Former DuPont plant on Tremainsville is being demolished

The former DuPont plant at 1930 Tremainsville Rd. is being demolished by its new owner, a Michigan corporation organized by James Hewines of Royal Oak, Mich.

The corporation, known as 1930 Tremainsville LLC, bought the property for $500,000 on March 13 from Axalta Coating Systems LLC, an automotive paint supplier that had acquired the plant and its property from DuPont in 2019.

Mr. Hewines is president of Huntington Machinery Inc., a Bloomfield Hills, Mich., firm that specializes in industrial demolition, scrap recycling, and the buying and selling of used plant production and metalworking machinery. Mr. Hewines didn’t return messages seeking comment.

Workers at the site have all but demolished the main plant building, but some of the outbuildings surrounding it still stand.

During its heyday, the DuPont plant manufactured automotive paint for the Great Lakes region and employed several hundred workers.

Toledo City Councilman Mac Driscoll told The Blade that a distribution facility company is interested in the site, “but they have a long road ahead of them. Nothing is going on immediately.

“It’s a brownfield site, so redevelopment will be challenging,” Mr. Driscoll said.
