Duluth, GA (PRWEB) July 24, 2012
AtHomeNet, Inc., a provider of web-based services for homeowner associations and community management firms kicked off the grand opening of their new 16,000 square foot facility in Duluth, GA with an official ribbon cutting ceremony and open house on Monday, July 16th. Since 1998 AtHomeNet has grown from creating interactive web sites for associations to providing a constantly expanding selection of additional web services to help homeowner associations provide quality online options for their residents, association managers, and HOA boards.
Duluth Mayor Nancy Harris and Economic Development Director Chris McGahee joined AtHomeNet staff, clients, friends and family members as co-owners Susan and Jeff Sanders opened the ribbon cutting ceremony Monday afternoon. Speaking to the crowd gathered outside the main entrance, Susan Sanders, CEO, reminisced about the startup of AtHomeNet 14 years ago and the invaluable contributions of the employees over the years. “We’re been able to grow the company from a home business and now we’re in seven countries, have over 7500 clients and 2.125 million homes using our service… we’ve grown from just Jeff and I to over 50 ‘AtHomeNetters’ as I like to call us, and we’re grateful to every one of them for what they have done to help us grow the business and support us in our journey.”
“What an incredible story!” Mayor Nancy Harris said, addressing the audience, “What I’ve heard walking around here today is that you had a vision this whole time… you have worked hard for this. We’re very proud of you and are so happy that you chose Duluth.” Mayor Harris went on to comment on the difficult economic times over the past few years for local businesses; “To see a relatively small business grow and make it through all that is quite an accomplishment!”
AtHomeNet presented Mayor Harris with a supply of work gloves for her “Helping Hands” project with Duluth’s sister city in Duluth, MN. The donation will be delivered by Mayor Harris next week when she travels to MN.
After the ribbon cutting, guests were invited inside for a tour of the new facility with twice the space of AtHomeNet’s previous location. Employees were excited about the company expansion as well, commenting “We’re loving the new office… it’s very nice, and I’m very glad to be working for AtHomeNet. “
“I thought it was fantastic!” added AtHomeNet president Jeff Sanders after the ceremony. “I think we’ve got some nice room for growth and we’re very excited about the new products we are offering now and coming out over the next six months.”
Susan and Jeff summarized the excitement of the day… “We’re honored that so many people came out to help celebrate our good fortune; it’s very humbling.”
