Springfield, New Jersey – Kenneth F. Crimmins, CCIM, SIOR, president of The Blau & Berg Company, completed the leasing of the USX Corporation Fairless Works, PA, port on the Delaware River to Atlantic Marine Terminals of Belle Mead. “This is a tremendous opportunity in transportation which will not only create new jobs, but also attract new business and industry all over Bucks County,” said Crimmins.
Carl Decator, president of Atlantic Marine Terminals, said the company expects to handle cargo from about one dozen vessels a month within a year. The company will hire union workers to handle lumber, plywood, hardboard, steel vehicles, nonferrous metals and contained cargoes for import and export on the East Coast and abroad.
The community of Falls Township is excited about Atlantic Marine Terminals’ potential to draw new industries to the only commercial port in Bucks County. The port closed in 1991 when US Steel shut down its steel-producing facilities. US Steel now employs about 1,000 workers and has been redeveloping the 2,000-acre site for the last three years.
