Baltimore County is now Maryland's second largest job center. Our diverse business community of more than 19,000 companies can be found on corporate campuses in White Marsh, Hunt Valley and Owings Mills, in research and development facilities at UMBC and Towson University, inside federal headquarters of the Social Security Administration and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services and in the neighborhood shops of our traditional downtowns. With nationally recognized public schools and a variety of tight-knit communities, Baltimore County is more than just a great place to do business. It's a great place for the people who make businesses work. Read a brief overview of Baltimore County (PDF) and its enviable business climate.

We invite you to share in our success. When your company is ready to expand, relocate or add new employees, contact us for confidential assistance. We can assist with site selection, financing, workforce development and training. We can help you make the most of Enterprise Zones, tax credits and international trade opportunities, while connecting you with a wide variety of resources to help your business.

New regional partnerships enable companies to maximize business opportunities. The extension of Maryland Route 43 in Middle River has opened a new 1,000 business community in eastern Baltimore County. Hunt Valley is a center for multi-national corporations. Construction is under-way at the Metro Center at Owings Mills, a transit-oriented town center anchored by a public library and community college, main street retail, offices and homes.

Our staff is available now. We look forward to working with you.
