“Our team has been growing non-stop, and we saw the opportunity to become a well-known employer in the area, as we expand not only in the Midwest, but down south,” Reasoner told Bham Now.

Adding 30 Jobs

Presently, TransLoop’s Birmingham office has seven employees. By the end of the year they intend to add 30 positions in the Magic City.

The company is actively recruiting for multiple positions, including:

Located on the Hugh Kaul Trail, which is part of the Red Rock Trail System, M2’s current occupants are Ghost Train Brewing Co., Freshwater Land Trust and Trips for Kids. In June, the Sunrise Rotary Club will be opening the Sunrise Rotary Plaza, on the trail behind M2. A 10,000 square foot mural is also slated to be completed across from the trail.

“Our expectations were blown out of the water when the new space was revealed to us. I believe in our Birmingham leadership, and we’re excited for the team to move into the new M2 building. This is just the beginning for TransLoop in Birmingham,” concluded Reasoner.

According to M2, retail and warehouse space are still available.
