Associated Press

LEE, Mass. — A Wisconsin-based development company has bought three vacant paper mills in western Massachusetts and is talking with local officials and others about how to use the properties.

Niagara Worldwide of Niagara, Wisconsin, bought the Columbia and Greylock mills in Lee and the Niagara Mill in Lenox Dale. The sale prices weren’t disclosed.

Niagara President Eric Spirtas told The Berkshire Eagle (http://bit.ly/1kmp41j ) that his company is working with local officials, other developers and prospective tenants on possible redevelopment of the mills, which were closed more than six year ago by previous owner Schweitzer-Mauduit International. Spirtas also says the company will be seeking the public’s input.

The Columbia and Niagara mills date back to the 1800s, while the Greylock Mill was built in the mid-1960s. All three are in residential neighborhoods.

Niagara Development buys NewPage mill – Date: Friday, February 11, 2011, 4:14pm CST

Niagara Development buys NewPage mill
The Milwaukee Business Journal

Manufacturing, Commercial Real Estate

NewPage Wisconsin System Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of NewPage Corp., and Niagara Development LLC announced Friday that Niagara Development has acquired the NewPage mill property and assets in Niagara, Wis.

The NewPage Niagara facility permanently closed in 2008 because of a drop in demand for coated paper. The paper machines at the Niagara mill produced about 250,000 tons of lightweight coated ground-wood papers used in magazines and catalogs. In March 2009, NewPage sold its hydroelectric facility in Niagara, in Marinette County, to Northbrook Wisconsin LLC.

Niagara Development is exploring options with the city of Niagara and others for possible uses of the property and assets going forward.

“Since the closure of the mill in 2008, NewPage has worked with the city of Niagara to locate a viable purchaser for the mill with a positive outcome for the community,” said George Bousley, mayor of the city of Niagara.

Based in Miamisburg, Ohio, NewPage Corp. is one of the largest coated paper manufacturers in North America. NewPage owns paper mills in Wisconsin, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota and Nova Scotia, Canada.

Niagara Development has acquired several former industrial properties with various development plans to maximize land and site assets.

When its too good to be true, It ain’t True! Eric J. Spirtas

As I entered the enormous industrial facility site, I knew that the prospect of a good deal was slim to none.  The plant was hidden, the buildings looked skinny and the ground at the base of the structures seamed cluttered with apparent environmental impediments to easy, efficient demolition money making demolition.

What to do… even if there is a prospect of a deal, I know the owner is going to be hard pressed to “give away” the dollars that we see as necessary to do the job. 

“What?  You want to pay me how much and you also want me to do the environmental,”
I imagine
the owner will say?!?!?

I had to have the courage to walk on the site, walk through the buildings and make an estimate.  I had to have the confidence to share what I really find!

It didn’t take long to assess the facts:

  1. There are some significant environmental factors and I will not accept anything but full and proper handling of those conditions.
  2. There is not as much steel as expected.
  3. The buildings are not as large as was explained.
  4. There is quite a bit of trash and debris that will cost someone, something to deal with.
  5. This is a LOUSY neighborhood… Did I say Lousy?… I mean Lousy!
  6. Once I figured out; the size, ton-age, hindrance from environmental, and ultimate dollars

It was easy to see that this is a “Walk Away”!

There is so much opportunity, variable projects, abundance of property / asset for sale and the need for expert buyers, consulting, scrap sales, property brokers.  That is what we do!

Let me know if you have a former industrial plant, resulting property and even environmental conditions that trouble you.  We will buy your problem from you.

Contact: EJ Spirtas Group, LLC and more specifically the specialty branch AMAX to tend to your property & asset troubles!

Ready to buy a plant – 12,000 Tons of Steel – Eric J. Spirtas – EJ Spirtas Group

Another day, another 12,000 Tons!

It looks like I will have the opportunity to acquire another former industrial manufacturing plant tomorrow and that means a lucky demolition contractor will get the opportunity to demolish the buildings and prepare the scrap for me and my partners.

I have been successfully selling scrap to for the last two decades and now with a few NEW relationships the sales have become (“Global”)!

This is great for the smaller contractor that has often been stuck with minimal pricing offered by the tiny scrap dealers in “Small Town USA”.  We “EJ Spirtas Commodities, LLC” offers a price that, up to now, only the largest demolition contractor has had access to.

We can ship materials by the container, so long as the materials are prepared to a 5 foot by 2 foot (by 2 foot) size.  If you can load a container, we can deliver a container right to your site and you will reap the  reward of the top salvage dollars.

This goes for STEEL or NON – FERROUS.

Bidding a Church in a Small American Community – By Eric J. Spirtas

leave a comment »

I was hired to bid on a small community church.  This is no “small” order.

Once a doctor was telling me as I was getting my appendix out, “Don’t worry Eric, your safe with me, I remove 8 appendix’s a day… Yeah Doc, but this is my appendix!

Well, this may be your Church, and while it may not be Lambeau Field or Mile High Stadium, there is a process and a program to assist an owner in the efforts of  properly preparing the site for its next responsibility.

“Care, Custody and Control”!

No matter where the demolition, you have the administrative busy work:

  1. Permitting
  2. Utility Terminations
  3. Asbestos
  4. Environmental Items
  5. Communicating with the Police, Fire, DOT, Local Municipality

Then you have the work itself:

  1. Labor
  2. Materials
  3. Equipment
  4. Transportation
  5. Disposal

Specialized equipment and circumstanses even drive the pricing higher.  Salvage or below grade work, the details to every demolition are different. 

Where I think a demolition contractor can shine is in the ability to share ideas with the client.

  • Special ways to minimize fencing costs
  • Salvage tricks that can gain dollars for the client and minimize disposal costs
  • Think GREEN with the disposition of materials (“Reduce, Reuse, Recycle!”)
  • Communicate and share your detailed bid… this may trigger ideas in a wise clients mind – promoting savings
  • The job is about the CLIENT, not about the contractor.

I really think that a contractor has reached a level of complacency if they only bid by “Unit Pricing”.  There is a level of creativity that is lost and a level of efficiency that is surrendered if the contractor is not figuring the project “Long Hand” considering all of the issues that may occur and pricing the project accordingly.

For assistance with bidding, pricing, bid presentation, demolition and related construction project management, do not hesitate to contact Eric J. Spirtas.
