A number of new jobs are set for Duluth, with a Chinese IT solutions developer moving its Research and Development Center to the city.
Travel-Sky, which supplies IT solutions to the tourism and air travel sectors, is to locate its control facility in Satellite Place.
There could be a run on business card printing in Duluth as a result too, with up to 50 jobs being created. Representing a $10m investment in the area, it could spell good news for other local businesses as well.
Talking about the move, the vice president of the firm, Yuanchang Huang, said:
“The Chinese civil aviation industry constantly looks for more effective IT solutions to meet new operational, customer service and high-standing industry requirements.
“By bringing together resources, expertise and talent from the state of Georgia, we expect to deliver exceptional IT services and expand into the global markets of travel industry.”
Huang went on to offer thanks to the state and Duluth for providing the opportunity. It is hoped it will provide a great foundation to launch into the U.S. and Canada marketplace on a serious scale.
The deal was also welcomed by Governor Nathan Deal, who said:
“Georgia is absolutely the right place for innovative technology companies like TravelSky to grow and find success.”
Across the county, there are more than 500 firms with a place on the international market. That number is growing too, as firms from all over the world recognize the talents of the people here and the opportunities provided to businesses in terms of growth.
