Woodcliff Lake, N.J. — McLaren Engineering Group announced that it will expand to Bergen County, N.J., in August 2018. McLaren signed a 12-year lease on a 57,000-square-foot Class A building at 530 Chestnut Ridge Road in Woodcliff Lake, which has the capacity for over 250 employees.
“This new modern facility in New Jersey will accommodate our firm’s growth, help us attract and retain talent, and position us for future success,” says Malcolm G. McLaren, president and CEO, McLaren Engineering Group, which celebrated its 40th anniversary last year. “We are excited about the growth opportunities in New Jersey and the expansion of our regional footprint.”
The state-of-the-art building, owned by Keystone Property Group, is strategically situated off the Garden State Parkway at exit 171, offering easy access to NJ Transit rail and bus stations.
McLaren’s regional growth continues through its New York City and Albany, N.Y., offices, which employ more than 50, as well as the firm’s marine services operations in Rockland County, N.Y., and Liberty Landing Marina in New Jersey.
“It is wonderful to have a leading engineering firm like McLaren choose Woodcliff Lake for its expanding team,” says Woodcliff Lake Mayor Carlos Rendo. “We are excited to have the firm join our community which is also home to the North American headquarters for BMW and Perillo Tours.”
“Bergen County is happy to welcome McLaren and its employees to Woodcliff Lake,” said Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco. “McLaren’s work is innovative, diversified and highly respected which makes them a great match for Bergen County. Our highly educated and skilled workforce, excellent schools and parks, and diverse downtowns and shopping centers make our region one of the most attractive places to locate a business.”
