    Stage of Clean-up: Study Underway

    Conditions at Proposal (April 23, 1999): The 2.4-acre Martin Aaron, Inc. site is located at 1542 South Broadway in a mixed industrial and residential section of Camden, New Jersey. Various companies, including Martin Aaron, Inc., used the site for drum recycling for approximately 30 years. Historically, Kifferty Morocco Manufacturing Co. operated a tannery at the site from 1887 until 1908. Castle Kid Company purchased the property at that time and manufactured glazed leathers until the City of Camden seized the property for tax delinquency in 1940. Benjamin Schmerling bought the property in 1940 and leased portions to H. Preston Lowden Co. for wool and hair blending and to American Chain and Cable Company -PA Lawnmower Division for manufacturing. Martin Aaron, Inc. purchased the property in 1969, and operated a drum reconditioning facility until 1985 under the name Drum Service of Camden. At that time, Martin Aaron, Inc. sold the business to a corporation jointly owned by Westfall Ace Drum Company (Wadco) and Rhodes Drum Co. Wadco occupied the majority of the facility and ceased operating in March 1995. Rhodes Drum Co. operated at the building near the southeast corner of the site until they ceased operations around end of 1998. It is reported that a trucking company currently uses the property for the storage and transfer of trailers. Martin Aaron, Inc. still owns the property. Numerous areas of concern have been identified at the site.  More...
