Gershow Expands with New Valley Stream Location

 

Gershow Recycling recently opened a new location in Valley Stream, located at 97 East Hawthorne Avenue. This is the company's eighth location and its seventh on Long Island.

The Valley Stream location joins others in Brooklyn, New Hyde Park, Freeport, Lindenhurst, Huntington, Bay Shore and Medford, where the company accepts and recycles ferrous and non-ferrous metals such as aluminum, brass, copper, steel, cast iron, appliances, cars and other vehicles.

The company's expansion is part of a long-term growth strategy, even as the country is in the midst of an economic downturn. In the spring of 2010, Gershow opened its seventh location in Freeport and, in 2007, opened its Huntington Station facility.

As the recession hit in 2008, Gershow, like most other businesses, tightened its belt by cutting back on overtime and its Saturday hours. But, in maintaining a long-term, optimistic view of the global economy and making itself well-positioned during such economic circumstances, Gershow did not have one single layoff. The company looked upon the recession as an opportunity to expand in a down market. It also pushed forward on its modernization program, recently coming to an agreement with the Long Island Power Authority, resulting in the electrification of Gershow's Medford facility.
