Stella Source, a software development company for the metal distribution and fabrication industry, plans to relocate its Birmingham facilities and add 50 new jobs.
The company plans to relocate from Innovation Depot and establish its headquarters at the nearby Nextec Building, increasing its number of employees from 21 to 71.
“We are incredibly proud to build Stella Source here in Alabama and are excited to make Birmingham our official headquarters,” said Sean Hughes, the company’s president. “The collision of the metals and technology industries unique to this area create the acceleration, commitment and like-minded company that we need to succeed.”
The company plans to create 50 new jobs over the next three years, with an average annual salary of $90,000, according to the Alabama Department of Commerce.
Stella Source selected Birmingham for the expansion over Cincinnati, Ohio, where its other corporate office is located.
Stella Source will join Tquila Automation in the Nextec Building, the former Edwards Motor Co. building on Third Avenue North.
