With its ongoing expansion, Peachtree City’s NCR campus is looking to expand its parking options as well.

A proposal to add more than 600 parking spaces was presented to the Peachtree City Planning Commission Monday night. Most of the parking will be pervious, which allows water to seep into the ground instead of into a water detention system.

To accommodate some of the new parking, NCR has acquired a 4.9 acre tract to its south. That site had previously been approved for a self-storage facility, a project that never reached the construction phase.

Parking on the 4.9 acre tract won’t be visible from the road due to the topography of the land adjacent to Ga. Highway 74.

The new site will host a proposed 384 spaces while the company will add another 241 spaces to its existing parking area adjacent to the office and warehouse facility.

The parking will be necessary as the company continues its expansion with the hopes of adding up to 610 new jobs at the Peachtree City campus alone.

Because NCR services clients worldwide, the facility operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The parts center alone coordinates the shipment of 93,000 different parts. Another division of the local operation is responsible for dispatching field engineers to clients as needed.

Local employees will also handle customer care issues helping the wide variety of companies who use NCR self-checkout kiosks such as Delta Air Lines and also banks which use the company’s automated teller machines.

A big part of the company’s expansion will benefit local hotels, as the company is establishing its NCR University here to train employees.

The company’s campus is at the intersection of Hwy. 74 and Paschall Road. It spans 24 acres and includes a 417,000 square foot office/warehouse facility.
