Big news for former Twinsburg Chrysler plant

TWINSBURG, OH (WOIO) - It did not take Twinsburg City Planners long to make good on a promise to make something happen at the massive Chrysler plant site.

An industrial salvage company bought the plant and sold off some of the machinery and has now sold it to a real estate development corporation and independence excavation.

The company has big plans.

Twinsburg Development Director Larry Finch tells 19 Action News "they have the skill and the ambition and resources to demolish the part that's no longer economically viable and salvage the part that has economic potential."

With access to rail and I-480m this is an idea site for business with its huge property and tremendous potential for growth. "It will likely open up almost 100 acres more than 100 acres of new industrial development site within the city of Twinsburg" says Finch.

At its peak, over five thousand people walked in and out of the Twinsburg Plant doors, which generated up to a four million dollars for the city of Twinsburg.

Now, the plant sits idle and those incoming tax dollars are no longer rolling in.

City Services are still very good the and the school district is one of the premier districts in the area but, the city needs some money to pumped out of this site.
