Firm Creates 25 New Tech, Engineering Jobs in Gwinnett County

Web Industries’ Suwanee plant is expanding its operations to create 25 high wage engineering and technician jobs in Gwinnett County, according to Georgia.org.

The company is investing $6 million to meet anticipated demand.

The company needs to invest to be ready to handle that increased demand, which is why it is making the $6 million investment, building out a large part of the Horizon Drive facility’s infrastructure by adding such things as large freezers and specialized processing rooms – and also hiring a number of process technicians and engineering positions.

“We are in a market where we process some advanced composites. And we have some long-term contracts, primarily for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft,” said John Jaskot, general manager for the company’s Atlanta operations. “As that program is really literally taking off, the production demands are ramping up rather rapidly. The demand for that aircraft for us is going to be multiplying six times over the next three years.”
