Consolidating for Growth: The Consolidated Pipe and Supply Company Inc. Relocates Headquarters to Birmingham, Bringing in New Jobs and Revenue

The Consolidated Pipe and Supply Company Inc. is relocating its headquarters to Tom Martin Drive in Birmingham, just off of Lakeshore Parkway. Currently located on the Birmingham Southern College campus, the company is a leading supplier for construction and pipe projects across the country, with a long-standing presence in Birmingham. The move will entail the creation of a new headquarters facility and a small distribution center, representing a significant capital investment of over $28 million. It is projected that the move will bring in approximately $1.1 million in tax revenue over a 20-year period, with a substantial portion earmarked for education. With plans to accommodate 100 existing employees and make room for 40 more, the project is expected to add new jobs that offer competitive wages to the area.

The distribution facility may increase truck traffic on Lakeshore Parkway, but the company has worked with nearby homeowners association to mitigate potential impacts. Measures such as implementing a one-way in, one-way out traffic design, limiting truck traffic, and installing a wooded screening have been put in place to minimize disruptions and maintain the quality of life for the community. Grading for the new facility is set to begin in the coming months with an anticipated opening slated for late 2025 or early 2026. Overall, this consolidation signifies positive step towards growth and long-term sustainability for both the company and community at large.
