Many dignitaries and town officials joined Cognex, JC&A and Gorman Richardson Architects for this important project milestone.

Cognex, a company that serves an international customer base from offices located throughout North America, Europe, Japan, Asia and Latin America, and through a global network of integration and distribution partners, shut down a plant in Duluth, Georgia this past March. J.

The project included the retrofit of the existing Production Line to have an uninterrupted operation with the addition of a new Shipping Dock, as well as the relocation of company’s state-of-the-art fitness center.
