Irish went out of business in May 2008. Solotken, a family-owned Indianapolis business, bought the 140,000-square-foot building the following December.

A spokesman for J. Solotken said the company invested $4.5 million in the building’s purchase and new equipment, energy-efficient lighting and HVAC systems.

Solotken was the city’s fourth-largest recycler in 2008 with 40 full-time-equivalent employees, according to IBJ research. The company was founded in 1914 and occupied the Harding Street location since 1936. The company still owns the Harding Street facility and hasn’t decided what to do with it.
