Machine company uses KSU to find workers for new facility

Plethora Corporation announced May 30 a partnership with Kennesaw State and other universities to hire employees to work at its new Kennestone facility in June.

According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the San Fransisco based custom machining company has purchased a 57,000 square foot facility at the Kennestone Circle in Marietta and will invest more than $17 million into the new plant. CEO Jim Quinn said the new location will create over 250 jobs for Cobb County including competitive pay and a benefits package that includes equity in the company.

“Plethora Corporation approached [KSU] in March about their interest in recruiting KSU students and we are excited to partner with them,” KSU’s Career Planning and Development Assistant Director Krysta Fry said. “They did post a few positions through Handshake, our career management system and job board, which is where students will be able to find future opportunities with the company.”

Fry said Plethora is interested in recruiting students in engineering, logistics and supply chain management and production and quality assurance.

“They are a great company with over 1,300 other worldwide employers that our department collaborates with in order to provide the best career opportunities for KSU students,” Fry said. “Students should anticipate future job postings from Plethora Corporation in addition to the more than 1,900 job, internship and co-op opportunities currently posted in Handshake.”

According to the AJC, Plethora uses CNC milling machines to create custom parts for different products in a multitude of different industries such as aerospace, defense, robotics, medical goods, automotive goods and consumer products.

According to Plethora’s website, the company streamlines product development and looks to create new production processes, materials, finishing options and more. The company strives to be direct and honest in their communication and work to provide the best possible outcome.
