Newark Company to Rebuild Facility Following Massive 2015 Fire

Newark, New Jersey: A shipping container company in an industrial area of Newark's East Ward will construct a new maintenance facility after the original building was destroyed in a massive fire last year.

A proposal to build a new tank and truck wash facility at Quality Distribution, Inc.'s Boasso America Newark terminal at 80 Doremus Avenue was approved this week.

The new building will replace the facility near the Pulaski Skyway and the Essex County Correctional Facility that was demolished after being engulfed in flames on March 9, 2015 in a fire that injured four employees.
