Scrap metal company renovates facility
A long-time scrap metal company is renovating and moving into a facility across town after acquiring the property.
West Side Iron and Metal in Grand Rapids will move from its location at 300 Straight Ave. SW to a 26,341-square-foot building at 215 Hall St. SW.
The facility is expected to be ready next summer.
The modern scrap metal recycling facility is on a 3.5-acre property, which West Side Iron and Metal purchased last year. Stan Wisinski of NAI Wisinski of West Michigan helped broker the deal.
West Side Iron and Metal is a family owned scrapyard that started in 1983. It buys ferrous and non-ferrous metals, high-grade electronic scrap, industrial plastic and catalytic converters.
The scrap metal company is “very excited at the new opportunities our Hall Street location will provide us,” said Vincent Gargagliano, owner, West Side Iron and Metal.
Wisinski added that West Side Iron and Metal has been “very successful over the years and has out grown their current location.”
“We felt the Hall Street location provided West Side the ample space and convenient location to be successful,” Wisinski said.
