As we look at the results of Tropical Storm Irene in the rear view mirror, we’d like to pause for a moment to thank our customers for their understanding and support. Even though trucks couldn’t initially get to our Cavendish plant, there was minimal disruption to customer commitments, a testament to both customer flexibility and the extremely hard work of our Cavendish employees.
Out of emergency mode and into the rebuilding phase, we’re replacing floors and painting walls. By Christmas, you’ll be able to tour a ‘new and improved’ Cavendish, with no hint of the flood damage left in Irene’s wake.
Most importantly, we’re fully operational. In fact, as I write this, the plant is undergoing its normal end-of-quarter inventory, which will clearly illustrate the status of all purchased parts.
This will be our last blog about the Cavendish flood, and I hope to NEVER have to write another one! Before closing, though, I want to applaud our staff once again, both in Cavendish and from the other plants that pitched in – they have shown an incredible work ethic and devotion to Mack Molding, for which we are all extremely grateful!
