Amherst Stainless Fabrication Plans Expansion in Amherst | Business premises
A manufacturer of stainless steel products in Amherst wants to expand its manufacturing and warehousing space in response to growing business demand.
Amherst Stainless Fabrication is looking to build a 14,000 square foot addition to its facility at 60 John Glenn Drive, just south of North French Road.
Its existing facility has 45,312 square feet of space for office administration, production and storage, which would represent growth of just over 30% to nearly 60,000 square feet.
The project would also include a new stormwater retention pond and 14 additional parking spaces on the 3.68-acre site, according to the application submitted for the company by AJ Roth Construction and Apex Consulting Survey & Engineering Services PC of Lockport.
The Amherst Planning Board will consider the proposal on Thursday.

This would create 36 new 2,000 square foot two-bedroom units, along with a private driveway and 62 more parking spaces.
