An under-utilized industrial building in Niagara Falls just became the latest link to help the transportation of material through a connecting network of hubs.

The Hamilton-Oshawa Port Authority (HOPA) and The BMI Group just announced that the acquisition of the old Canadian Ohio Brass Co., a 350,000-square-foot facility in Niagara Falls, will now be part of an expansion of the Niagara Ports Network.

“The facility is less than 10 minutes away from the Thorold Multimodal Hub, which has seen a complete transformation in the last two years, and has attracted more than a dozen industrial users,” said the two groups in an announcement.

“The Niagara Falls facility will join the Niagara Ports family, offering warehousing, manufacturing and office space, rail access, and proximity to the US border.”

HOPA and BMI will redevelop, market, and manage the facility “for a new generation of industrial users.”

“There is an acute need for industrial space in Ontario, and together, BMI and HOPA Ports are showcasing how legacy industrial sites can be transformed to support modern industry, employment, and green supply chains,” they said.

While HOPA is well-known for its maritime connections, The BMI Group is a real estate, infrastructure, and business development company “invested in building better communities.”
