SteelSummit Holdings, a leading national metals service center and trading company based in La Vergne, has selected Fountains at Gateway for its corporate headquarters.

The firm has leased 11,551 square feet of office space on the third floor of One Fountain Plaza at Fountains at Gateway, announced Fountains developer Scott Graby, president of Hearthstone Properties.

Approximately 30 executives and management team members will move from the company's manufacturing location in La Vergne to the new headquarters space at Fountains at Gateway, which will also accommodate future growth, according to Todd Rollins, CEO of SteelSummit.

The company processes metals for the automotive, heating and cooling, appliance, construction, and other industries, and has a manufacturing facility in Davidson County near La Vergne. 

"Our company and headquarters operations are expanding, and we need to move our corporate offices to a larger more strategic location," said Rollins. "Fountains at Gateway in Murfreesboro offers the headquarters space we need in a location that is close to Nashville International Airport to accommodate our visitors. It also offers our people a better commute and the conveniences along the Gateway business corridor. Everyone on our headquarters team is excited about the move."

Construction of SteelSummit's space begins next month and will be completed in early spring 2020. Paradym Studio is leading the design and engineering for the buildout.

"We're excited to welcome SteelSummit and their headquarters staff to Murfreesboro and to Fountains," said Graby. "This growing steel supplier felt that the amenities in and around Fountains at Gateway would give their employees and their corporate visitors the conveniences they desired, which validates the vision we set out to achieve.  We are looking forward to a busy few months as we get both SteelSummit and recently announced Saltworks Security open and operating here at Fountains."

"We are thrilled that SteelSummit has chosen to call Rutherford County home and keep its HQ in Middle Tennessee," said Patrick Cammack, senior vice president of economic development with Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce. "This further demonstrates that corporate and tech operations are attracted to our talented workforce, top-notch education ecosystem and business-friendly environment."

Brandon Hoop and Ben Claybaker with NAI represented SteelSummit in the transaction and Byran Fort and Frank Thomasson with CBRE represented Fountains at Gateway.
