TUCKER, Ga. — After many years in Stone Mountain, Ga., the USA Poultry & Egg Export Council has moved into a shared office complex with the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association in Tucker, Ga.
The process began with a groundbreaking in 2019 with a planned expansion that would double the size of the previous space and become a shared headquarters for the two organizations.
“There will be some benefits of mind, services and talents being under the same roof, and we will be able to take advantage of each other’s skills a little better,” said Jim Sumner, USAPEEC president, at the 2019 groundbreaking. “It’s just a great example of our industry working together for joint benefit and conserving resources.”
After utilizing rented offices for approximately 35 years, the group is looking forward to its capabilities in a new, state-of-the-art facility.
“Having this permanent facility here, its preserves our future to serve the export interests of the industry,” Sumner said in an introductory tour video of the new office headquarters. The video displaying the new offices can be accessed on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XG1J19q4Mgo.
The new address for USAPEEC is 1532 Cooledge Road, Tucker, Ga. 30084. The export organization can also be reached at 770-413-0006; https://www.usapeec.org.
