(Vocus/PRWEB) December 09, 2010
Olympia Steel Buildings recently announced sale and delivery of a 12,100 s.f. Olympia pre-engineered steel building that will be constructed as a 75-foot tall processing tower for Oklahoma Materials Recycling LLC of Collegeville, Pennsylvania. The processing tower, to be located in Atopka, Oklahoma, is part of a new molybdenum oxide recycling plant that will process spent catalyst from the oil refinery industry and recover molybdenum oxide, used as an additive the in the steel industry for stainless steel and other steel alloys. Officials helped break ground on July 13, 2010 on the construction of the 19 million dollar recycling factory. The plant, sited in Atoka, Oklahoma, is Oklahoma Materials Recycling’s first metal oxide manufacturing plant. The facility is expected to be complete by the second quarter of 2011 and initial operation is expected to commence sometime in 2011.
“We were extremely happy to win the bid to supply the steel building for this recycling plant project,” stated Lucas Hocker, Vice President of Sales. “We are a Green company. Supplying steel buildings and metal building systems for recycling plants is who we are and what we like to do. Not only are we providing steel buildings that are themselves recyclable, cost-effective, energy-efficient and Green, but by supplying pre-engineered steel buildings to the recycling industry, we are helping in the important effort to recycle rare metals and natural resources that can be used for other ends.”
The new facility in Atoka's city industrial park will make use of an existing 30,000 square foot building, and will add a 75-foot tall Olympia Steel Buildings pre-engineered steel building to be fitted out as a processing tower to the project. Company officials said that millions of dollars in federal and state guaranteed loans helped make this factory a realization. OMR chose Atoka in part because of its location and economic incentives.
