Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (PRWEB) March 29, 2012
Universal Steel Buildings Corp. recently announced that their construction division will complete construction of a twelve-thousand three-hundred square foot metal warehouse building for Pennsylvania company, Metalico, Inc. Universal Steel Buildings construction division was selected to supply the Olympia Steel Buildings pre-engineered building, provide all concrete work and construct the building. The eighty-two by one hundred fifty foot pre-engineered steel building with a twenty-foot eave height will be used for a warehouse for non-ferrous scrap metal sales. The order was placed on December 12, 2011 and the building was delivered on January 7 2012. The new building, an attractive pearl gray with rustic red trim and 1:12 pitch screw-down Galvalume roof will be attached to an existing building at the company’s Neville Island site. Construction is slated for completion by April 1, 2012
“They were very easy customers to work with,” stated Victor Gutierrez III, Universal Steel Buildings sales manager, speaking about Metalico, Inc. “Once they met with us, toured the metal building factory and saw the quality and precision engineering, they were sold on Olympia Steel Buildings.”
Metalico operates both ferrous and non-ferrous scrap metal recycling facilities in New York, Pennsylvania and Ohio, serving U.S. and Canadian markets. All forms of metal scrap are purchased from manufacturers, small scrap dealers, demolition contractors and peddlers. Metalico Pittsburgh is a full-service metals recycling company that plays a leading role in scrap metals recovery both in the U.S. and abroad. They emphasize that recycling of metals saves natural resources, energy, and consumption of scarce landfill space. Metalico scrap locations are positioned to offer easy access to peddlers and local residents, and encourage recycling of metal scrap, such as siding, window frames and doors, which typically end up in landfills. They are one of a handful of companies in the U.S. that own and operate the state-of-the-art Texas Shredder model 80/104 for the shredding of scrap metal. Easy access to the facility by barge from the Allegheny, Monongahela and Ohio Rivers allows Metalico to handle the largest demolition and recycling jobs. The POHC Railroad also services their Neville Island facilities.
The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has recognized the company's use of renewable wind energy and named Metalico as a Green Power Partner. Metalico continues to contribute to efforts to use renewable energy, reduce pollution and encourage recycling.
“Because Metalico prides itself on being a Green company, the decision to go with Olympia was easy,” Gutierrez observes. “Pre-engineered steel buildings are inherently Green, and since the steel building factory itself is located just a few miles away from the construction site, it meets Green building requirements of sourcing materials locally as well.”
