Strouse Plans Expansion in Westminster

Strouse, a die-cut adhesive manufacturer that serves the military and defense, automotive, appliance, and medical industries, is expanding its presence in Carroll County. The company is rel​​ocating and constructing a new headquarters and manufacturing facility in the Westminster Technology Park. Strouse currently employs 65 workers in the county and anticipates adding 25 new jobs over the next four years. The announcement was made at Governor Larry Hogan’s Cabinet meeting today in Carroll County.

“The construction of a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility is a significant milestone and opportunity for Strouse. Our employees are a talented team of professionals, engineering and manufacturing complex adhesive components for global companies like 3M, Ford, and Medtronics,” said Sue Chambers, president and CEO of Strouse. “Our team’s drive for innovation has propelled our growth, enabling us to hire additional staff, invest in their development, and purchase leading-edge equipment and technology to better serve our customers.”

The new 60,000 square foot facility, which will be expandable to 80,000 square feet, is anticipated to break ground this month and tentatively scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2018.

“Strouse’s decision to open a new headquarters and expand its manufacturing operations demonstrates our administration’s commitment to providing better opportunities for our citizens,” said Governor Hogan. “We are proud that manufacturers like Strouse are continuing to do their important work right here in Maryland.”
