The Journal ran a great article featuring Cohen on Monday and their purchase of the old Developmental Disabilities building to redevelop into their corporate headquarters. The link to the article is below:
We know Cohen Recycling here in Middletown. but did you know that it has been a Middletown family business for over 90 years?
Cohen is now one of the largest ferrous and non-ferrous recycling companies in North America.
In the 1960s, Cohen began to offer “custom fabrication services” in order to better suit their customers’ needs. By offering customized scrap boxes and containment systems, Cohen was able to differentiate themselves and become a staple of not only the Middletown community, but the region and country as well. Cohen offers a full-service, custom scrap management solutions to customers, ultimately helping their customers to improve upon the efficiency of their companies.
Over time, Cohen expanded to have 20 locations in four different states, and employs about 500 people. Along with expansion, Cohen has always been at the forefront of the recycling industry: Cohen was one of the first to see the potential of shredders in the 1970s and added auto-part shredding in the following ten years. In the 1990s, Cohen continued to stand out in the industry by becoming one of the first to become ISO-certified scrap processors in the country.
More recently, in 2015 Cohen invested $7 million in an e-scrap facility, recognizing the need for an efficient way in which to recycle electronics. This addition has made Cohen’s footprint 110,000 square feet in Middletown alone, showing Cohen’s commitment to providing the community a cleaner environment.
We’d like to thank the Cohen family for their years of service and commitment to the Middletown community. We’re so excited to see what the future has in store!
