McLaren Engineering Group, an engineering firm, held a ribbon cutting ceremony to open its new corporate office in Bergen County, it announced Friday.
The new Class A corporate office is comprised of 57,000 square feet and has the capacity for more than 250 professionals, the firm said. McLaren currently has a staff of 130.
“We are excited about the growth opportunities for our firm in New Jersey and the expansion of our regional footprint,” Malcolm McLaren, the company’s CEO and president, said “Our new corporate office positions us for future growth while providing the platform to support our numerous New Jersey projects, including most recently the Wittpenn Bridge in Kearny and Caven Point Marine Terminal in Jersey City.”
The office, located at 530 Chestnut Ridge Road in Woodcliff Lake, is close to the Garden State Parkway’s Exit 171 and NJ Transit rail and bus stations.
“Our borough is a prime destination for business, and it’s wonderful to have a leading engineering firm join us. McLaren’s expansion has been exciting for the community, which also houses North American headquarters for BMW and Perillo Tours,” said Woodcliff Lake Mayor Carlos Rendo.
McLaren said in the next few months it will be hiring several dozen workers, including engineers for entry level, project management and senior leadership roles as well as professionals in accounting, information technology, human resources and marketing.
“McLaren Engineering Group’s expansion in North Jersey shows that we have the talent to attract the jobs and businesses here,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer, who spoke at the event. “I will continue to do everything I can in Congress to boost innovative companies like McLaren to North Jersey by cutting taxes and red tape to help our economy thrive.”
The event was hosted by business leaders, including Gottheimer, Tedesco, Rendo and Montvale Township Mayor Mike Ghassali, Bergen County Division of Economic Development Director Joanne Cimiluca, Bergen County Freeholder Tracy Zur, Mahwah Regional Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Sharon Rounds and Montvale Chamber of Commerce Co-President Scott Forman.
