Area Development
Manufacturing company Marlin Steel plans a 53 percent expansion to its production factory in Baltimore, Maryland. Company officials said in addition to expanding the factory floor, Marlin has begun preparations to install new equipment to be added with an overhaul of the power supply lines going to the factory floor, increasing the power supply sevenfold.

The addition of new manufacturing equipment and production capacity also means more jobs to run new automation and robotics. In addition, Marlin Steel is announcing plans to quadruple their quality inspection department.

When asked about the reason for the expansion, Marlin Steel owner Drew Greenblatt cited a strong sales growth trend in 2014 and a confidence in the “American Manufacturing Renaissance” as key factors in the decision to expand.

The Baltimore area can look forward to more employment opportunities for high-paying, high-skilled manufacturing jobs that will contribute to the American economy, company officials said.
