ATLANTA, Ga. -

The Georgia Department of Economic Development announced Tuesday that AT&T is launching a new AT&T Foundry® facility in Atlanta to accelerate the development of the company's latest technologies and applications.

Governor Nathan Deal says, "Innovation, investment and new technology are critical to Georgia's economy and the AT&T Foundry® in Atlanta brings all three together in a powerful package." 

The AT&T Foundry® in Atlanta, which represents an investment of $3 million, will lead the way in developing the next generation of lifestyle applications and services. 

The Foundry will be located in the Centergy building near Georgia Tech. The 10-person team will test and develop products from AT&T.  It will also create new apps and services related to the "connected car," mobility, emerging devices and AT&T U-verse.

 "AT&T has been investing and innovating in Georgia since 1879, and our decision to locate this unique facility in Atlanta is recognition of the hard work of Governor Deal and leaders across Georgia to create a welcoming environment for businesses to invest, innovate and create jobs," said Sylvia Russell, President of AT&T Georgia.  "AT&T Foundries add velocity to innovation and the Atlanta Foundry® will add significant momentum to the already booming tech economy in Georgia."

 "AT&T is a world leader in innovative communications technology, and AT&T Foundry's decision to locate in Atlanta will certainly spur attention to Georgia's tremendous advantages for companies who are staking their growth to advances in technology," said Chris Cummiskey, commissioner of Georgia Department of Economic Development (GDEcD).
