BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - The expansive former home of Southern
Comfort Conversions in Pinson Valley is on the market.
Southern Comfort Conversions shut down operations almost two
months ago. According to a recorded message at the company's
telephone number, the cause was the slumping economy and the
flagging automotive industry.
Now its 532,000-square-foot office and warehouse building at
4680 Pinson Valley Parkway is up for lease.
Rod McSweeney formed Southern Comfort Conversions in Trussville
in 1983 to add after-market parts to spruce up vans, cars, trucks
and other vehicles. By 2006, the company had operations spread out
in six locations in Trussville and Blount County before finding the
massive facility Meadowcraft had vacated in Pinson Valley.
