WALDORF, Md. (Aug. 28, 2016)—On Thursday, Aug. 25, CHUTES International, a leading chutes manufacturer and distributor, opened its newly expanded Charles County facility. Located at 33 Industrial Park Drive in Waldorf, the new facility allows additional space for a second manufacturing line and minimizes products being outsourced. Through a partnership with the Department of Economic Development and the Maryland Department of Commerce, CHUTES secured funding for the new facility. The facility added 15 new Charles County jobs, and the company expects to continue expanding in coming years.
"CHUTES' decision to expand in Charles County is a testament to the cooperation between the county and the State to provide businesses with resources they need to grow and thrive," said Peter F. Murphy, president of the Charles County Board of Commissioners.
"Economic development is a team sport," said Michael Gill, Maryland Secretary of Commerce. "We're on the right path. Being here today with Hadi [President of CHUTES International] and his team makes me feel really good about it."
"Now we are nicely settled into our 45,000-square-foot facility," said Hadi Boustani, president of CHUTES International. "Due, in no small part, to the help and generosity of the State and the county, and thanks to a lot of hard work done by a lot of people who felt CHUTES belonged in Charles County, Maryland."
