Scientific Atlanta plans to expand

POSTED: November 22, 2007 5:04 a.m.

Scientific Atlanta is seeking a special-use permit from Gwinnett County to build a sixth building on its nearly 280-acre campus.

If approved, the new building would give the company more than 179,000 square feet of work space, said Sara Stutzenstein, spokeswoman for Scientific Atlanta. She declined to comment on whether the company plans to hire additional employees. The county’s planning commission will hear the request on Jan. 15.

The permit application describes the proposed expansion as an office building. Stutzenstein said the building would match work already done on the campus.

"We do product testing and development, research and design, and our corporate offices are here," she said.

Scientific Atlanta makes and provides video equipment to cable operators and telecom service providers. It employs 1,700 workers at its Sugarloaf Parkway campus and 9,500 people worldwide.

In February 2006, the company was purchased for $7.1 billion by San Jose, Calif.-based Cisco Systems Inc., the world’s largest networking supplier.
