Over the years, Alabama Chanin has emerged as a multi-fold organization—which we refer to as the “Alabama Chanin Family of Businesses." They include: The School of Making, Building 14, and The Factory Store + Café.

Each of our divisions has individual specialties, yet all fall under the same mission established for Alabama Chanin. Our philosophies guide each arm and we all work together toward the same goal: creating beautiful products in sustainable ways that enrich our customers, community, and co-workers.

Our operations are housed in a sturdy, industrial-style, metal building which we call “The Factory.” It is a unique work environment, and our team members are creative, inspired, committed, dedicated, and enthusiastic about their role in the company—we truly love and believe in what we are doing here at The Factory and beyond.

If you think you would be a perfect fit for our growing team, then you’ve come to the right place.
