National Processor, Distributor of Scrap, Secondary Metals to Open Metals Recycling Facility at Rail-Served Park in 2024
DAYTON — Gulf Inland Logistics Park, a 2,400-acre rail-served industrial park developed by Liberty Development Partners, today announced that OmniSource LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Steel Dynamics, Inc (NASDAQ: STLD), has acquired a 55-acre, rail-served tract within Gulf Inland Logistics Park to expand its metals recycling operations along the Gulf Coast.
“OmniSource, a prominent player in North America's scrap and secondary metals industry, has found a strategic home in Gulf Inland Logistics Park,” said Marcus Goering, Principal at Liberty Development Partners. “Their state-of-the-art metals recycling center is part of OmniSource's growth strategy, with Gulf Inland Logistics Park offering unrivaled advantages in the efficient collection, processing, and nationwide distribution of recycled metals.”
The agreement includes the improvement of Rolke Road from U.S. Highway 90 and the construction of a new road within the development, Riverbend Way, as well as the supporting utility infrastructure in Dayton, Texas. Liberty Development Partners and CMC Railroad will also deliver rail and supporting services to OmniSource.
OmniSource operates close to 70 US scrap collection and processing facilities in the U.S. and Mexico, including 11 operating shredders, which can process more than 7 million tons of ferrous scrap annually and more than one billion pounds of nonferrous metals.
“Gulf Inland Logistics Park's strategic proximity to Houston and its direct connectivity to key road and rail networks make it the perfect site for our latest metals recycling facility,” remarked Miguel Alvarez President at OmniSource. “The opportunity to begin operations in 2024 will empower us to quickly enhance our capacity to cater to our customer's demands and significantly extend our footprint throughout the southern United States.”
Liberty Development Partners recently completed the construction of Stilson Road at Gulf Inland Logistics Park. The improvement project involved extending Stilson Road, a 41-foot-wide concrete heavy haul road, and signalization of the intersection at US Highway 90, connecting to the 2,400-acre development. Also currently under construction, Rolke Road will stretch 7,000 feet from Highway 90 to the entrance of Gulf Inland Logistics Park.
As improvements continue, Gulf Inland Logistics Park infrastructure will include railcar storage capacity for an excess of 3,000 railcars, master-planned regional detention, heavy haul roadways, City of Dayton water, sewer and fiber, Centric Infrastructure high-pressure natural gas, and an electric power substation, providing tenants with the services and infrastructure necessary to support any business.
