CSM Bakery Solutions, a company with origins in the Netherlands, will relocate its global headquarters to Sandy Springs, creating 120 jobs and investing more than $5.5 million, Gov. Nathan Deal announced July 21. The company produces a broad range of bakery ingredients, products and services.
By moving its global headquarters to Sandy Springs, CSM will consolidate several regional functions into one centralized location. The transition will generate a total employment in Georgia of more than 800. These new and relocating employees will serve the company in an array of areas, including senior leadership, sales, marketing, business development, administration and other support positions.
With revenues of approximately $3 billion and more than 45,000 global customers, CSM employs more than 8,500 people around the world and offers a broad portfolio of well-recognized brands supported and developed from its eight innovation centers.
“We’re very grateful to the state of Georgia and the city of Sandy Springs for their collective efforts and generosity in helping to bring CSM Bakery Solutions’ global headquarters to the Atlanta area,” CSM President and CEO Robert Sharpe said. “Critical in our decision were the area’s transportation infrastructure, schools, cost and quality of housing and business-friendly atmosphere – all in support of our multicultural workforce.”
