BALTIMORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Merritt Properties announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Miller’s Minuteman Press for a 36,450-square-foot office and production facility in Owings Mills. The building will serve as the company’s new corporate headquarters, allowing them to further centralize their production facility and expand their operations.
Located at 11195 Dolfield Boulevard, the single-story, build-to-suit project will be constructed on approximately 7.5 acres within Merritt’s Owings Mills business park. The lot and building will be owned by Keith Miller, owner of Miller’s Minuteman Press.
Miller’s Minuteman Press, a graphic design, print and mailing company, is one of the largest Minuteman Press franchises worldwide. The new building will allow Miller’s Minuteman Press to add new equipment, additional employees and service offerings. With this expansion, they expect to increase their workforce by 30% initially and double it by the end of their second year in the new facility.
Merritt Properties’ construction division, Merritt Construction Services, is preparing to begin construction this spring, with an anticipated completion date in early fall. The new office headquarters and production facility will support the franchise’s four storefronts located in Pikesville, Hunt Valley, Towson and Westminster, as well as their outside salesforce servicing the greater Baltimore metro area.
“Expanding our facility is an exciting opportunity for Miller’s Minuteman Press. It highlights our exponential growth and differentiates our business model and extensive capabilities. We look forward to further strengthening our ties within the Baltimore community,” comments Miller’s Minuteman Press President and CEO Keith Miller.
The new building is part of Merritt’s Owings Mills development located along Red Run and Dolfield boulevards in Owings Mills. The business park currently includes eight buildings totaling more than 600,000 square feet of office and flex space.
“The new headquarters for Miller's Minuteman Press brings new jobs and new investment to the Owings Mills business community,” said Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz. “We’re pleased to see that this growth by a locally owned business in a successful business park is being developed by another locally owned company.”
Lou Boeri represented Merritt in the transaction.
