Beeton’s Borden Metals wants to add new warehouse

March 26, 2021   ·   0 Comments

Borden Metal Products in Beeton has submitted an Official Plan to re-zone lands from urban residential to an employment area.

The company wants to build a new storage and processing warehouse. The new building would be a 1,172 square foot facility.

The plan is to expand the plant’s facilities to two vacant lots located south of the existing site.

Borden Metal Products has been operating in Beeton for over 50 years.

The company manufactures bar-on-edge gratings as well as a complete line of gratings in riveted, pressure locked, squeeze locked, and resistance welded construction in carbon steel, aluminum, and stainless steel alloys.

Their products include stair treads and roadway gratings that have been installed bridges across North America.

The plant employs approximately 50 people.

Some nearby residents have express concerns about increased traffic, noise, and vibrations, as well the exterior look of the new building.

Studies show there would be no major impact to traffic in the area. The expansion would likely result in up to 16 more trucks entering the facility per day – eight in the morning and another eight in the afternoon.

Other studies indicate that the proposed new building would operate within the provincial limits of sound and vibrations.

The proposal to build could take up to a year to make its way through the approval process.
