News: Hurricane Ida Update #2

Sep 1, 2021

We are safely continuing our recovery efforts at our Geismar, La., EPDM facility, due to the impacts of Hurricane Ida. 

We are glad to report that there is no significant damage to the site and that once we can confirm a stable return of electrical power and utilities, personnel, and the required feedstocks, we will begin the process of returning to normal production and business operations. Thus, as we progress through this recovery process with more details forthcoming, we will be in a better position to provide a more detailed estimate on the expected return to normal production.  We appreciate your continued patience in this regard given the fluidity of the situation.

It is also important to note that we suffered no loss of inventory due to the storm and we expect to begin limited shipments on September 2nd, with a return to full shipping capability on September 7th.

We would like to reiterate that your patience and consideration is very much appreciated during this time. We also appreciate the well wishes that we have received in regard to employees, and we have communicated these to them as well.  We are in contact with all our employees at this time in order to ascertain their personal status so that we can work to assist them with their immediate needs. 

If you have any further questions, please contact your sales representative or our customer service department at (Geismar) (Orange and Port Neches) or calling 1-800-535-9960.
