(National technology-enabled staffing company to join historic Stovehouse development on Governors Drive.)

Stovehouse Properties and Crunkleton Commercial Real Estate are excited to announce that Spur, one of the largest technology-enabled staffing companies in the United States, will relocate its headquarters to a 9,853 square foot space at Stovehouse in late 2018. After outgrowing its current location, Spur will expand its workforce and make way for future growth with its move to the large-scale office, food and events complex in Westside Huntsville.

“Finding contiguous office space with enough square footage, sought-after amenities and a creative atmosphere is challenging,” said CEO and Founder of Spur, Glenn Clayton. “Stovehouse immediately got our attention because of its unique vibe and desire to create a community. Our workforce will have access to many conveniences that matter to them—like restaurants in the food garden and ongoing entertainment. It’s a place you want to stay awhile and we encourage our colleagues to take full advantage of it.”

As a college student, Clayton began a small tutoring service that eventually grew into Appleton Talent—a leading staffing company for the education industry. After growing that company, Clayton and his management team set out to reimagine staffing.

In 2017, Spur was launched with the mission of giving workers better access to opportunities that would improve their lives. Spur operates an online staffing company for businesses and motivated workers to connect over part-time and temporary jobs.

The company provides businesses an easier and less expensive way to meet their staffing needs. Workers can access job opportunities tailored to their preferences and gain access to 24/7 training and professional development tools.

“Smart phone proliferation and technology tools that are available to the workforce mean the old way of staffing is changing,” said Clayton. “We created Spur to empower the worker, help them find jobs they are interested in, and give them more control over their schedules.”

Clayton said that Spur hopes to become the largest provider of staffing services in the country over the next few years. Currently, the company has more than 70 full-time corporate employees and has plans of growing to over 100 within the next six months.

“From the beginning, Stovehouse aimed to create a destination that its tenants and Huntsville could be proud of,” said Danny Yancey, owner/developer of Stovehouse Properties. “The needs of today’s workforce are changing quickly and we are committed to developing an environment that helps them thrive. Spur’s success is a testament to our city’s emphasis on nurturing innovation and technology. We can’t wait to welcome them to the development.”


Spur is expected to join Stovehouse later this year along with other soon-to-be-announced office and food garden tenants.

“Spur was focused on finding a location that would enable growth, reflect the company’s culture and give its workers access to many modern amenities,” said Wesley Crunkleton, principal at Crunkleton Commercial Real Estate. “Stovehouse was the perfect fit. The new headquarters will place them in the center of the city and create more opportunities for expanding their footprint.”
