Headquarters Atlanta

Economic catalyst of the US South-East

The economy in the southeast US is booming. Diversity and low cost of living attract over 70,000 entrepreneurs and university graduates to the Atlanta region every year. Global access, excellent logistical connections, low tax rates, low business costs, and a union-free environment are all reasons that managers select the Atlanta region as a place to do business. European companies also prize the small time difference of 'only' 6 hours, which provides a relatively large time span for communication with their own US companies. Wages, real estate prices, and cost of living are relatively low on a national scale, helping make the location attractive and economically efficient. These factors make Atlanta the second fastest-growing metropolitan region in the US, with the tenth largest GDP.

Outstanding logistics

Atlanta is among the top locations in the US for logistics. Forty percent of US production and logistics locations are within an 800 km radius of Atlanta. Because the majority of the American population lives in the eastern third of the US, over 80% of American consumers can be reached within a 2 hour flight or 2 day truck trip from Atlanta. Atlanta's historical background as a logistics capital is still clearly evident. For example, Atlanta is one of only 5 cities in the US where 3 interstate highways converge.
