Husky Labs leaves Hampden for new life in cyberspace


Husky Labs, regarded as one of Maryland's most promising start-up information technology companies, has moved to cyberspace.

Vice President Monica Larson said yesterday that Husky, which designs World Wide Web pages for clients who want to be on the Internet, will now operate with most employees working out of their homes and connected by a computer network.

She said the physical headquarters of the company will be outside Shepherdstown, W.Va., at the home to which she and her husband, company founder David Larson Levine, have recently moved.

Husky Labs had been based in a loft above the old Hampden town hall on Falls Road.

Husky Labs had recently begun to assume a high-profile role in Baltimore, and Mr. Levine recently gave one of the lead presentations at the Greater Baltimore Committee's annual technology dinner.

Ms. Larson said Husky would continue to be active in Baltimore business affairs, though perhaps not at the same level.

The move is more of a symbolic loss for the city than an economic development blow.

While Husky has assembled a blue chip list of clients -- including Coca-Cola, National Public Radio, CBS and The Baltimore Sun Co. -- its total work force is only seven, three of whom had worked in Baltimore.
