NCR Will Build New Global Headquarters in the City of Atlanta
January 14, 2015
Mayor Kasim Reed announced today that NCR Corporation, the global leader in consumer transaction technologies, has entered into an agreement to build a new world headquarters campus in midtown Atlanta. The new location will enable the company to continue to attract talent from across the metropolitan Atlanta region to support its hardware-enabled, software-driven business.
“I want to extend a warm welcome to NCR Corporation, a global leader in its field, to the City of Atlanta,” said Mayor Kasim Reed. “The new global headquarters will bring 3,600 jobs to the City, and construction of the headquarters will drive additional economic development, adding more vibrancy to a City already buzzing with energy. Every day, businesses are voting with their feet and choosing the City of Atlanta as the place to bring their dreams and build their businesses. The best companies in the world are building their brands here, strengthening our economy and confirming Atlanta’s place as a leading city for business.”
The new campus will be located at Centergy North at Technology Square on Spring Street, providing a state-of-the-art campus close to Atlanta’s rich innovation centers and leading academic institutions. Improved access to Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, the world’s busiest passenger airport, will facilitate NCR’s corporate customers from all over the world visiting Atlanta while conducting business. NCR also plans to maintain a significant presence at a second campus in the northern Atlanta suburbs.
“Creating a state-of-the-art campus in midtown Atlanta near Georgia Tech marks an important step in NCR’s reinvention as an exciting and important, global technology company,” said NCR Chairman and CEO Bill Nuti. “You can count on your hand the number of successful technology company reinventions that have been executed over the last hundred years – and NCR is amongst them. NCR runs global commerce and we make the everyday easier as consumers connect, interact and transact with business. We are extremely proud of the important innovations we create and the valuable work done on behalf of our customers around the world right here in metro Atlanta.”
The new headquarters in midtown Atlanta will be ready late in 2017 or early in 2018. While a location for the campus in the northern suburbs has not yet been finalized, it is expected to open during a similar time frame.
