Gwinnett County: Georgia's New Job Center

With experts predicting Gwinnett to become Georgia's largest county in less than five years and its enviable proximity to the state's leading colleges and universities, this economic powerhouse has emerged as metro Atlanta's leading hub for technology, bioscience, entrepreneurs and innovative companies of the future.

One of the fastest-growing counties in the nation, Gwinnett is much more than an affluent suburb of Atlanta. It's the driving force in a high-powered information-based economy. Located just 20 minutes northeast of downtown Atlanta, Gwinnett is at the heart of Georgia's leading research and development center. Strategically located between the top six research colleges and universities in Georgia, it is home to more than 850 manufacturers, 1,300 high-tech companies, 275 bioscience-related companies and 375 international firms. Gwinnett is also home to more than 10 percent of the total metro Atlanta high-tech companies and seven of the region's top 25 high-tech employers operate facilities in Gwinnett.

In 2007, Gwinnett's city of Suwanee was named one of Money Magazine's top 10 small cities to live in the U.S and in 2008, Buford was named the 3rd best city to live and launch a business in the U.S. by Fortune Small Business.

Gwinnett's labor force is a well-educated one thanks to one of the nation's top performing public and private school systems. It's the home to the largest, most diverse, and most successful public school system in the state with numerous schools annually being named on Newsweek's list of top high schools in the nation. Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine's Georgia campus, Georgia Gwinnett College and Gwinnett Technical College are also located in the county. The result: 89 percent of Gwinnett's students continue education after high school and more than 34 percent of its population holds a bachelor's degree or higher.

Since 1985 Gwinnett also has rated first nationally in economic strength by a Woods and Poole study documenting local employment, salary, education, manufacturing and service sector diversity, employment growth and household income. Since 1997 Gwinnett County's bonds were elevated to triple-AAA status, one of only 20 counties in the United States with such a distinction.

Gwinnett's solid transportation network is well facilitated by roadways, air, rail, and ports, placing Gwinnett within two days of 60 percent of the US population.

Hotels, restaurants, schools, and residential communities are among the finest and most diverse in metro Atlanta. Two of the region's most successful luxury home communities, Sugarloaf and River Club, are nestled in Gwinnett.
