EVAPCO Announces Expansion, Adding 275 New Jobs in Carroll County

ANNAPOLIS, MD — Governor Wes Moore today announced that EVAPCO, Inc.​, a global designer and manufacturer of evaporative cooling and industrial refrigeration products, is expanding its Taneytown operations for the second time in a decade. Located at 5151 Allendale Lane, the Carroll County manufacturer will add 45,000 square feet of office space to its headquarters over the next two years. EVAPCO plans to create 275 new jobs in Taneytown, bringing its employment to more than 840 workers in the county.

“EVAPCO has been one of Maryland’s powerhouse companies for decades and its reach now extends across the globe,” said Gov. Moore. “We’re thrilled that the company will continue expanding and innovating in Carroll County, creating hundreds of new jobs, and making Maryland more competitive.”

To assist with project costs, the Maryland Department of Commerce has approved a $1.4 million conditional loan through Advantage Maryland. The state is also providing a $200,000 grant through the Partnership for Workforce Quality program. The company is also eligible for various tax credits, including the More Jobs for Marylanders program and the state’s Job Creation Tax Credit.

“EVAPCO had several options when considering where to expand. Fortunately, the state of Maryland in conjunction with Carroll County Economic Development provided programs such as Advantage Maryland and More Jobs for Marylanders, which led to our decision to expand in Taneytown,” said Senior Vice President of Global Operations Bill Jones. “As more companies are investing outside of the U.S., EVAPCO is proud to make this investment here in Maryland, especially in Carroll County.”

EVAPCO products are manufactured in 23 locations in 10 countries around the world and supplied through a sales network of more than 200 offices.

“This a win-win-win for Maryland, Carroll County, and, of course, EVAPCO,” said Maryland Department of Commerce Secretary Kevin Anderson. “We’re proud that a strong, innovative company like EVAPCO has made its home in Maryland, and we look forward to continued growth and partnership in the future. We thank them for investing in Maryland once again.”

“Carroll County is committed to economic development initiatives that support the growth of resident businesses and we are thrilled to congratulate EVAPCO on its planned expansion in the county,” said Carroll County Commissioner Joe Vigliotti, District 1. “We are proud to be home to EVAPCO’s world headquarters and are excited that the company will expand its footprint in Taneytown and add new job opportunities for our community. I also want to thank the Maryland Department of Commerce for an outstanding partnership to secure this EVAPCO expansion in Maryland.”
