Kord is committed to being the most engaging and welcoming workplace in Huntsville, Alabama. Our new corporate facilities are a testament to that vision. In December 2016, we relocated our offices to the newly refurbished facility located at 635 Discovery Drive, deep in the heart of Cummings Research Park. Our new offices will allow us to bring our people and our customers together more effectively than ever before.
Kord Corporate Headquarters- 635 Discovery Drive, Huntsville Alabama
The new office greatly expands our number of personal offices and our collaborative workspace with meeting rooms ranging from small group areas to fully networked conference rooms holding up to 200 people. Pleasant common areas including our large kitchen/breakroom and outdoor courtyard allow for impromptu meetings and discussions in a more casual atmosphere. Dedicated design, prototyping, and computer labs are on the way as well. The multi-use facility will allow Kord and customer personnel to work together on a wide variety of projects in workspaces fitted especially for collaboration. Our vision is to make working at Kord a more open, accessible, and engaging experience.
The new headquarters comprises approximately 36,000 square feet of new office space. This building had been unused for over two years and was detracting from Huntsville’s efforts to keep the Park as one of the most valuable commercial real estate developments in Alabama. Kord made a significant investment to renovate and occupy the facility, and we utilized Huntsville/Madison County based businesses for 100% of the work. Kord’s investment contributes to the revitalization of the Park and supports the long-awaited redevelopment plans for the entire Research Park.
We are taking a phased approach to growing into our new facility. Preparatory planning is now underway for laboratory and office expansion with construction to begin within the next year.
To support our rapid growth in the Aberdeen Proving Ground area, Kord opened its first office outside of Huntsville. The facility, located in the new “Gate at APG” office complex, consists of multiple offices, fully networked conference rooms and the opportunity to expand as our presence in the area grows.
