Howard County Executive Calvin Ball and Howard County Economic Development Authority (HCEDA) joined Cavalier Logistics as they celebrated the opening of their second location in Howard County. Cavalier Logistics is a privately held Veteran-owned small business founded in the United States in 1985. Cavalier specializes in full-service logistics solutions for the commercial and government sectors in the biopharmaceutical industry.
To accommodate their continued growth and success, Cavalier Logistics expanded into a new, state-of-the-art, 87,000 sq. ft. biopharmaceutical storage and logistics building, adding approximately 20 new jobs and growing our local economy. “Cavalier has been conducting business in Howard County, MD for over a decade and, among other reasons, that is due to the business-friendly environment Howard County has created. For our latest project in 2020 the bar was raised significantly. In the middle of a global pandemic, we were able to work with the Howard County team to source, permit, build out, and get signed approvals for our new state of the art Pharmaceutical and Healthcare Service 3PL facility in record time. Not only did Howard County recognize the urgency but they understood the importance of the County being a partner in the project”, said Robbie Nielson, Chief Operating Officer of Cavalier Logistics. “I can honestly say that we would not have achieved our goals without the Howard County team’s assistance. We are delighted to announce that Cavalier has decided to build a third 3PL facility in Maryland in 2021 and where would we choose to expand other than…you guessed it…Howard County!”
“We’re thrilled to have Cavalier expand in Howard County with this second location and plans for a third,” said Howard County Executive Calvin Ball. “Despite the challenges of a pandemic, Cavalier has managed to adapt, create new jobs, and grow revenue. Small, local businesses like Cavalier are foundational to our road to recovery and a strong and prosperous business community in Howard County.”
HCEDA began working with Cavalier Logistics in 2017 with the opening of their initial Howard County location. Since then, HCEDA has assisted with their second location and are eager to provide any business support needed in additional in opening their third location, as well. “When faced with the decision on where to locate their next logistics facility, Cavalier Logistics saw the value that Howard County had to offer through a centralized location, positive business environment, and a welcoming community,” stated Larry Twele, CEO of HCEDA. “The strong relationships they had developed with the HCEDA, local businesses, and the county government made it the ideal location to expand their logistics operation.”
