welcome this new headquarters operation to Georgia.”
CHEP USA headquarters operations will locate in office space in Dunwoody GA. In addition, this location will be the base for other leaders from the Americas Region and global functions of the Pallets business segment, and will serve as a Brambles regional office with members of the Brambles IT leadership team. CHEP expects the facility to be operational by autumn 2012 and is recruiting for open positions in the Atlanta area.
The Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD) collaborated with the City of Dunwoody and the Metro Atlanta Chamber to secure this business opportunity for Georgia. GDEcD senior project manager Lauren Salas oversaw this project on behalf of the state.
