(GWINNETT- METRO ATLANTA) December 21, 2016 – Shuma Sports, a sports apparel and equipment company, joined Partnership Gwinnett, Gwinnett County and the City of Lawrenceville to announce the location of their new operations in Gwinnett County, Metro Atlanta, Georgia.

Shuma Sports’ new facility, located at 490 Briscoe Boulevard, in the City of Lawrenceville, will include 10,000 square feet of new office space and 15,000 square feet of warehouse space. Shuma Sports chose this location to grow their business due to its central location and high visibility, while also having the opportunity to anchor operations in a community that is close to home.

“We chose to bring our operations to Gwinnett County because our family grew up in this area and we’ve seen firsthand just how supportive this community is,” said Zach Shumate, Managing Partner for Shuma. “This expansion will allow us to bring further investment and new competencies to the local area, contributing to the economy here in Gwinnett.”

Shuma Sports has plans to increase their sales force to continue serving Gwinnett County and the metro Atlanta Region.

“We are pleased Shuma Sports has chosen Gwinnett County for the location of their business,” stated Gwinnett County Board of Commissioners Chair Charlotte Nash. “Their decision to invest in Gwinnett speaks to the strength of our community and Shuma Sports should be confident that they have chosen the right place to grow and expand their business.”

“We pride ourselves on simplifying the ordering process beyond delivery,” said Jordan Shumate, Managing Partner with Shuma. “We want to form relationships with our customers that defy the limitations of customer service.”

Shuma Sports, established in 2014, offers sporting goods, including a full line of team sports uniforms, practice gear and equipment, as well as school spirit wear and corporate apparel. They coordinate all decoration, including embroidery, screen print and heat press services from start to finish.

“We are excited to have Shuma Sports as the newest addition here in the City of Lawrenceville,” said City of Lawrenceville Mayor, Judy Jordan Johnson. “We’re glad they have found a place to call home in this thriving community and are confident that they will find great opportunity for success because of it.”

The new facility will house 13 employees, including an internal graphics department, which allows the organization to service all requested custom design needs.

“The success of Shuma Sports is yet another testament to the startup ecosystem here in Gwinnett,” said Mark Farmer, Director of Entrepreneurship & Information Services at Gwinnett Economic Development. “As this move shows, the dynamic business environment and opportunities here are fertile ground for new enterprises that want to grow in place.”
