The area around Columbia and Annapolis Junction along Route 32 is home to lots of tech talent, and it just picked up a couple more companies.

On Monday, cybersecurity company Anchor Technologies announced a move from Annapolis to Columbia. The firm’s new space at 6315 Hillside Ct. is three times the original, at 4,500 square feet. The 15-year-old company is looking to grow its offering that looks to help secure small businesses, called BlueRing. The new space will provide room to add to its current staff of 12.

With a training room and other additional space, Anchor is also hoping to host community-facing events, said Anchor Technologies CEO Peter Dietrich, a longtime Howard County resident.

This week also brought news that Infors USA moved its U.S. headquarters to Annapolis Junction. The Switzerland-based company manufactures bioreactors and shakers for laboratories, and makes a software platform called eve for managing bio processing data.

Infors USA CEO Peter Tunon, who was appointed to that role in February, told Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology News that the 27,000-square-foot facility will handle manufacturing of incubated shakers and accessories, as well as being the stateside home base for administration and sales. The new location was opened after the company’s U.S. business tripled in three years.

“Our solutions are mainly used in biotechnological, biological, and medical research, as well as production of biological drugs,” Tunon said to GEN.

Speaking of entrepreneurship news in the middle Maryland area, the next edition of Startup Grind Columbia is set for March 28 at the Maryland Center for Entrpreneurship. The fireside chat guest is Dr. Jeffrey Hausfield of Frederick-based Biofactura, which moved into its own manufacturing facility in 2015.
