HUNT VALLEY, MD. — McCormick & Co., Inc. has announced the opening of its new global headquarters in Hunt Valley, which brings together 1,000 employees previously located across four office buildings. The new site features open floor plans with flexible workspaces, huddle rooms, think tanks and collaboration spaces; test kitchens for product development and flavor innovation; onsite culinary education; and an employee cafe and gourmet coffee bar.
With a nod to sustainability, the construction incorporated locally sourced, reclaimed wood, and the building includes an indoor green roof with native Maryland plantings. The furniture largely is comprised of recycled material, according to the company. McCormick said it will provide compostable serve ware to employees and plans to implement an advanced waste management system.
“Our move to one global headquarters is a transformative step for McCormick — it exemplifies our continued commitment to the Baltimore region and the future of our truly global company,” said Lawrence Kurzius, chairman, president and chief executive officer of McCormick & Co. “Our new location fosters greater collaboration and innovation, while also enhancing McCormick’s sustainability, improving employee health and wellness and bringing our passion for flavor to life. We are thrilled to be in this new space, and I look forward to the great work we’ll do here together.”
