OUR NEW LOCATION:
ACWORTH

YOU'RE WELCOME IN ACWORTH

At the State of the City, Acworth Mayor Tommy Allegood made the announcement- Georgia Trade School is relocating and expanding to the historic downtown district! This 30,000 square foot building will be one of the most unique settings for a trade school in the nation as we will be neighbors to award winning restaurants, galleries and boutiques. We have a significant renovation and build out but it is our hope to open the new “Weldland” late summer 2017. In the meantime we will continue operations uninterrupted at our current facility in Kennesaw.

 

THE EXPANSION BY THE NUMBERS

  • Location will be 4231 Southside Drive, Acworth, GA
  • 30,000 square foot facility, nearly four times the size of our current operation
  • 25 welding booths, an increase from our current 15 with plenty of room for further growth
  • State of the Art classroom and student success center
  • Over 200 parking spaces within a two block walking distance
  • An estimated 25,000,000 dollars in our annual graduate economic activity
  • We cannot say enough of a “Thank You” to the amazing staff at the city of the Acworth and the visionary leadership of their Mayor, Tommy Allegood. There is a reason why he and his Alderman consistently run for re-election unopposed
