The world renowned book publisher Penguin Random House has grown its Maryland presence once again, this time planning 150 new jobs at its new distribution facility in Hampstead.
The company recently added a second distribution center in Carroll County after the success of its largest nationwide site in Westminster. This expansion will bring the company’s total employment in the state to 870 workers.
“We have been enormously pleased with our Westminster Distribution and Fulfillment center. So, when we decided to expand into a fourth facility to support our continued nationwide focus on growth and innovation, it was a natural decision to select a second Maryland location,” said Annette Danek, executive vice president, supply chain, of Penguin Random House.
“We are enthusiastic about the many terrific possibilities our Hampstead site can realize for our authors, booksellers, publishing partners—and for the career opportunities for our Westminster colleagues, and new job opportunities for Marylanders,” she said.
