Hampden project on schedule for April opening
Fiberight has made significant progress since the July MRC Board of Directors meeting, and remains on schedule for the April 2018 facility opening. Site clearing and grubbing has been completed, and the project is now moving into more extensive site preparation for the 145,000 square foot building, which is anticipated to arrive in October.
Fiberight closed on its equity funding in August, which has allowed it to order both the building and the recycling system while it completes detail engineering and awards contracts for the "wet end" of the facility; in all cases working closely with the DEP and Town of Hampden to ensure full permit compliance. Where possible Fiberight is using local contractors to perform its construction work, and the vast majority of the equipment to be installed in the facility is made in the USA.
We will be inviting all members and supporters to a cornerstone laying ceremony this fall, please keep a watch out for the invitation!
