Delta Dental Insurance Company, part of the nation's largest dental benefits carrier, is expanding its footprint in north Fulton County.
And with that comes more jobs.
The company announced Wednesday that 200 new jobs will be created as it has signed a lease for an additional 51,886 square feet in Sanctuary Park.
This will give the company a total of 215,265 square feet in the office park. The expansion allows Delta Dental to increase its total number of employees in Georgia from about 800 to 1,000, and most of the growth will take place in the company’s customer service unit.
The leased space is next to its current six-story building, located in the Alpharetta portion of Sanctuary Park. Delta’s expansion in October will be into the Stonebridge II building, which is in the Roswell portion of Sanctuary Park.
Roswell Inc., the city of Roswell’s economic development organization, has been involved with this project since February 2016.
“Anytime you add this many jobs to a local economy, it’s a big deal for the community, and we are thrilled to have Delta Dental expand its operations into Roswell,” Steve Stroud, executive director of Roswell Inc., said in a statement.
