The next step in our 3-5-year business plan is to establish manufacturing and warehousing facilities, and hire more employees, especially with electrical and mechanical engineering backgrounds. We expect to leverage the competitive advantage of DeKalb’s strategic location considering Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport and the Port of Savannah to run an affordable operation compared to other major cities.”
