City’s rise as a tech powerhouse creates perfect fit for world leader in supply chain technology and innovation
ATLANTA – April 10, 2019 — Dematic recently announced it will establish its global headquarters in Atlanta, securing approximately 40,000 square feet of space in the Coda complex in Midtown’s Tech Square. The move will add an estimated 230 additional jobs as the company grows its Atlanta presence.
“Technology is at the core of what we do,” said Hasan Dandashly, Dematic President and CEO. “We are the leading supplier and partner in the advanced automated logistics and materials handling industry. Our solutions combine the latest advancements in software, robotics and mechatronics to drive optimal performance for our customers. Innovation has enabled us to be a market leader through the first three industrial revolutions. Establishing our headquarters in Atlanta reflects our commitment to remaining a world leader in technology and innovation in the supply chain solution space through industry 4.0.”
Coda, the revolutionary 750,000 square foot mixed-use complex, sits right in the heart of one of Atlanta’s most desirable neighborhoods, and offers companies like Dematic the opportunity to co-locate with similar companies embedded in technology and Georgia Tech’s innovation ecosystem. Being a member of Georgia Tech’s Supply Chain Innovation Network helped drive Dematic to the location as the majority of the company’s professional workforce are engineers.
“We have partnered with Dematic for many years,” said Tim Brown, Managing Director,
Georgia Tech Supply Chain and Logistics Institute. “We are excited to have them as a neighbor with a long-term investment to grow here along with Georgia Tech’s Supply Chain and Logistics Institute. I look forward to our continued partnership in driving innovations in supply chain and intralogistics technologies.”
