Flir Systems Inc., a thermal imaging (infrared) systems manufacturer based in Wilsonville, Ore., is opening an 80,000-square-foot engineering and manufacturing facility in Elkridge on Wednesday.
A ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled with attendees from Howard County government, Maryland’s congressional delegation, state agencies and officials from the departments of Defense and Homeland Security.
The company is moving from a smaller, 35,000-square-foot facility, also located in Elkridge.
The new location in the Troy Hill Commerce Center is designed to accommodate existing development and production programs and prepare for future growth.
More than 70 employees, consultants and subcontractors will work in the new facility.
