DOMINO SUGAR REFINERY UNVEILS LATEST IMPROVEMENTS
Sustainable enhancements to Baltimore Refinery include new high-end fence, branding graphics, landscaping and storm water treatment area
The Domino Sugar Baltimore Refinery is unveiling a number of improvements to the perimeter of its 24-acre Locust Point property.
“For several years, we have been making significant investments to improve the exterior of our facility, beginning with the pressure washing, restoration and painting of our historic buildings and, more recently, the replacement of more than 250 windows. Our latest improvements represent one of the biggest enhancements to the face of the refinery, which are adding value to the neighborhood,” said Peter O’Malley, Vice President of Corporate Relations.
- A 2,000-foot-long black steel picket fence to replace original 1922 iron fencing and decades-old chain link and barbed wire.
- Two new branding signs: one at the gate with company logos that says, “Made in Baltimore Since 1922,” and a vintage Domino Sugar® sign on the east side of the property.
- 0.5 acre of green space that includes 16 trees and dozens of native bushes and plants
- A new retaining wall for the truck lot at Key Highway East and Stevenson Street that incorporates a modular biofiltration system to treat storm water.
“We’ve been operating here continuously for 94 years and our production has never been higher. We will continue to provide good jobs for the people of Baltimore, make quality products, and strive to be a good corporate neighbor,” said O’Malley.
