A local distribution company purchased the former factory and toxic spill site that it had been renting and using as a warehouse at the Valmont Industrial Park in Hazle Township.

Karchner/Riccetti Partners paid $650,000 for the Chromatex plant.

Harold Karchner said his firm obtained the building through a lease purchase and will continue using it as a warehouse.

In accord with the federal Superfund law, Karchner Logistics incurs no liability for the contamination caused by others at the site and will not interfere with the efforts of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to continue cleaning up the site.
