GEZOLAN, a manufacturer of synthetic granules, will expand their U.S. operations at a new 60,000 square-foot Buford facility at 4345 Hamilton Mill Road. This facility will be the only manufacturing plant located outside GEZOLAN’s international headquarters in Switzerland. GEZOLAN’s decision to expand internationally to Gwinnett was driven by the need for additional production capacity to match their current growth rate. The company was also influenced by the successful experience of their sister company, KRAIBURG TPE (USA), also located in Buford.
GEZOLAN has been manufacturing synthetic granules for almost 50 years and have customers in more than 60 countries. Their product is commonly used in the installation of synthetic flooring and surface coating, including running tracks, safety flooring for children’s playgrounds and infill for turf.
The company has plans to coordinate, along with their Swiss Headquarters, to produce and launch new products, as well as increase their staff by the end of 2018. GEZOLAN’s expansion is expected to bring in a total investment of over $12,000,000 to Gwinnett.
