Hagerstown, Md. (PRWEB) April 24, 2014
The Washington County, Maryland Board of County Commissioners are pleased to announce the ground breaking for a new Baltimore Mack facility at 11715 Greencastle Pike, Hagerstown, Md.
Managed through the Washington County Department of Business Development and the Washington County Economic Development Commission Board, the project utilized the Pad Ready Site Commercial Stimulus Program to assist with its $5 million investment.
“Baltimore Mack is a valued member of our business community and we are so excited they are able to retain existing positions and add brand new jobs to their operation in Washington County,” stated Commissioner President Terry Baker. “Their continued reinvestment in the community is a testament to the growth opportunities here.”
The new 31,000-square-foot building will be used for truck sales and service. Additionally, the new site will replace the current Hagerstown location, 12821 Salem Ave. and the expanded capacity will add 11 new full-time jobs increasing the total to 25 employees.
The County’s Project Liaison guided the project through the regulatory process utilizing the Fast Track Construction Program with significant assistance from the Division of Engineering and Construction Management.
“I’d like to note how positive the whole process has been here in Washington County,” Baltimore Mack President Steven Parker said as he addressed the group, “…keep it up because you’re doing a great job.”
