Our manufacturing facility is located in Bessemer, Alabama, which is part of the greater Birmingham area. Bessemer was once a powerful center of industry, producing iron, steel, and railcars for most of the 20th century. Over the last 50 years, it’s had its share of challenges following the exodus of US manufacturing, but today it’s a community that’s redefining itself. We were proud to be a part of that redevelopment story when we began operations at the former Pullman Standard plant in 2013. Since then, we’ve expanded rapidly and invested heavily in our community. Long gone are the lines that once produced railcars. Now, they’re replaced with modern manufacturing lines that inputs raw materials at one end and produces fully finished components of a hospital on the other end. Today, Blox headquarters spans more than 1 million square feet of manufacturing space across our 50-acre campus. Our team of more than 600 people operates multiple manufacturing lines, allowing us to deliver healthcare buildings at scale for clients across the United States.
