Renova Technology, Inc., an after-market repair services company, has expanded their supply chain operations with a $600,000 capital investment and 30 new jobs, including customer service, marketing, repair and sales positions in unincorporated Gwinnett County.
The company leased the adjoining suite, building and remodeling a research and development laboratory, electrostatic repair technical rooms and office and warehousing space, as well as custom rework project lines and printed circuit board repair diagnostic and troubleshooting technology. The combined 40,000-square-foot facility, located at 1425 Oakbrook Drive, will help them meet customer demand by doubling repair production and expanding supply chain programs.
“We are really excited to keep our longstanding base of operations in Gwinnett County,” said Renova Technology, Inc. Chief Operating Officer Marc Melkerson. “With this expansion, we will be well-positioned for long-term growth, providing repair and refurbishment services to local, national and international manufacturers of electronics equipment.
“We value the involvement with organizations like Partnership Gwinnett, which has afforded us the opportunity to lean into the talent that Gwinnett County has through its university system to help us attain the 30% growth we are anticipating in the next year,” Melkerson added.
Renova Technology, Inc. started when one of the world’s largest automated teller machine / point of sale manufacturers needed a service provider to repair proprietary circuit board products and report data.
Since 1996, Renova has continued to grow and currently offer advanced exchanged, circuit board modification and repair, data intelligence, hard drive storage, security equipment repair and supply chain services for manufacturers, self-maintaining enterprises, systems integrators and third-party logistics companies.
“Georgia’s diverse talent, infrastructure and business mix continue to provide innovative companies like Renova with the solutions needed for long-term success,” said Georgia Department of Economic Development Deputy Commissioner of Global Commerce Kristi Brigman.
In 2001, Renova Technology, Inc. relocated to unincorporated Gwinnett County to better serve their customers and employees. Since then, they have prevented approximately 10 million pounds of electronics from reaching the landfill.
“Gwinnett County proudly boasts an 84.4% diversity index, ranking in the top five most diverse counties in the Southeast,” said Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners Chairwoman Nicole Love Hendrickson. “We are proud Renova, who epitomizes our strength and vibrancy, has continued to grow and succeed in our community.”
Renova Technology, Inc. also received the Partnership Gwinnett Small Supply Chain Pioneer Award in 2022. Over the past 27 years, they have continuously expanded their customer base and services, becoming known for providing customers personalized solutions and saving them millions of dollars.
“Renova’s expansion reinforces the economic opportunities, including the abundant resources and quality workforce, available in Gwinnett County,” said Partnership Gwinnett Economic Development Senior Director Deven Cason. “We are happy to support their continued success and welcome future collaborative opportunities.”
