Microsoft is opening a new facility next year that will create 1,500 new high-tech jobs in Atlanta, the governor's office said in a statement.
The $75 million investment would strengthen both Georgia's and Microsoft's roles in the innovation of new technology, Gov. Brian Kemp said.
"I am confident that our top-notch tech talent and education pipeline will continue to be an asset to Microsoft," Kemp said. "We are laser-focused on providing high-quality jobs for hardworking Georgians, and I thank Microsoft for our growing partnership."
