Japanese heavy equipment manufacturer Kubota North America Corp. is spending $85 million to build an engineering and design center on about 300 acres adjacent to its factories in Gainesville.

It’s the latest expansion plan announced by the Osaka, Japan-based maker of tractors, mowers, utility vehicles and industrial equipment, which employs about 3,000 people already in Georgia. Kubota’s most recent expansion came in 2017, when the company expanded its national distribution center in Jefferson, Ga.

Kubota Manufacturing of America also has an industrial equipment factory in Jefferson, while Kubota Corp. of America operates a Southeast regional office in Suwanee. Kubota Corp. subsidiaries have expanded four times in Georgia since 2013, making the company one of the largest single employers in the state.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports Helga, a 42-year-old glass-making giant based in Beverungen, Germany, plans to spend up to $6 million on the plant in Stockbridge, bringing jobs for about 21 people. City leaders said Thursday that the number of employees is expected to rise to about 50 over the next two years, and salaries would be around $60,000 a year.

I just found this article today, and I realize that this is extremely old (March 2019), but I thought that this was big enough to share. I live in Alpharetta, and I am ashamed to say that I didn't even know what Jackson Healthcare and how big it is.

https://www.northfulton.com/business...d25897bcf.html

Jackson Healthcare, a family of highly-specialized healthcare staffing, search and technology companies, officially opened its new, $100 million campus expansion on March 8 to accommodate its growth. “We are very proud to be in Alpharetta, Georgia,” Shane Jackson said. “It’s a great place to work, I think it’s a great place to live, personally, and the city’s been a great partner for us in really being flexible with some of the unique things we’re doing up here. The new campus is expected to accommodate 1,400 new associates and is dedicated to all Jackson Healthcare associates, past, present and future, said Chairman and CEO of Jackson Healthcare Richard L. Jackson.

The fact that they plan to hire an extra 1400 employees is insane. Definitely a big win for Alpharetta.

However, the new expansion is as gaudy, tacky, ugly, and unfitting for the area as anything in Las Vegas. It just looks so UGH.

Major U.S. multifamily real estate, investment and management company Cortland has acquired LIV Group for an undisclosed sum. The purchase is a significant move for the Atlanta-based multifamily business in its goal to create a market-leading position in the UK’s Build-to-Rent (BTR) sector. Based in Leeds with London offices, LIV Group was one of the earliest entrants to the BTR sector and created the first fully integrated operating model for BTR assets. It has gained vast experience mobilising, leasing and operating in excess of 20001 BTR homes nationwide with around 7,000 units in the pipeline for management, which it will deliver by the end of 2021. The business also operates the sector’s only specialist consultancy, LIV Consult. It provides advice on design, lifecycle, viability and operations for major BTR developments throughout the UK and Ireland, including consulting on more than 2,000 units in Dublin. Cortland’s acquisition includes LIV’s dedicated residential block management business, which provides management services to nearly 8,000 leasehold properties from smaller suburban blocks to flagship city centre buildings.

It is expected to create only 30 jobs, but Gwinnett County seems to need every last bit of good economic development news that it can get these days...

The Enchem factories will supply products to SK Innovation, another South Korean company that’s building a separate, $1.7 billion plant near Commerce in Jackson County, where it will make lithium-ion batteries.
