Commonly referred to as the “Rocket City,” Huntsville is known for its historic architecture and progressive industries like aerospace, defense, and biotech. Alabama’s fourth largest city is the home of famous landmarks such as the U.S. Space and Rocket Center, Von Braun Center, and Big Spring International Park. Huntsville is also the new home for one of Sain’s branch offices.
Since announcing the expansion last month, our Huntsville staff have been teleworking. We are excited to officially open the Huntsville office’s doors in just a few weeks. Our office space is in Cummings Research Park, the second largest research park in the country and the fourth largest in the world. Our neighbors will be a mixture of Fortune 500 companies, local and international high-tech enterprises, U.S. space and defense agencies, thriving business incubators, and higher-education institutions.
