Synagro, the country’s largest provider of organic residuals management services, announced today the relocation of its corporate headquarters from Houston to Baltimore County, adding 50 new jobs and expanding its office space at Baltimore Crossroads. The move brings total Synagro employment in the White Marsh/Middle River area to more than 100.
“Moving our corporate headquarters to Baltimore was a logical decision with our national footprint being largely concentrated on the I-95 corridor; we have access to a major airport, rail lines and key interstates,” explained Eric Zimmer, President and CEO of Synagro. “Furthermore, as we assessed our talent needs, research and experience told us Baltimore had a tremendous pool of skilled workers to recruit from to meet our organization’s needs now and well into the future.”
The relocation of Synagro’s headquarters included an expansion of existing office space by more than 9,000 square feet to over 27,000 feet to accommodate the 50 new jobs created at the site. The additional square footage will provide for additional growth in the future as well.
“Synagro works closely to help municipalities maximize the efficiency and environmental stewardship of wastewater facilities around the country,” said Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz. “We are pleased to welcome their corporate headquarters to our business community.”
