About Western Maryland

Western Maryland is in an excellent location for manufacturers. Several major highways run through this area — including I-81, I-70, and I-68. This allows manufacturers to easily move materials from West Virginia, Ohio, and Pennsylvania, as well as ship finished goods through the Mid-Atlantic transportation hubs of Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Norfolk.

Hagerstown and Frederick are surprisingly close to major Mid-Atlantic cities, including Baltimore (1.5 hours), Washington, DC and the Pentagon (under 2 hours), Philadelphia (3 hours), Pittsburgh (3 hours), and New York (4 hours).

Because of the extensive airport infrastructure and proximity to the Beltway’s collection of headquarters and facilities, Hagerstown has become a thriving location for aerospace and military contractors to develop new products. And thanks to the skilled workforce, lower cost of living, and large concentration of superhighways in the region, advanced manufacturers see Western Maryland as an ideal spot for their plant.

Since our Lancaster plant is only 2 hours from Western Maryland and easily accessible by major highways, K&L Plating is the right choice for your metal plating & finishing needs.
