Businesses report plans to create almost 200 jobs

Several businesses have told state and local government officials that they planned to create a total of almost 200 jobs, Maryland's Department of Business and Economic Development said Monday.

Some of the plans are short-term, while others will take a few years to complete. XLHealth in Baltimore told economic development officials that it intended to hire an additional 50 to 60 nurses and pharmacists this year, for instance, while EA Engineering, Science and Technology said it planned to add 40 jobs over the next four years as it moves into a new headquarters under construction in Hunt Valley.

Other companies that shared expansion plans with officials in July included defense contractor Invertix, which said it would hire about 25 people for its Annapolis Junction office, and the National Children's Museum at National Harbor in Prince George's County, which said it planned to hire 60 to 70 employees when its first phase opens in 2013.

Laurel-based Mobern Lighting, meanwhile, told officials that it had added 30 jobs so far this year.
