Barcoding, Inc. Relocating to Larger Facility in Highlandtown
As Barcoding, Inc. continues to experience record growth and add to our many offerings, we have outgrown our current headquarters. Therefore, we recently announced that we will be moving our corporate offices to a 31,000-square-foot facility at 3849 Bank Street in Baltimore.
The new Highlandtown building is just a mile and a half away from our current location in Canton. Work on the redevelopment is expected to start in March 2018, with the relocation slated to take place by the end of the year.
Shane Snyder, President, stated that this move solidifies our commitment not only to the city of Baltimore, but also to the state of Maryland. He hopes that investments in the city’s infrastructure will have a positive effect on those living in the area by offering more jobs, as well as opportunities for innovation.
Barcoding purchased the new building, a former garment factory owned by I.C. Isaacs & Co., earlier this year in the midst of record growth. Our recent acquisition of Power Up™ and Versatile Mobile Systems, in addition to bringing on several new staff members and creating a stronger West Coast presence, necessitated the need for a larger space.
Big Growth, Big Plans
This year, we gained national recognition by being named the Maryland Tech Council’s Technology Company of the Year. In addition, we launched a new website, the #SupplyChainGeek Network, to help our customers, partners, and interested parties stay more efficient, accurate, and connected.
In addition to office space, the new building will be used to produce, test, and repair mobile devices from providers like Apple, Honeywell, Android and Zebra Technologies. It will also be used to set up an East Coast RFID technology center where we can showcase our BLE and UHF solutions.
The relocation is getting support from $795,000 in historic tax credits provided by the state and will be designed by Urban Design Group of Baltimore.
Jay Steinmetz, CEO, said, “We look forward to moving into the up-and-coming Highlandtown district. At this point in time construction in Baltimore is lacking, motivating us to double down and create a state-of-the-art facility that will enable us to continue to innovate and grow our roots in this charming city. In addition, as we redevelop the I.C. Isaacs & Co. garment factory, we are doing everything we can to repurpose materials of the building, such as using the original garment tables in our staging configuration area. It is important to us that we honor the building’s past as an American factory as we continue to move technology forward with our solutions.”
