4 posts in this topic

It's not a big company necessarily, but I'm happy it's coming regardless.

Atlanta to get new headquarters

Atlanta will become the new corporate headquarters of a major water equipment company.

Walter Industries Inc. (NYSE: WLT), based in Tampa, said today that its subsidiary, Mueller Water Products, has selected Atlanta as its new home.

Brought to you by Cingular Walter Industries is in the process of transforming Mueller Water Products into a separate, Fortune 1,000-sized, publicly traded company via an initial public offering by mid-year and spin-off to Walter Industries shareholders by late 2006.

Who knows? Perhaps it could become a big one.

This is a nivce bit of good news with all of the bad corporate news we've had lately (BellSouth being bought, etc.)

In addition to the big names, another local Fortune 1,000 company, Russell Athletic, was just bought out.

IMO the bad news is mostly a jolt to civic pride anyways.

Agreed. One of the ironies in economics is that many good things come out of economic slumps. When people gat laid off, they sometimes use it as an impetus to start their own company. Maybe some of the people who lose jobs with all of M&A's will start what may one day a new Fortune 500 company.
