Founded in 1953 and headquartered in Eindhoven, Netherlands, VDL Groep is a family-owned company that operates 98 companies in 20 countries and employs more than 17,000.

What’s it like working at VDL? Well, per their website, “We are looking for professionals dedicated to both personal development as well as to the growth of VDL Groep.

The jobs range from technical to managerial. You should feel comfortable working within a company that has developed and cultivated a way of working that can best be described as informal, open, direct and which considers 'cooperation' to be its core value.”

Hall County has grown in large numbers since 2000, adding more than 60,000 new residents alone. It’s home to Lanier Technical College, Brenau University, and the University of North Georgia’s Gainesville campus.
