The former Fibrex building on Scott Road is no longer vacant. Waste handling company NewAlta is leasing a small portion of the facility. The firm processes used oils and solvents at chemical valley sites and then ships them to market. Manager Tim Bechard says their new location focuses on waste hauling and customer service… replacing a Corunna operation.
Mr Bechard says plans are in the works for construction of an expanded Sarnia facility which would allow them to process materials on site and the Scott road site is an option. The Fibrex building became vacant early last year, when the insulation manufacturer ceased production, costing 160 jobs.
