1747 Dorsey Road at Route 100 Tech Park in Hanover, MD.California-based Rosendin Electric is expanding its Maryland footprint for the third time in six years.

The company recently signed a lease for 36,000 square feet of office space at 1747 Dorsey Road inside the Route 100 Tech Park in Hanover.

It is the third expansion since 2013 when Rosendin moved into the mid-Atlantic market and leased 3,000 square feet at the Cromwell Business Park in Glen Burnie. It has remained at the 135-acre location in Anne Arundel County and grown since then, currently occupying 13,320 square feet.

The move to Hanover will take place early next year.

In the additional space, Rosendin officials said Monday they plan to add a power renewables group to focus on servicing solar and wind power projects east of the Mississippi River. Rosendin’s large local clients include government contractors at Fort Meade, the Johns Hopkins Health System and Exelon Corp.

“We find the business environment throughout Maryland, Delaware, and Pennsylvania extremely robust,” said Bennett Rhodes, division manager for Rosendin, based in San Jose, California.

The company is employee-owned and is celebrating its centennial this year. Rhodes said Rosendin has 15 office locations across the U.S. with more than 7,000 employees.

The move to the 125,000-squarer-foot Route 100 Tech Park near Interstates 95 and 97 will allow the company’s growth to continue, he said. The company’s Maryland operation was named one of the Best Places to Work by the Baltimore Business Journal in May.

The park has single-story office and retail space and was developed by St. John Properties. Lacey Johansson, leasing representative for St. John Properties, represented the landlord in the deal and Andrew Meeder and Dan Hudak of the MacKenzie Cos. represented Rosendin.
