Maryland Manufacturer Relocates, Bringing Jobs to Pinellas
Maryland company projected to create 15 jobs with more than $2 million capital investment.
ST. PETERSBURG – Intellitech, a manufacturer of liquid filling and closure machinery used in the biotech and pharmaceutical industries, has finished its relocation from Maryland to St. Petersburg.
The company expects to bring 15 manufacturing and headquarters-related jobs to their new location at 11801 28th St. N, St. Petersburg, and to invest more than $2 million in the region.
“I am proud to announce today that Intellitech has completed their headquarters relocation from Maryland to Pinellas County,” Gov. Rick Scott said. “Intellitech chose to move their company to Florida because they were looking for the most business-friendly environment to grow and create new jobs. That is why we are continuing to work each day to cut taxes and make Florida more competitive so we can continue to attract growing businesses.”
Intellitech president Barbara Biller said, “We’re celebrating our 21st year in business, and this relocation will help to push Intellitech to our next level of growth. Pinellas’ medical device manufacturing and life sciences sectors make the city of St. Petersburg the ideal location for Intellitech to connect to both our suppliers and customers.”
Intellitech, celebrating 21 years in business, produces liquid packaging solutions for the bio-tech and pharmaceutical industries in the U.S., Canada and Singapore. Products include the i-FILL® family of liquid fillers for precision filling of micro to multi liters with single-use technology, intelliFILLER™ semi or automatic fill and finish equipment, i-CAP® package closure system and intelliFLEX® conveying system.
“I’d like to welcome Barbara and her team at Intellitech to Pinellas,” county Commissioner Charlie Justice said. “She is joining a very supportive and successful business community, and we are excited to be part of her plans to expand her company.”
St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman said, “I welcome Intellitech to the Sunshine City from Maryland. St. Petersburg has strong specialized manufacturing and life sciences clusters that will provide both a base of workforce talent as well as a great customer base for this growing company. St. Petersburg is an innovative, creative and competitive community that offers one of the best lifestyles for families in the country.”
Mike Meidel, director of Pinellas County Economic Development, said Intellitech would be a great addition to Pinellas’ biotech sector.
