Delay in DEP Permitting Sends Possible Glassworks Business Elsewhere

glassworksCLARION, Pa. (EYT) – Miles Brothers, LLC continues to look for businesses to locate at their 28.5-acre Glassworks Business Park, and one company recently showed some strong interest in developing a plant, but a delay in DEP permitting caused the company to look elsewhere.

The Clarion County Planning Commission meets this Wednesday evening, and Miles Brothers are requesting preliminary approval for a proposed 224,560 Square Foot Industrial Building at the business park.

“As of right now, it’s just a proposed building for the parcel,” said Theron Miles on Monday morning. “The building was designed for a customer that had urgent needs to move into the property; however, that customer was lost due to delays in DEP permitting.

“That prospective customer wanting to move into the area had a very fast timeline, and because of the permitting issues, we were delayed on that. We were not able to meet their time needs. That building right now is just a spec building and meets the typical standards for a larger warehouse facility, so we left it as a spec building.”

Miles Brothers, LLC is owned and operated by three brothers: Ryan Miles, Curtis Miles, and Theron Miles.

The Glassworks project is converting a 28.5-acre brownfield site formerly housing the Owens-Illinois Glass Plant into Glassworks Business Park, into a compound with seven building pads ready for business development.

The seven pads would suitable for office, warehouse, or light industrial use by installing utilities, lighting, and water and sewer infrastructure and excavating, grading, and paving the sites.
