Laytonsville, Md. –Bill Meissner, president and managing partner of Ruppert Properties, is pleased to announce that Alliance Lighting has signed a long-term lease at 9125 Guilford Rd in Columbia, MD. The location, known as Rivers Technology Park, is part of a three building portfolio that was purchased by Ruppert in March 2015. Just minutes from Columbia Town Center, routes 29, 32 and I-95, the property features three single-story brick office/flex buildings totaling 100,000 square feet.

“We are pleased to welcome Alliance Lighting to their new space at Rivers Technology Park,” stated Bill Meissner.  They are a highly respected and established business and make an excellent addition to the park.”

Alliance Lighting, a supplier of high-end commercial and residential lighting controls, chose Rivers Tech due to its centralized location and professional setting. “The timing was right, our previous location was being sold and we needed something with more square footage,” replied Mike Devlin, president of Alliance Lighting.  “A lot of love and creativity went into the design of our new space to help showcase what Alliance Lighting is all about.”
