Dutch firm plans Baltimore center

December 22, 1996|BY A SUN STAFF WRITER

AND Software, a Dutch company, will move its North American headquarters and five employees to Baltimore from New York, the Greater Baltimore Alliance has announced.

AND, which makes route-planning, electronic publishing and geographic data products, expects to boost its local complement to 20 workers within two years, GBA said. The company, based in Rotterdam, considered several other U.S. sites, including Raleigh-Durham, N.C., and Philadelphia.

"This is a well-respected, aggressive, growing company in the information technology industry whose commitment to the Baltimore region will help us bring other international technology firms to the area," said Ann Coscia, the GBA's executive director.

AND picked Baltimore because of its proximity to Washington and New York, its travel connections and its relatively low business costs, said Joost Van Dijk, managing director of AND's U.S. operations.
