The company jointly announced the move with Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee and Bob Rolfe, commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development.
“Gutterglove is excited about our relocation to Williamson County, recognized widely for having a great quality of life and being an attractive place to build a business,” Gutterglove CEO Matt Smith said in a statement. “As an innovation company focused on products, programs and technology for the home improvement space, this move will allow us to continue expanding on our vision of protecting every gutter on every home.”
The company is renovating space in Franklin for a move in January, according to Lindsey Tipton, a spokesperson for the TDECD.
The change of corporate base comes after the company invested $5.4 million in Rutherford County last December to build a factory in La Vergne, Tennessee, creating 85 jobs.
The corporate relocation will carry an investment of $720,800 and create 20 new jobs, according to state officials.
Since 2011, Tennessee has been the No. 1 state in the southeast for headquarters, finance and technology job growth, according to the TDECD.
“Gutterglove’s decision to first expand in Rutherford County and then relocate its California headquarters to Williamson County is a testament to our top-tier ranking and underscores our business-friendly climate and quality of life,” Rolfe said in a statement.
In the last five years, state economic development officials have supported 30 economic development projects in Williamson County resulting in nearly 4,200 job commitments and roughly $387 million in capital investment, according to the TDECD.
