ST. LOUIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Safety National commemorated the completion of its two-year Maryland Heights corporate headquarters expansion construction project with a ribbon cutting on Wednesday, June 9, 2021.
The company invested $32 million to construct an additional 145,000 square foot office building at 1832 Schuetz Road to house the organization’s professional development and operations functions. Approximately 120,000 square feet of the expansion is office space dedicated to current and future growth. With triple the employee base since the original headquarters building was constructed in 2004, Safety National currently employs 655 individuals and projects to reach levels of 750-1,000 employees over the next few years.
