Stella Source Expands Birmingham, Alabama, Operations

Stella Source, a software development company whose products help those in the metal distribution and fabrication industry operate more efficiently, plans to establish its headquarters in Birmingham, Alabama. The project is expected to create 50 jobs over the next three years.

The company will relocate from Birmingham’s Innovation Depot to space in the nearby Nextec Building.

“We are incredibly proud to build Stella Source here in Alabama and are excited to make Birmingham our official headquarters,” said Sean Hughes, Stella Source president. “The collision of the metals and technology industries unique to this area creates the acceleration, commitment, and like-minded company that we need to succeed.”

Stella Source is revolutionizing the way metal distributors and fabricators do business by providing a digital extension of their current relationships. The platform unites buyers and sellers of materials and services for accurate estimating and sourcing.

“Stella Source represents the kind of innovative technology company that we want to grow and thrive in Alabama,” noted Greg Canfield, Secretary of the Alabama Department of Commerce. “Stella Source and other companies are finding all the ingredients they need for success in Birmingham’s emerging tech ecosystem, which is growing more dynamic by the day.”

In addition to the Birmingham Business Alliance, other partners supporting the project include the City of Birmingham, the Jefferson County Commission, Alabama Power and AIDT.
