Synagro corporate headquarters moves from Houston to Baltimore County

October 2013

Move brings 50 new jobs to Baltimore Crossroads in White Marsh/Middle River

Synagro, a provider to municipal and industrial water and wastewater facilities, has moved its corporate headquarters from Houston to Baltimore County, adding 50 new jobs and expanding its office space at Baltimore Crossroads. The move brings total Syngaro employment in White Marsh/Middle River to 100.

“With Syngaro’s corporate headquarters, Baltimore Crossroads continues its success as a jobs magnet for eastern Baltimore County,” said Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz. “Every time a company chooses Baltimore County, it confirms our strength as a great place to recruit talent and grow a business.”

“When you have a business community that is well-positioned near I-95, Martin State Airport and the White Marsh town center, you have all the pieces in place for successful job creation,” said Councilwoman Cathy Bevins.

Synagro employs over 800 people in 34 states and serves more than 600 municipal and industrial water and wastewater facilities. The company operates facilities and provides equipment that recycles wastewater byproducts for use as fertilizer and biofuels.

“While we serve the entire country, being in the heart of the northeast corridor made sense for our business. Baltimore County offers proximity to a major airport and many of our largest customers,” explained Eric Zimmer, president and CEO of Synagro. “The relocation of our corporate headquarters allowed us to tap into the tremendous skilled talent pool in the greater Baltimore area and create jobs for the future.”

Synagro adds to the growing number of corporate headquarters at Baltimore Crossroads, a new employment center made possible when the State and Baltimore County built the extension of Maryland Route 43 to open 1,000 acres of land for business and job creation.

Earlier this month, Reliable Churchill, the largest wine and spirits distributorship in Maryland, announced it was bringing its headquarters and 500 employees to Baltimore Crossroads. BGE HOME, Atlantic Design, Inc., PEVCO also have their corporate headquarters at Baltimore Crossroads.

In April 2013, St. John Properties announced Greenleigh at Crossroads, adjacent to the business park. Greenleigh at Crossroads, a 200-acre, $100 million mixed use neo-traditional development, will include mid-rise Class “A” office, and a mix of detached single family, town homes, multi-family and condos, open spaces, and park lands.

Baltimore Crossroads is a 1,000-acre business community on Maryland Route 43, near Interstate 95 in White Marsh/Middle River. Once completed, it will feature nearly 5.5 million square feet of space, including office and flex space, manufacturing/industrial, retail amenities, and a mix of homes, luxury apartments and open space.
