Nationwide Envelope Expanding, Relocating to Paulding County, GA
Gilbert said the company’s expansion to Hiram is a tremendous win for Paulding County. “Nationwide Envelope could have chosen to go to anywhere in Metro Atlanta, but it selected Paulding County as its new home because we offer an environment that is good for its long-term business strategy. NEC has been a leader in its industry for over 50 years and is well respected by its customers.
“The new jobs and investment the project will bring to Hiram is welcome news anytime, but in an economy that continues to struggle, they take on added importance. In fact, the average salary for NEC’s operation will be significantly higher than the average salary in Paulding County, which makes this an excellent day for our community,” Gilbert said.
Paulding County Commission Chairman David Austin is extremely pleased that Nationwide Envelope’s has decided to call Paulding its new home. “In 2008, when I ran for chairman, one of my top priorities was economic development and bringing good jobs to Paulding. We created PCED for that purpose and today we are seeing that decision deliver the first of what will be many successes. Nationwide Envelope is exactly the type of business we want to see locate and expand in Paulding. They are a terrific company with excellent management that will be a real asset to our community,” said Austin.
City of Hiram Interim Mayor Jack Paris said, “This is a banner day for Hiram. Over the last decade we have become a mecca for retail development but we are now starting to see our local economy move in a new and exciting direction. With the new WellStar Paulding Hospital, Atlanta Film Studios and now Nationwide Envelope, Hiram is experiencing a renaissance. We are excited that Nationwide Envelope will be coming to Hiram home and bringing much needed jobs to our area.”
