Employees, Factory and Offices Safe

Updated August 30, 2017 – Employees, Factory and Offices Safe

Thank you for your thoughts and concerns for our people, our business, and your projects.   We have been in contact with all employees and while many have suffered property damage, all are currently reported as safe.    Parkline will be starting a contribution drive specifically to benefit those employees who have suffered significant losses.  If you or your company would like to donate to this specific group, please check back later this week for details.  There are links at the bottom of this update for several donation sites.
 
I am relieved to report that our facility on Delaney road did not experience flooding in any of the manufacturing or office areas.  All projects in house are secure as of this update.
 
Our focus remains on the safety of people and the protection of your projects.   Due to restricted travel conditions in the area, we resumed limited operations on Tuesday, August 29th.    Inbound and outbound logistics and the condition of our suppliers’ facilities will be uncertain for some time.  We will monitor the changing conditions over the coming days and provide frequent updates.  
 
We know that many of you in the local area are in the same situation, or worse.  Our thoughts are with you, your families and all affected by this disaster.   As we resume normal operations, our managers will be in contact with our customers to discuss any expected impact to projects.  If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at 1 409 935 5743.
