About Western Maryland
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.
We serve Hagerstown, Maryland and other Western MD towns.
