Tropical Storm HarveyAugust 29th, 2017 | by Cydney Ash
As you all know, we are witnessing a historic catastrophic flooding event here in the Houston area. I want to bring you up to date on the status of Utex Operations. At this time, none of our operating facilities have suffered flooding and only minor damage has been reported. Out of concern for the safety of our team members, we have asked many that live in the affected areas to shelter in place.
Following is our plant-by-plant assessment regarding operations and restricted production plans:
- Weimar has experienced no damage. However, production will be somewhat limited due to team members’ inability to drive to the facility. We expect to be back to full capacity by the end of the week.
- Conroe & Willis have reported minor damage but no flooding. They are open for business but also with limited capacity due to team members’ inability to safely drive to the plant. Again, we expect to be back to near capacity by the end of the week.
- Accuseal has experienced no flooding or damage to the facility but cannot be safely accessed by team members due to location. We have elected to close this facility until Wednesday, pending weather/flooding conditions and will be back to full capacity by Thursday.
- Utex Corporate Office has suffered no flooding or wind damage but is also closed due to inaccessibility. Plans are to re-open on Wednesday.
Utex Team Members stand ready to assist our valued customers during this difficult period. Please contact us if you have any critical or urgent needs.
