Metal Recycling Firm Gannon & Scott Doubles Capacity in Rhode Island

Precious metals recycler Gannon & Scott has doubled its processing capacity at its headquarters facility in Cranston, R.I.

The $8 million investment doubles the thermal reduction, milling, screening and blending capacity of the company, according to a news release. The 93,000 sq.-ft. facility on a 6.19-acre site took almost two years to complete, working with local and state agencies, such as the Rhode Island Economic Development Council and the Rhode Island Department of Environmental Management.

Also the company, working with Beaumont Solar Co., was awarded a solar power distributed generation standard contract. Administered by the Office of Energy

Resources and National Grid, the investment will provide clean, renewable energy directly to the local electric grid.
