NORCROSS, Ga. — Gwinnett is not only the second-largest county in the state behind Fulton County, the county is also home of more than 600 international companies and more than a dozen China-based companies.
It was, therefore, apropos for the economic arm of the increasingly prosperous county to embark on intercontinental excursions in order to procure additional foreign investments and explore future trade opportunities.
The Gwinnett County Chamber Economic Development facilitated a delegation’s trip to the headquarters of Chinese cabinet manufacturer, LifeArt Cabinetry, in Fuzhou, China. The delegation is in the midst of a two-week business mission trip to also recruit direct foreign investment and build relationships in the region.
The visit to Fuzhou comes on the heels of LifeArt Cabinetry’s 2014 expansion in Gwinnett County. LifeArt started as a retail cabinet center in 2011 and has become a leading maker of ready-to-assemble cabinet lines, in both framed and frameless styles.
To commemorate their success, Norcross Mayor Bucky Johnson presented company executives with a key to the city. They were also given a proclamation from the County, presented by Gwinnett County Commissioner Jace Brooks.
“LifeArt Cabinetry is excited to be a part of the Gwinnett business community,” said Jason Chen, President, LifeArt Cabinetry. “We’ve already experienced significant business growth as a result of our U.S. expansion and we look forward to continued success. Thank you for welcoming us to the community.”
“We have created an environment where businesses thrive and economic development stands strong,” said Gwinnett County Commissioner Jace Brooks. “I am thrilled that LifeArt Cabinetry has shown such a great commitment to our community and look forward to witnessing this company’s growth.”
LifeArt Cabinetry boasts a 95,920-square-foot Gwinnett showroom and distribution operations is located at 6700 Best Friend Rd., in Gwinnett County.
“The City of Norcross is delighted to have LifeArt Cabinetry in the greater Norcross area,” the mayor said. “On behalf of the citizens of Norcross, we extend a sincere welcome and look forward to working with LifeArt to further enhance its success as a dynamic business and a leader in its industry.”
Members of the delegation include: Jace Brooks, Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners; Norcross Mayor Bucky Johnson; Nick Masino, Sr. Vice President, Gwinnett Chamber Economic Development; and Andrew Carnes, Director of Economic Development, Gwinnett Chamber Economic Development.
“The addition of LifeArt Cabinetry to the growing list international companies in Gwinnett County is incredible for our community and for all of metro Atlanta,” said Nick Masino, Senior Vice President, Gwinnett Chamber Economic Development. “By locating in Gwinnett, Life Art Cabinetry can fully leverage the exceptional resources and superior quality of life offered in our region.”
LifeArt Cabinetry is located in the Gwinnett Village Community Improvement District (CID), Georgia’s largest public-private partnership funded by commercial property owners in the 14 square mile area spanning the I-85 corridor in southwest Gwinnett County.
“Gwinnett County is pleased to have LifeArt Cabinetry in our district,” said Chuck Warbington, Executive Director, Gwinnett Village CID. “Their commitment to Gwinnett is something we all are truly grateful for. We wish them continued success.”
