Hexagon Purus Relocates-Plans Westminster, Maryland, Operations

Hexagon Purus, a company focused on hydrogen alternative fuel and energy solutions, is relocating and expanding its operations in Carroll County, Maryland. The project is expected to create 100 jobs over the next four years.

The company is relocating from Taneytown and leasing a 60,000-square-foot space at 1221 Independence Way in Westminster.

“We are excited to partner with Carroll County to support Hexagon Purus’ growth in Westminster,” said Maryland Commerce Secretary Mike Gill. “We thank the company for its investment in Maryland over the years and look forward to watching its continued success in our state.”

To assist with project costs, the Maryland Department of Commerce is working on approving a $300,000 conditional loan through Advantage Maryland (MEDAAF). Additionally, the state is providing a $25,000 grant through the Partnership for Workforce Quality (PWQ) program. The company is also eligible for various tax credits, including the More Jobs for Marylanders program and the state's Job Creation Tax Credit.

“Hexagon Purus’ decision to expand operations in Carroll County demonstrates that when businesses locate here, they grow here,” noted Jack Lyburn, director of economic development for Carroll County. “Our strong manufacturing economy, skilled workforce and pro-business climate continue to attract global manufacturers such as Hexagon. We are pleased with Hexagon’s decision to continue to invest in our county.”

Hexagon Purus, a Hexagon Composites company, enables zero emission mobility for a cleaner energy future. The company is a world leading provider of hydrogen Type 4 high-pressure cylinders and systems, battery systems and vehicle integration solutions for fuel cell electric and battery electric vehicles.
