1800 new jobs headed for Harford County

Bel Air, MD - When you see it from the road and you may think that the Wegman's market is one of several businesses in the new Box Hill development. But look' one big store. A really big store that is hiring now. One hundred and 50 full time jobs, more than 400 part time jobs...and that's not all. I don't think that people appreciate how many jobs are generated in the development business" Jim Martin's company Ward Properties is developing Box Hill. More is scheduled to be built on the site this year....along with room for expansion two to three years from now. And even before one person buys a grape from Wegman’s, local jobs have been created. “Our
site contractor is Couma Construction and they employ 40 and 50 people
out on the site at any point during the day from grading to utilities
and in addition to that they have subcontractors mason's who are doing
the brick work retaining wall was a big project there was $800,000 in
the retaining wall alone." Over the past three to four years 57
new companies have relocated and open in Harford County ranging from
retail to rocket science. That has generated more than three thousand jobs. The new arrivals have also raised the average income of the county from $73,000 to $83,000 a year. Wegman’s
and a new Kohl's online center at the old GAP distribution building
will bring in large numbers of unskilled and skilled jobs. The kind of jobs that stabilize communities. "It's
not a BRAC type of job in addition to the jobs that are coming with
BRAC these are different industries they see the vitality of the greater
Baltimore region and Harford county in particular and the fact there's a
workforce that's here and reach their markets in one case a local
market and the other an East Coast distribution market" Harford County
Economic Development Director James Richardson says. Wegman's isn't the only place that will be hiring in the development. Two restaurants are also planned. If you're interested in one of the Wegman’s jobs you can go on line at and apply now. But on Monday they're employment center just down Emmorton road from the construction site will open.
