TCI Breaks Ground on $7-Million Facility

May 19, 2014

TCI of NY, LLC, an industry leader in the safe removal, transportation and processing of used transformers and other oil-filled electrical equipment, held a ceremonial groundbreaking today for construction of a $7 million headquarters in the Town of Coeymans, N.Y.

The groundbreaking was held at Coeymans Landing Park, symbolic of TCI’s commitment to community partnership as well to building a thriving business that will provide jobs and other benefits and opportunities to Coeymans.

“I feel extremely fortunate and grateful for the relationships we are building in Coeymans, and for the support Production_Building.jpgwe have received from so many of our new neighbors and community leaders,” TCI President Brian Hemlock said. “I am proud of the service that TCI provides to our customers and our communities. By safely removing and transporting old electrical transformers and other equipment, draining them and preparing them for recycling, we play a leading role in the environmentally responsible handling, reuse and disposal of this equipment. It is very gratifying to know that the work we are doing today will have a lasting, positive impact on the world we leave our children and grandchildren.”

“TCI represents the potential for real commercial growth in our community,” New York State Assemblyman Pete Lopez said. “Smart growth. Responsible growth. Growth that builds jobs, supports other businesses and provides a service that makes our world more sustainable.”

TCI has been operating in leased space in the Port of Coeymans since May 2013. The new facilities are expected to be completed by mid-summer.

TCI’s previous facilities in Ghent, NY, were destroyed in an accidental fire that is believed to have resulted from a heating unit being left on by a contractor. The new facility will feature an industry-leading, automatic foam suppression system.

“I am very pleased to welcome TCI to the Town of Coeymans,” Town Supervisor Stephen Flach said. “TCI is exactly the kind of company we need to begin growing our tax base and providing job opportunities in our town. TCI plays an important role in environmental stewardship as a catalyst for the reuse of resources that otherwise would be dumped in a landfill. The service TCI provides has value for communities far beyond Coeymans. I look forward to TCI’s continued success in the years to come.”
