Chicago-based Z Modular will open the former 106,000-square-foot former O’Neal Steel building in Valley East Industrial Park.

It will be the first U.S. manufacturing plant for the company formed less than a year ago from VectorBloc Corp., Z Modular Fabrication and Connexio Building Systems Inc.

Z Modular Canada handles design, engineering and research and development from its Toronto, Ontario facility. Modular chassis for the units are building in Harrow, Ontario.

Z Modular will produce modular units in Birmingham that will be shipped across the U.S. to construction projects, with an emphasis on apartments, education, commercial, hotel, extended care, secure care, healthcare, data center and temporary housing uses.

The company plans to ramp up to at least 100 jobs as it establishes operations in Birmingham.

In addition to producing modular units, Z Modular can make and supply 90 percent of the steel-related materials used in the units – including HSS (hollow structural section) as the structural frame of the modules, steel conduit for electrical raceway and steel pipe for mechanical applications.
