~ California-based gutter guard manufacturer to invest more than $720,000 in cross-country move ~
Nashville, TN — Tennessee Gov. Bill Lee, Department of Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bob Rolfe and Gutterglove, Inc. officials announced today that the company will relocate its headquarters from Roseville, California to Franklin, Tennessee.
Gutterglove, a manufacturer of professional grade stainless steel gutter guards, will invest $720,800 and create 20 new jobs in Williamson County.
The relocation follows the company’s previous $5.4 million manufacturing expansion to Rutherford County in December of 2020, which created 85 new jobs in La Vergne and positioned Gutterglove to be geographically closer to the majority of its customers.
In the last five years, TNECD has supported more than 20 economic development projects in Williamson County resulting in 3,100 job commitments and $314 million in capital investment.

“Gutterglove is excited about our relocation to Williamson County, recognized widely for having a great quality of life and being an attractive place to build a business. As an innovation company focused on products, programs, and technology for the home improvement space, this move will allow us to continue expanding on our vision of Protecting Every Gutter on Every Home.” – Matt Smith, CEO, Gutterglove, Inc.
