The new jobs include a range of positions in sales, merchandising, operations, supply chain management, information technology, and finance, among others.
HD Supply currently employs approximately 200 associates at its Atlanta headquarters. The new HD Supply Leadership Development Center and headquarters building will consolidate existing HD Supply and HD Supply Facilities Maintenance field support organizations.
“HD Supply is thrilled to deepen its commitment to and partnership with Cobb County and the state of Georgia,” said HD Supply Chairman, President and CEO Joe DeAngelo. “This strategic growth investment establishes our HD Supply Leadership Development Center, which will accelerate growth as we attract and develop talent, drive customer-centric partnerships and extend our One Team culture.”
In January, the Marietta Daily Journal reported that HD Supply plans to build a 200,000+ square foot, eight-or nine-story office tower at its Cobb County headquarters. The plan is two-phase: First, building 50,000 square feet of space to accomodate 160 existing employees and adding another 160. Next, the new office tower would cost approximately $75 million and accomodate up to 1,000 employees, likely housing 500 to 600 when it opens. HD Supply reportedly hopes to complete the office tower by 2018.
HD Supply provides a broad range of products and value-added services to more than 500,000 customers in maintenance, repair and operations, water infrastructure and residential and non-residential construction markets. The company’s leading businesses include HD Supply Facilities Maintenance, HD Supply Waterworks, and HD Supply Construction & Industrial – White Cap.
“Cobb County is fortunate to have HD supply in our community and grateful for their confidence in us as they choose to expand,” said Cobb County Board of Commissioners Chairman Tim Lee in a press release. “Over the years, HD Supply has made significant investment, created hundreds of jobs and has undoubtedly contributed to the tremendous economic success of Cobb County. We are excited about what the future holds for HD Supply and thank them for creating more high-quality jobs for our community.”
