Tox Path Specialists, LLC will be graduating from the Technical Innovation Center (TIC) at Hagerstown Community College (HCC), the County's hi-tech business incubator. The company first began operations in the TIC in May 2008 and has created 17 new jobs for Washington County biotech professionals.
On his experience in the incubator, Mark Butt, president said "The TIC in general and the support of the staff could not have worked out better for us. Our experience at the TIC proves that a biotech firm can grow quickly through HCC's facility. I do not know of a better-run business incubator in the state of Maryland.
