Modern housing and below-average unemployment have helped make Germantown a popular and growing town in the state of Maryland.
This means that there has been a rapid rise in demand for good quality, efficient and trustworthy parcel delivery services in the area, so Parcel2Go has become a leading player in helping meet those needs.
The influx the town has seen in recent years is due in large part to the fact that it is the headquarters of the US government’s Department of Energy, which oversees the nation’s nuclear weapons programme, nuclear energy production and waste disposal, and production of nuclear reactors for the American Navy.
With this department looking after an annual budget of $24.1billion, it has helped Germantown become a major centre for energy-based research, with up to one in six of its population working in the sector, which has also been a central reason for the town’s population growth, from 55,000 in 2000, to 85,000 just five years later.
Many of these people are researching alternative forms of fuel, which was a major reason why the Department was created in 1977 by the then US President, Jimmy Carter, in response to the oil crisis which preceded that year.
Such growth has also brought about the birth of all manner of support businesses and industries, which have also been attracted by the proximity of the US capital city, Washington, which is just 20 miles away.
Major hi-tech and pharmaceutical industry companies are among those which have made the town their base.
