June 5th, 2015 by WCBC Radio

Maryland Governor Larry Hogan met with executives from Shimadzu Corp., a Kyoto, Japan-based multinational corporation, and announced that the company plans to expand its U.S. headquarters in Columbia, Md., by investing $20 million and creating an Innovation Center focused on new product research, development and engineering. The company has operated its U.S. subsidiary, Shimadzu Scientific Instruments, in Columbia since 1975 and currently has 200 employees in Maryland. The center, which will be developed over the next five years and create 25 new jobs, will enable Shimadzu to better align itself with new technologies being developed in the U.S., particularly in the Washington, D.C. and Baltimore metropolitan area. This meeting took place in Japan as part of Governor’s Hogan 12-day trade mission to Korea, China and Japan.
