Imperial Group is expected to use the 37,605 square foot industrial building on Nicholas Road as part of its scrap metal recycling and processing business and metal fabrication operations.
Jason Kozin, a partner with Imperial Group would not comment on plans for the property.
The building is located in the I-94 corridor, just north of the Foxconn development area.
Imperial Group was started when the company acquired a local metal recycling company. It now includes 16 industrial companies including startups, joint ventures, and acquisitions that share family-ownership and centralized business services, according to its website.
Imperial Group’s businesses are located in Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Michigan, Texas, North Carolina and Alabama.
