ANNAPOLIS, MD—A defense contractor company is expanding its operations in Maryland and bringing with it 200 new jobs. Governor Wes Moore announced this week that BlueHalo is expanding its facility in Germantown. The move is expected to create 200 new jobs across the company’s three locations in Maryland.

BlueHalo is a company that develops and manufactures next-generation space, cyber, and artificial intelligence capabilities for customers in the areas of defense, electronics, and cybersecurity. The company plans to use the expanded facility for research, development, and manufacturing.

“In Maryland, we will always choose to invest in innovation. Our continued partnership with BlueHalo is helping us do exactly that,” said Gov. Moore. “The historic expansion we’re announcing today will create jobs, drive growth, and make Maryland more competitive. Our administration proudly supports BlueHalo’s work in Maryland, as they continue to develop cutting-edge strategies to keep us safe.”

The Maryland Department of Commerce is working to secure a $1 million loan for the company through Advantage Maryland. The department is also working with Montgomery County to secure a $100,000 grant for the company.

“BlueHalo is transforming global defense through technical superiority that is only possible by investing in a high-caliber workforce and giving them the resources and facilities to deliver for our customers at mission speed,” said BlueHalo Chief Operating Officer Trip Ferguson. “We’re excited to grow our Maryland operations with expanded R&D and manufacturing capabilities. This is made possible through our strong partnerships with Governor Moore, the Maryland Department of Commerce, and Montgomery County officials, whose shared vision for a thriving defense industrial base made Maryland an easy choice for BlueHalo.”

BlueHalo has 600 employees in Maryland. The company plans to be operational at its new location by the end of the year.
