An international company is moving its metro Atlanta office from inside the Perimeter to Gwinnett County, taking 350 jobs along with it.
Partnership Gwinnett and CGS — “a global provider of business applications , enterprise learning and outsourcng services” — announced Monday that the latter had moved to the city of Peachtree Corners. CGS’ Atlanta-area location was previously in the Perimeter Center area.
The Peachtree Corners space is 55,000 square feet, officials said, and “provides much-needed room for growth” for the 350 employees who offer “business process outsourcing services to some of the world’s largest brands.”
One of 18 locations for the company, it is at 3795 Data Drive.
“CGS’s decision to locate in Gwinnett makes a great statement about the company’s confidence in the strength of our business environment,” Gwinnett County Commission Chairman Charlotte Nash said in an emailed statement. “We are excited to welcome them to our community and are confident that they will see continued growth and success here.”
Multiple companies have moved headquarters or significant numbers of jobs from Gwinnett County to the Perimeter area in recent months and years, including NCR and WestRock. CGS, however, marks the second company to reverse that trend since the start of summer.
Crawford and Company, an insurance firm with clients in over 70 countries, announced in May that it was moving its global headquarters — and about 500 jobs — from Perimeter Center to Peachtree Corners.
