Hatzel & Buehler Inc., the oldest operating electrical contracting company in the United States, has doubled the amount of space leased with St. John Properties, Inc. to more than 20,000 square feet at Greenleigh in Baltimore County.
The company, which was started in 1884 and whose founders worked with Thomas Edison, has now expanded twice in the past year at 11695 Crossroads Circle, a single-story flex/R&D building. Beginning in early 2021, approximately 30 employees will work in the building. Angelo Munafo and Matt Lenihan of St. John Properties represented the landlord, and Daniel Gummel of PernaFrederick represented Hatzel & Buehler in this transaction.
In 2020, the company acquired the assets and contracts of two companies that served to drive corporate growth and stimulate the need for expanded office space. Last summer, Hatzel & Buehler purchased Enterprise Electric Company, a company active in the greater Baltimore metropolitan region since 1928. In November, the company’s subsidiary Bluestone Communications acquired Beech Tree Network, which specializes in copper and fiber optic structured cabling, wireless solutions and outside plant construction.
