Moving forward with a new facility at White Marsh
Annapolis, MD— Governor Larry Hogan today announced that Greenland Technologies Holding Corporation, a technology developer and manufacturer of electric industrial vehicles and drivetrain systems for materials handling machinery and vehicles, has selected Baltimore County for the next phase of the company’s major expansion into the United States. Greenland conducted a comprehensive national selection process before selecting Maryland earlier this year, and Baltimore County was selected after consideration of several criteria, including location, workforce, incentives and logistic.
With the official selection, Greenland plans to move forward with an approximately 50,000 square foot manufacturing facility located at 5301 Nottingham Drive in White Marsh, where it expects to create new full-time jobs on a regular basis. The facility, scheduled to officially open in July, is central to the company’s strategy to meet growing customer demand for its growing line of electric industrial vehicles.
“We welcome Greenland Technologies’ new US manufacturing operations to Maryland and are excited to see the company’s vision come to life at its Baltimore County site,” Governor Larry Hogan said. “Greenland’s innovative technologies will allow the company to easily carve out a foothold in the Mid-Atlantic and continue to grow its presence across the country.”
Established in 2006, Greenland has grown into one of the world’s largest suppliers of transmission and transmission systems for material handling equipment such as forklifts used in industrial and logistics environments. Greenland Technologies’ investments in R&D and innovation successes have established it as a developer of cutting-edge clean energy technologies, with a proven commitment to embrace the electrification process and integrate it into the market. electric industrial vehicles.
“We are thrilled and confident in our decision to build in Maryland given our extensive selection process. As we moved forward, our selection was validated every step of the way,” said Raymond Wang, CEO of Greenland. “The Governor’s team and local officials clearly share our vision and enthusiasm for electrification and understand the positive implications for job creation, economic benefits and for Greenland in particular. Having such committed and supportive partners is critical to our long-term success and our ability to rapidly ramp up our new manufacturing facility to meet strong customer demand for our industrial electric vehicles.
To support its expansion, the company submitted a notice of intent to use the state More Jobs for Marylanders program, administered by the Maryland Department of Commerce. The More Jobs for Marylanders program encourages new and existing manufacturers to create new jobs in the state, as well as non-manufacturers who locate or expand in Maryland’s Opportunity Areas.
“We are delighted that Greenland Technologies has chosen Baltimore County as the headquarters for its US manufacturing operations,” said John Olszewski, Baltimore County Manager. “We are excited to welcome Greenland and more green manufacturing jobs to Baltimore County. Greenland’s innovation and leadership in the development of clean, green, zero-emissions industrial equipment is critical to our achievement of cleaner air and a better Baltimore County.
