PRINCESS ANNE — Process Integration, one of the newest businesses coming to the Princess Anne Industrial Park, will break ground 10 a.m. Thursday, Sept. 16 during a ceremony hosted by the Somerset County Economic Development Commission and the Princess Anne Chamber of Commerce.
Now operating in West Ocean City, the company that works primarily with the poultry and meat industry providing weighing, labeling, inventory and material handling and custom programing equipment, is now getting into the field of robotics to make machines that can pickup and stack boxes for placement on pallets.
A 20,000 sq. ft. building is planned for its property on the corner of Park Drive and Progress Lane with the ability to add another 18,000 sq. ft. as the business grows. The company anticipates being in the new building by May 2022 with 10 or more new workers.
The three parcels were purchased last year and in June the Town Commissioners went along with the Planning and Zoning Commission’s recommendation to allow this type of activity in the industrial park as it "didn’t fit cleanly" with the park’s covenants, according to Town Manager Clayton Anderson.
Those attending the groundbreaking are asked to RSVP with EDC Administrative Assistant LeeAnn Linton at email@example.com or call 410-651-0500.
