The nation’s leading gutter guard manufacturer will create 85 jobs in Rutherford County over the next five years.

Gutterglove will improve a new building to add administrative offices and team member facilities. In addition, Gutterglove will build out manufacturing, shipping and receiving, and inventory holding spaces.

As part of the expansion, Gutterglove will relocate some machinery from its current West Coast manufacturing facility to Tennessee to replicate a portion of current capacity in the new location, as well as invest heavily in new state-of-the-art machinery to expand its manufacturing capabilities.

Headquartered in Roseville, Calif., Gutterglove produces patented gutter guard systems that are designed, assembled and packaged in the U.S.A. The company began as a gutter cleaning business in 1996 and, after seeing a need for more reliable gutter systems, incorporated in 2000.

Gutterglove serves consumers through major retailers and professional installers. Its DIY product is available across the country from retailers including Costco, Sam’s Club, The Home Depot, Lowe’s, Menards, Amazon and Walmart.

The company’s contractor-grade product can be installed by any of the professionals participating in Gutterglove’s proprietary DoneRight program, which supports a vast network of local installers around the nation and connects them with interested homeowners.

Since 2015, TNECD has supported nearly 30 economic development projects in Rutherford County, representing more than 4,000 job commitments and $1 billion in capital investment.
