Z Modular, a division of Chicago-based Zekelman Industries, will open a new 106,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility in Birmingham’s Valley East Industrial Park. Z Modular is a one-stop shop for modular construction products and services. In this facility, Z Modular will produce modular units that will be shipped across the U.S. to modular construction projects.
As it ramps up operations, Z Modular will be looking for qualified and enthusiastic employees to fill up to 100 positions.
Derek Henderson, Vice President of Operations for Z Modular said “we chose Birmingham because of its location in the Southeast and the proactive business attitude of the Birmingham Business Alliance, Jefferson County, and the City of Birmingham.”
The Birmingham Business Alliance, the City of Birmingham, Jefferson County and Birmingham’s Graham & Co. worked together to bring the company to Birmingham.
“The City of Birmingham is proud to welcome Z Modular to our community,” said Birmingham Mayor William Bell. “This company represents the future of the construction industry. Z Modular choosing our region for its first U.S. plant signifies Birmingham’s importance to that industry and the role we play in its growth.”
“The quality of our workforce, the ability to serve a growing industry and our location has landed us another great company,” said Jefferson County Commissioner David Carrington. “Our region is ripe for growth in the construction industry and for those companies that want and need to be near it. We recognize that Z Modular had many communities to choose from and are excited to welcome Z Modular to Jefferson County and the Birmingham area.”
“Z Modular is a fantastic addition to the Birmingham economy and fully embodies the type of innovation that has become inherent to the region,” said Rick Davis, Senior Vice President of Economic Development for the Birmingham Business Alliance. “We are thrilled to welcome the company to Birmingham and look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.”
