Gateway Recycling doubles space with move to Oregon facility

TOLEDO - Gateway Recycling & Waste Reduction, Inc. plans to complete its move to a building in the City of Oregon by the middle of September.

Ryan Palmier, General Manager of the company's Toledo-area operation, said the business is experiencing growth in its client base and needs additional space.

Gateway has been working out of a 55,000 square-foot building at 1800 N. Water Street in Toledo since July of 2000. The company has applied for a permit to move into 75,000 square feet of the 112,000 square-foot building at 926 Dearborn Ave. in Oregon. Gateway also has a facility in Cleveland.

"We expect very minimal upgrades will be needed to the building, plus the Dearborn site gives us great access to I-280," Palmier said.

The company employs about 20 people at the Toledo facility. The Dearborn Avenue property is owned by Willis Day Properties, Inc. Willis Day operates in excess of 1 million square feet of space in Northwest Ohio and provides warehouse and logistics services in addition to leased space.

"Over the past year we have been extremely aggressive in our pricing, resulting in significant increases in activity," said Willis Day, president of Willis Day Properties, Inc. "With what we're offering, potential tenants would be hard-pressed to find better pricing. We pride ourselves in delivering quality space to our customers, space that is tailored to meet the tenants' specific needs in a timely manner and at the lowest possible cost."

"We also truly appreciate the cooperation that we received from the city of Oregon and the help that they provided to attract Gateway and the jobs that they bring," Day added.

Senior vice presidents Ron Jurgenson and Lynette Reichle of CB Richard Ellis Group, Inc., assisted in the transaction.
