KTA-Tator, Inc. recently broke ground on its new two-story, 48,000-square-foot (4,459.3 m2) headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.

Known for its expertise in corrosion engineering, coatings, and inspection services, KTA is a fully employee-owned company celebrating 70 years of business.

The new headquarters features unique amenities of employees’ choosing, such as a commercial-grade kitchen for cooking classes and fundraiser competitions, a salon, exercise space, a multi-function event hall, an outdoor patio, and more. Employees had significant influence on design and amenity decisions.

The company’s progressive approach lent itself to implementing a neighborhood layout, which groups employees together in communities based on their job roles and responsibilities.

Dan Adley, CEO, says it is essential for the new building to support the group's cultural beliefs of co-owner engagement and teamwork. “Every KTA co-owner will share value in our new home, whether they work here or in the field,” Adley says. “From its improved operational efficiencies to the amenities and perks, our headquarters will be a place everyone can be proud of and benefit from.”

The new headquarters is set to be completed by the end of 2020.

“It’s an honor to work with a group like the one we have built here over the years,” Adley says. “This new space is well-deserved and will benefit generations of hard-working individuals for years to come. I’m really looking forward to the transition into our new home next year.”
