Barcoding, Inc., a fast-growing company that aims to improve supply chain efficiency, Wednesday announced plans to move its corporate office to 3840 Bank St. in Highlandtown by the end of 2018.
The 31,000-square-foot building in Highlandtown is less than two miles from the company’s current location in Canton. The move will allow Barcoding to consolidate several offices, officials said. Work on the redevelopment is scheduled to begin in March 2018.
Barcoding bought the former I.C. Isaacs & Co. garment factory earlier in 2017 after having a record year of growth. This year Barcoding has acquired two companies, added several key staff members, solidified its presence on the West Coast and expanded its products.
“Although we have had a very successful run in Canton, we have outgrown its capacity,” said Shane Snyder, president of Barcoding. “This move solidifies Barcoding’s commitment to the state of Maryland and the city of Baltimore. As we continue to invest in the city’s infrastructure we hope to positively affect local residents by bringing more employment and innovation opportunities to this historic and vibrant city.”
Barcoding was named Technology Company of the Year in June by the Maryland Tech Council, the state’s largest technology trade association.
Jay Steinmetz, CEO of Barcoding, said, “We look forward to moving into the up-and-coming Highlandtown district. At this point in time construction in Baltimore is lacking, motivating us to double down and create a state-of-the-art facility that will enable us to continue to innovate and grow our roots in this charming city. In addition, as we redevelop the I.C. Isaacs & Co. garment factory, we are doing everything we can to repurpose materials of the building, such as using the original garment tables in our staging configuration area.”
