Ironmark Completes Move To New Headquarters in Howard County, Maryland
ANNAPOLIS JUNCTION, MD—Ironmark, an image company that provides integrated creative, print, marketing and logistics services, has completed a move to Howard County, which consolidates its Annapolis, MD, and Hunt Valley, MD, operations. The company's 110 employees, who previously worked in Annapolis and Hunt Valley, have relocated to a brand-new, 50,000-square-foot facility.
"This new location will bring all of our talent under one roof in a building designed for increased productivity, workflow efficiency and a truly unique experience for visiting customers and vendors," said Ironmark CEO Jeff Ostenso.
The move comes three years after Frank Gumpert Printing, based in Annapolis, and Corporate Printing Solutions, based in Hunt Valley, merged to become CPS Gumpert. Earlier in September, the company was renamed as Ironmark and underwent a complete rebranding.
