ADP will expand Augusta office with 450 jobs, $20M investment
AUGUSTA, Ga. — Payroll processing giant ADP plans to expand its operations in Augusta, investing $20 million and adding 450 jobs.
The project will add to ADP’s more than 1,000 workers in Augusta and expand the building by 60,000 square feet. The new jobs will involve managerial and non-management roles, according to a news release from the Georgia Department of Economic Development.
New Jersey-based ADP, a Fortune 500 company with customers in about 100 countries, is a major player in the world of human resources software and services.
“ADP’s decision to expand their Augusta facility is a great credit to our state’s established infrastructure for high-tech companies,” said Gov. Nathan Deal. “Augusta is at the forefront of establishing itself as a hub for growing technology companies. With this expansion, ADP is a part of a group of innovative companies that have invested in Georgia to utilize some of the nation’s brightest talent and benefit from our state’s competitive technological resources.”
The Augusta facility opened in 2007. The company also has facilities in Atlanta and Alpharetta.
“Our organization helped to bring ADP to Augusta nearly eight years ago, and it was a game changer for our information technology status and workforce,” said Henry Ingram, chairman of the Augusta Economic Development Authority.
