Williamson County officials this morning announced another corporate relocation.
Seattle’s Avure Technologies, which uses high pressure technologies to create specialty materials for various industrial and commercial applications, is planning to house its headquarters in a flex-office space just off of Mallory Station Rd. in Cool Springs. It plans to employ 30 people.
According to the announcement, Avure has been around for more than 50 years, conducts business on five continents and has more than doubled in size during the last five years.
“Locating Avure global headquarters in the Nashville area offers advantages that span the full spectrum of factors influencing a move — from a well-educated workforce and geographic accessibility for our customers to a hospitable business climate and broad array of cultural and community amenities,” said Pat Adams, president and CEO of Avure.
Applications of the company’s technology are quite varied and include metal forming equipment, already utilized extensively in aerospace, along with high pressure processing (HPP) systems, which play a role in the worldwide food arena by keeping products fresh. The company’s operations here will include corporate functions as well as a food laboratory, customer test kitchen, and offices for industry specialists.
Avure is the latest in a string of corporate relocations, including Carlisle Transportation Products, which announced its corporate move at the end of May.
