Intralox Announces Major Expansion of U.S. Operations, Increases East Coast Footprint with Lease of Over 310,000-sq-ft Tradepoint Atlantic Location
New facility in Baltimore County Industrial Park fueled by growth within the e-commerce segment
- February 17, 2022
Intralox today announced the expansion of its U.S. operations with its move to a new built-to-suit 310,000-sq-ft (28,800-sq-m) facility at Tradepoint Atlantic, the 3,300-acre (13.4 sq km) global logistics center in Sparrows Point, Maryland. The new facility expands Intralox’s U.S. East Coast operations footprint by 70% and is the third expansion in the Baltimore area since 2019.
The physical expansion in Baltimore is driven by strong growth in Intralox’s Logistics & Material Handling (LMH) Business Unit. The business unit has grown rapidly over the last decade and the added footprint addresses the need for an expanded industrial machinery operation with focus on parcel automation equipment for parcel, postal, e-commerce, and distribution customers.
“Another exciting expansion in Baltimore is not only attributed to the global growth in e-commerce and parcel handling but should also be attributed to the hard work and innovation of our people,” said Derek Lester, Intralox LMH Business Unit Manager. “We look forward to growing our team in the Baltimore area.”
“We are thrilled to have Intralox expand their U.S. manufacturing capacity and join our growing community of world-class companies that have chosen Tradepoint Atlantic for our unparalleled connectivity to regional and global markets,” said Marc Salotti, Tradepoint Atlantic Managing Director. “With our proximity to the Port of Baltimore and major interstate highways, plus on-site rail access, Intralox is well positioned logistically for continued growth on the East Coast.”
Located in Sparrows Point, Maryland, the size of Intralox’s new facility will allow versatile functionality and includes expanded production facilities and increased inventory capacity and features a state-of-the-art wellness center for employees.
