Among the major national and international companies headquartered in Atlanta are Coca-Cola, Home Depot, United Parcel Service, AT&T Mobility and Newell Rubbermaid. The city and region is also home to a thriving financial industry and has been a major source of direct international investments, particularly from Europe. Many major European corporations, such as Porsche and Philips have located their North-American headquarters in Atlanta.
