Parkline News Room

Hurricane Harvey and Parkline Delaney Road, Hitchcock Texas Operations Update

Update Sept 13, 2017

Our focus remains on the safety of people and the on-time delivery of your projects.    Our business operation was spared from damage.   As you know, many other businesses were not as fortunate and our thoughts are with them.   All our suppliers expect to be back to full operations by the end of this week.   On Sept 7th, the Texas Department of Transportation cleared the first large load shipment outbound from our site.   Shipping routes remain subject to review and change.  We will continue to monitor and advise our customers.   Overall our business escaped the worst of this disaster.  Thankfully, we expect minimal disruption.
 
All our employees emerged from Harvey without injury.   Many experienced flood damages to their vehicles and homes.  Several have suffered significant or complete property loss. Your thoughts and prayers have been helping our team in Hitchcock.   Our team in WV sent a large box trailer full of food, cleaning supplies and water that arrived September 1st.   We continue to look for ways to support our employees as they work through their recovery efforts. 
 
The impact of Hurricane IRMA is still being determined, but it is clear this is another major natural disaster.   Parkline does not operate any facilities in Florida or Southeastern USA.  We have several employees that live in the impacted areas and all have reported to be safe.   Our thoughts are with our many customers and their families that live in the area.
