Quality Jobs

From 2023 to 2037, the construction of Quantum Frederick is projected to create 48,000 direct and indirect jobs paying an average of $65,000 per year. Once the site becomes operational, we expect it to continue to support 6,300 new jobs in Frederick County annually.

Both the new jobs constructing Quantum Frederick and the additional activity generated by improved connectivity will add up to 3.1 billion dollars in revenue. This figure includes benefits and other compensation, eventually generating more than $10 billion in local economic activity.

Once operational, Quantum Frederick is expected to generate $37.7 million dollars annually in state property taxes and  25.8 million dollars in county property taxes.
