Company plans to clean up and redevelop former Eastman Kodak plant in Jefferson County


MIDDLEWAY, West Virginia — A St. Louis-based company plans to clean up and redevelop a former Eastman Kodak Co. plant in Jefferson County.

Commercial Liability Partners chief financial officer Tim Lamp tells The Herald-Mail ( ) that the company is working on a voluntary remediation program for the property with the West Virginia Department of Environmental Protection.

Commercial Liability Partners recently bought the 270-acre property. Lamp says the company specializes in acquiring and revitalizing such properties.

The plant was developed in 1946 for the woolen industry. It has had various industrial uses since then. Kodak acquired the plant in 2005 and ceased operations in 2006.

The Jefferson County Development Authority says Kodak had initiated an environmental cleanup of the site.
