Large Corporation Invests Millions in Jefferson County

Consolidated Pipe and Supply Company Inc. is relocating its headquarters from the Birmingham Southern College campus to Tom Martin Drive in Birmingham, near Lakeshore Parkway. The company, a leading supplier for construction and pipe projects nationwide, has been operating in Birmingham for many years. This move is viewed as a positive development for local economic growth by county leaders.

The relocation project will involve the construction of a new headquarters facility and a small distribution center, representing a capital investment of over $28 million. It is estimated that the project will generate around $1.1 million in tax revenue over a 20-year period, with a significant portion going towards education in the area. This move is expected to create job opportunities for 40 new employees, in addition to accommodating the existing 100 employees.

To address concerns about increased truck traffic in the area, the company and the homeowners association have collaborated to implement traffic management measures. These include a one-way traffic flow system, restrictions on truck traffic volume, and a ban on trucks entering residential neighborhoods. A wooded screening will also be installed to shield the facility from nearby residents’ view.

Grading work for the new facility is scheduled to begin in the coming months, with an anticipated opening date in late 2025 or early 2026. This relocation project is seen as a significant milestone for both Consolidated Pipe and Supply Company Inc and the economic development in Jefferson County.
