Crawford & Company, one of the world's largest independent providers of claims management solutions, will open its new corporate headquarters in Peachtree Corners this spring. The new facility, located at 5335 Triangle Parkway, will house all corporate headquarter operations, and represents approximately 500 new jobs and $15 million in capital investment over the next three years.
Crawford will be moving its headquarters from Perimeter Center to Peachtree Corners. The company made the announcement today, joined by the Georgia Department of Economic Development and Partnership Gwinnett.
"Crawford's decision to select Peachtree Corners as the home of their new headquarters is great news for the city," said City of Peachtree Corners Mayor, Mike Mason. "We look forward to working with the company to connect our talented workforce with the high-wage jobs this relocation will bring to our community."
With an expansive global network that serves clients in more than 70 countries, Crawford & Company offers comprehensive and integrated claims services, business process outsourcing and consulting services for major project lines, including property and casualty claims management, worker's compensation claims, medical claims and legal administration.
"Gwinnett County continues to be a strong draw to companies with outstanding global recognition," said Nick Masino, Chief Economic Development Officer for Partnership Gwinnett. "Our diversity, excellent workforce and prime location in metro Atlanta makes Gwinnett the best place to do business. We congratulate Crawford and Company and look forward to supporting them in the future."
Crawford and Company has recently announced the acquisition of a majority interest in WeGoLook, LLC, an online and mobile-enabled economy platform, that that will allow the company to provide a new system for their clients in order to better handle high-volume, low-severity claims. They have also recently formed a new entity, Crawford Innovative Ventures, to invest in more strategic acquisitions and partnerships. These steps will ensure that the company stays at the forefront of a rapidly growing and changing insurance environment and allow them to continue their long-term efforts of expanding into new industries and providing additional services for their clients.
"We are excited to bring Crawford and Company's headquarters to Gwinnett County," said Harsha V. Agadi, President and CEO of Crawford and Company. "This relocation will allow us to enhance our extensive global reach and network in a proactive business community, while also bringing investment and competencies to the county, further contributing to the great economic climate found in Gwinnett."
