Buffalo, NY – Industrial Materials Recycling, LLC (IMR) of Buffalo has moved its operations and administration offices from Dorothy Street in Buffalo to Steel Works Industrial Park in Lackawanna, NY.

IMR is a leading recycling company committed to reusing, reducing, and recycling plastics and other materials for the benefit of customers and the environment. The company buys, processes and sells plastics, paper and metal scrap depending on customer needs. The company recycles more than 10 million pounds of material a year, helping customers turn waste stream materials into a revenue source. At the same time, this activity keeps a tremendous amount of waste out of landfills.

The site of the former Bethlehem Steel Galvanizing Plant, Cold Mill and Hot Mill facilities, now know as the Steel Works Industrial Park, is evolving into a vibrant light industrial center for commerce and is ready to continue a proud heritage of industry on the Buffalo Niagara Frontier

Over 1,000,000 square feet of space ranging from 5,000 to 500,000 square feet is available for tenants including more than 16,000 square feet of office space. Steel Works is situated on approximately 95 acres between the City of Lackawanna and the town of Hamburg, NY with close access to major roadways including I-90 and nine miles from the Peace Bridge.

“For a company like IMR, Steel Works Industrial Park provides the advantages of high-bay space and a large, open manufacturing area perfectly suited for their operations.” commented Chris Wietig, special projects director for Frontier Group of Companies, owner of Steel Works.

The unique layout of Steel Works and mix of light manufacturing tenants is bringing new life to the old steel plant. IMR is discovering operational efficiency as well as new opportunities by providing recycling services to other Steel Works tenants.

IMR employs 20 people and expects to hire additional staff.
