The basics: Birmingham-based Ram Tool Construction Supply Co. announced in 2017 that it would be moving its corporate headquarters, including approximately 125 employees, into the vacant Hill Building at the Continental Gin property.
Why it matters: The move brings a concentration of employees to the revitalized neighborhood and could be the first piece of a redevelopment of other parts of the Continental Gin campus, which real estate experts have been eyeing for years.
The players: Ram Tool, Brasfield & Gorrie as contractor, CCR Architecture & Interiors as architect.
Key quote: “Ram Tool has been in Avondale for years and needed a bigger headquarters. (Continental Gin) seemed like a good opportunity.” Hillery Head of Ram Tool.
