NCR Observes Competitive Advantage from Manufacturing in USA
In June 2009, American technology company NCR Corp. selected two locations in Georgia as sites for its worldwide headquarters and a new North American manufacturing plant. The moves were expected to create an estimated 1,250 jobs in Duluth, Georgia, and 870 jobs in Columbus, Georgia.
“Our decision to bring our North American ATM manufacturing in-house was driven by our belief that as self-service ATM technology becomes more innovative and strategic to financial institutions, the ability to control manufacturing in key markets becomes a core and competitive advantage to our growth strategy... "
“NCR recognized that by in-sourcing their production, they would be able to decrease time-to-market, improve their internal collaboration, and lower their operating costs.”
-Peter Dorsman, NCR Senior Vice President of Global Operations
NCR chose to invest in the United States and Georgia because of its pro-business environment and outstanding education and workforce development initiatives.
