NCR moves corporate headquarters from Ohio to Georgia

ATM vendor NCR says it will create around 2000 jobs in Georgia by moving its corporate headquarters to the state from Ohio and opening a new manufacturing plant.

The move will see around 1250 jobs move from NCR's current worldwide headquarters in Dayton, Ohio to the firm's existing facility in Duluth, which is already home to its retail line of business. The Dayton site will continue to include its data centre and support for local customers.

According to the Dayton Business Journal, the decision to move out of Ohio comes despite state Governor Ted Strickland sending a letter to NCR CEO Bill Nuti on Monday offering the vendor $31.1 million worth of incentives to stay.

Outlining its reasons for the move, NCR says it decided to create a "single innovation hub" for its worldwide headquarters in Georgia after an analysis of potential US locations, using independent data on the available workforce, infrastructure, financial incentives and government tax structures.

The process of moving to Duluth will begin in July. NCR says it will work with affected employees to provide career services support and advice.

In addition, about 870 jobs will be created at a new Columbus, Georgia site, which NCR will use to manufacture SelfServ ATMs. The city of Columbus will use stimulus funding, provided by the Economic Development Authority, to purchase the building for the plant, which will be leased back by NCR.

The news comes after NCR revealed last October that it is establishing a global centre of excellence for its worldwide customer services business in Peachtree City, Georgia, creating 916 jobs.

Bill Nuti, chairman and CEO, NCR, says: "The decision to consolidate functions in Georgia and build a technology focused corporate headquarters campus is right in line with our business strategy to drive growth, improve our innovation output, increase productivity and continually upgrade our focus on the customer."

In March, NCR revealed it is ending manufacturing work at its site in Dundee, Scotland, resulting in the loss of 252 jobs. Citing the "unprecedented contraction in the global economy", the firm said it will stop manufacturing ATMs at its Gourdie site and reduce staff levels in engineering, solutions marketing and support functions.
