Find out what IP range they used on that connection to the switch.

Then you need a router or layer 3 switch to add routes to the remote network, and connect that to the switch.

What type of router do you have? What type of switches do you have?

Can you support another WAN interface?

Their T1 router should be the only router you need for this and just connect your switch to their switch. You will need the IP address of their router's ethernet interface to be able to route to it to get to the remote site's network.
