Legacybox Expands Chattanooga, Tennessee, Operations Complex
The company’s leadership, co-founders Nick Macco and Adam Boeselager, have acquired another 60,000 square feet of production space on its current production and fulfillment focused campus, which is now greater than five acres. The new expansion now has nearly 110,000 square feet of production space spanning more than five acres. The space will allow the company to digitize more than 75,000 home movies per week.
Construction and renovations have begun on the new production space which will be operational in 2021. Legacybox now employs over 300 people in Chattanooga with further growth to come in 2021 when the new product space opens, company officials said.
“The importance of protecting analog media for generations to come has been further reinforced as people have more time to spend time at the home and with family to consider legacy and what is important,” said Boeslager and Macco. “We’re proud to invest further in our operations and to employ more in fulfilling work that creates lasting happiness. Chattanooga has absolutely played an important role in our success, the talent is here; the technology is here; and we’ll continue to invest here.”
“Legacybox is a point of pride for Chattanooga,” said Charles Wood, Vice President of Economic Development at the Chattanooga Area Chamber of Commerce. "They are the national leader in their space, creative innovators, and employers of hundreds. They continue to invest in our city and in our people. The sky's the limit for them, and it is exciting to know that from their growing Chattanooga facility they are sustaining legacies for hundreds of thousands of families across the U.S.”
Hamilton County Mayor Jim Coppinger added, “Legacybox’s expansion is more than just the preservation of memories for generations. This is also an opportunity for Hamilton County residents as the company continues to grow and expand. We are excited about the opportunity for new jobs as the company continues to meet the needs of hundreds of thousands of families across the world who wish to preserve the precious moments of their lives in a digital format.”
