(Company specializing in information technology equipment and software to relocate to Stovehouse development.)
Crunkleton Commercial Real Estate and Stovehouse Properties are happy to announce that Vertiv, a global IT infrastructure provider focused on bringing together hardware, software, analytics and ongoing services for data centers, communications networks and commercial and industrial facilities, will join the thriving Stovehouse development on Governors Drive in West Huntsville.
Recently ranked as the No. 1 supplier of remote IT management devices worldwide by analytics IHS Markit, Vertiv plans to optimize its operations at the new office while creating an exciting work environment for its growing team. The company expects to be fully transitioned into the new 37,277-square-foot space by Q1 of 2020 and will remain open at its current location on Corporate Drive during the move.
“Our new site at Stovehouse will help us match the facility to our people and our business,” said Patrick Quirk, Vice President and General Manager, IT Systems at Vertiv. “When we decided to relocate, we prioritized finding a facility that captured the innovative nature of our company. We have roots as a small, Huntsville-based IT management device startup (formerly Cybex, then Avocent), so having the chance to connect our history with the historic Martin Stove factory was an opportunity we couldn’t miss. It should be able to accommodate our growth for years to come.”
“We are excited to create a modern, collaborative work environment that builds on the bones of this historic structure,” said Quirk. “Our new office will incorporate a state-of-the-science development data center, training and demo space within a high-energy, community-driven environment. We plan to make it a place that will draw in fresh new talent and take care of our current employees.”
Owners of Stovehouse are excited to have Vertiv on board.
“It’s an honor to have Vertiv join our list of office tenants at the Stovehouse campus,” said Danny Yancey, Owner and Developer of Stovehouse. “We hope that the development will offer several amenities that are coveted in the modern workplace, like access to local cuisine, fitness studios, leisure activities, and many other things we plan to add in the future. Vertiv will be able to highlight these features when attracting new talent to its team.”
As leasing ramps up in Gaslight Alley, Stovehouse’s old-world shopping and entertainment district, more concepts will be added to the development’s roster. Crunkleton Commercial Real Estate Agent, Eric St. John, CCIM, is eager for new office tenants to experience the full benefits of the development. Owners estimate that when Stovehouse is at full capacity there will be around 500 people working on campus daily at various businesses along with thousands of visitors coming for food and nightly entertainment throughout the week.
“Stovehouse was created to blend the modern workplace with opportunities for leisure,” said St. John. “Developers have put together an exceptional space for both emerging and established businesses like Vertiv. Office users have an enhanced quality of life thanks to other nearby services that make their workday more enjoyable and productive.”
