ITT Corp. has chosen Hanover over New York and Colorado as the site of a new information technology facility that will create 90 jobs over the next four years and serve the company's offices worldwide, Anne Arundel County officials said Monday.
The company's Information Technology Global Center of Excellence will open Aug. 1 in Arundel Mills Corporate Park.
Anne Arundel County competed with five potential sites, including locations in New York and Colorado, and was chosen in part because of the proximity to Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport and an array of hotels, officials said.
The new facility will allow White Plains, N.Y.,-based ITT, a high-technology engineering and manufacturing firm, to centralize its IT and training function and expand its presence in Maryland, where it employs 600 people.
The county and the state Department of Business and Economic Development will offer training and job assistance to help staff the center.
