The company said Tuesday that is investing $12 million to modernize its Towson campus over five years. The state is providing a $1 million loan combined with $100,000 from Baltimore County to help pay for the project.
The 33-acre facility will become the Construction and Do-It-Yourself world headquarters for the company.
