The Global Impact Awards will be held at Georgia Aquarium‘s Oceans Ballroom, on Wednesday, April 20th, 2016, where more than 450 Atlanta business leaders will assemble. The Keynote Speaker David Abney is the head of another inspiring Atlanta company, namely UPS. We at gatc LP are looking forward to this exciting event. It is truly an honor to be chosen as a finalist.

Since we started gatc LP in 1983, we have been an attentive observer of - and an active player in the dynamic development of the Atlanta Metro area. During more than 30 years in Atlanta, we set up over 200 subsidiaries of foreign companies, thus creating hundreds of jobs with our partners. We strive to incubate foreign investment to ensure long-time progress and growth, thus creating sustainable businesses in Metro Atlanta. Everyday we enjoy the professionalism of the Metro Atlanta workforce through our co-workers and partner-network. Not only do they impress us with their skills, but also with their proverbial southern warmth of character.

From day one we noticed that Atlanta is a special location. Even on a global scale, there are few sites that can compete with Atlanta’s business appeal. The logistic infrastructure is unrivaled and paired with low business cost, is speaking to a healthy variety of different industries, which will find no lack of highly educated young professionals. In addition to low business cost, Atlanta also features a low cost of living altogether.

Atlanta is a gateway to the South-Eastern United States, the U.S. as a whole, NAFTA, and even beyond that, to the Latin American Countries in the South. Kasim Reed, the acting Mayor of Atlanta was quoted, envisioning Atlanta as the „logistics hub for the Western hemisphere“.

One of the most weighty industrial trends in the U.S. in recent years – reshoring – offers a glimpse at what the future may hold for the South-East and Metro Atlanta: Industrial production is returning with a vengeance, merging with new technologies, offering endless opportunities for new market participants.

We could not have chosen a better place for our business and that of our clients. It is truly a pleasure to be a part of the big Atlanta family and being able to participate in its success story. Hopefully for many decades to come.
