New York Recycler Plans Fourth Service Center
Upstate Shredding-Weitsman Recycling has begun work on a new steel warehouse at the company's Ben Weitsman of Rochester facility at 80 Steel Street. The facility will become the company’s fourth metal service center.
Work on the new 10,000-square-foot facility has already begun, with the opening of the new warehouse scheduled for January 2015.
"We look forward to expanding our new steel business into the Rochester market. Our initiative this year has been on further growing the new steel division companywide, and this fits in perfectly with our strategy," says Adam Weitsman, owner of Upstate Shredding-Weitsman Recycling.
The company already maintains steel sales locations in Binghamton, Oswego and Ithaca, all in New York.
"We anticipate becoming a major player in the new steel business throughout the Northeast as our footprint for scrap recycling continues to aggressively grow. The two complement each other well," Weitsman says.
Once opened in January, the new steel warehouse will stock and distribute structural, flats and rounds, plate and sheet, bar stock, tubing and pipe in steel, aluminum and stainless. The Rochester location will also saw cut and shear, as well as perform rebar fabrication.
Upstate Shredding-Weitsman Recycling currently has 17 locations throughout New York and Pennsylvania. The company will process more than 1 million tons of ferrous and 250 million pounds of nonferrous in 2014.
