Smartronix Breaks Ground on New Corporate Campus

Hollywood, Maryland - 7 August 2007 – Smartronix officially celebrated groundbreaking for the company’s future corporate campus, which will be located on approximately 15 acres a few miles from the current corporate headquarters in California, Maryland.

For now, said M. Arshed Javaid, president and co-founder, the company is building a 50,000-square-foot facility on the Hollywood property that will include engineering and manufacturing space, a shipping and receiving area and a machine shop in the basement level; as well as offices for the corporate staff. The 15 acre Smartronix site has the capability of hosting two more facilities.

"Smartronix has simply outgrown the current location," said Alan Parris, co-founder and vice president of Smartronix’ engineering operation, and is building the new facility to meet the needs of the growing workload.

In the area immediately surrounding the current corporate headquarters, Smartronix has 110 employees who work either at the corporate office, at Patuxent River Naval Air Station or at Webster Field.
