LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — A metal recycling company in Lafayette is expanding to the city's east side.


Oscar Winski Logistics bought the former Caterpillar Logistics Center next to IU Arnett Health hospital.

OWLogistics is a division of The Oscar Winski Company that warehouses parts for area manufacturers. 

Vice President David Bluestein said the 160,000-square-foot building allows the company to more than double their storage space and take on new clients. He says the company can now expand service to current customers, including Wabash National Corporation. 

The company is now operating in the new building, but won't be running at full force until January.
