Two years after opening its Aberdeen facility, Battelle Memorial Institute is looking to double the size of its Harford County-based East Coast technology center, the next phase in a long-term growth plan that could eventually have more than 1,000 people working there. That's three years ahead of schedule. When that $20 million first phase of the 78,000- square-foot Battelle Eastern Science & Technology Center - with offices and laboratory space - opened in Aberdeen in December 2002, the Columbus, Ohio-based parent expected it would be at least five years before an expansion would be warranted.

Battelle, one of the largest research organizations in the country, has helped develop some of the most widely used technologies of the past half-century, from the copy machine to bar codes to compact discs. But it will take an action tomorrow in Maryland that it has almost never done in its 72 years, since Ohio industrialist Gordon Battelle willed the creation of the company upon his death. It will plant a shovel at a groundbreaking ceremony. Though the company ranks 259th on Forbes' list of the 500 largest privately held companies in the country, the $20 million facility that it is about to build in Harford County is one of few it has erected outside its base in Columbus, Ohio.

However, it's considerably below the 3.3 percent average annual increase of the past decade.

Harford County Executive James M. Harkins sees quality-of-life issues at the forefront of voters' minds. And he says he can point out ways he has addressed those issues since taking office four years ago. The percentage of the county budget that goes to education and public safety has increased; the troubled Edgewood area is turning around; and a tax increase he instituted has helped to hire teachers and law-enforcement officers, he says. Also, the county has a surplus that has helped it earn improved bond ratings and reduce debt service.
