Web services and design firm The Canton Group has made 15 new hires, bringing the full-time employee count at its Baltimore office on O’Donnell Street to 55.

Founded in 1998, the company provides a range of services — website design, managed hosting, IT management and more — to governments, universities, nonprofits and other businesses. (The Canton Group was one of eight companies, and the only Baltimore-based one, that bid to redesign the City of Baltimore’s website.)

Baltimore city, however, is one of The Canton Group’s current clients, along with the Johns Hopkins University, the Abell Foundation and the Maryland Department of Education, said Chris Forhan, the recently hired Director of Digital Strategy at the company. Forhan said projected revenues for 2014 will be somewhere between $17 million and $25 million.
