When nexAir, one of the largest distributors of atmospheric gases and welding supplies in the country, moved its corporate headquarters to a new location in Memphis, Tennessee, the company wanted an office space to match its industry-leading reputation. Trex Commercial Products worked with Tull Brothers, Grinder, Taber, & Grinder, Inc., and LRK, Inc. to provide the nexAir headquarters lobby with a glass staircase that looks as light as air. The result is a polished and modern lobby that sets the tone for the building’s aesthetic appeal.
