Video: More Demolition at Nevamar

Odenton Patch got chance to see some big equipment at work tearing down buildings at the north side of the old Nevamar facility.

Last week, we showed you some at the former Nevamar facilty on Route 170. This time, we offer some great video of walls coming down and heavy equipment in action.

What you see here are buildings left on the north side of the site, known as the old Formica plant. Berg Demolition is the contractor doing the knocking down of things. The company plans to recycle most of the material left.

Developer StonebridgeCarras is heading up a big redevelopment plan for the area. The first phase will be built by Bozzuto Group, and will consist of 369 apartments in a project known as Flats170 at Academy Yard. The area being demolished now, on the north side of the site, is where the apartments will go.

Check back tomorrow for a complete story on the long-term plans for the site, with comments from officials involved in the development.

This was not The Formica plant as that is a totally different brand of laminate than Nevamar. This site was the division of Nevamar called Fountainhead. We manufactured a solid surfacing material like Dupont's Corian, I worked for Nevamar for 28 years.

My husband Dave & I both worked @ Nevamar Corporation. We both started when it was Exxon Chemical. I need some information about how to locate information about my widow's benefits, retirement, etc. Please email me @ sweetsherryslk@yahoo.co.uk if you can help. I also worked @ fountainhead the 1st year when it was experimental.

This plant, as far as I know, was not referred to as the "Formica Plant". I worked there for 5 years, from 1988 to Dec 1993.

Nevamar plant was a B&O Railroad Repair Shop in the 50's, it then went to National Plastics, the next owner was Exxon, it was Enjay Fibers. It was purchased by a New York Investment firm when it became Nevamar Corp., purchased by International Paper in May, 1991. I worked in Human Resources and did presentations at local high schools on the second largest private employer in Anne Arundel Co. It was a great company with alot of great employees!!!
