A state of emergency has been issued for all counties in Georgia in anticipation of Hurricane Florence. As of today, we do not anticipate that the hurricane will cause any production downtime for our Athens, GA facility. However, we are anticipating possible logistic delays due to trucking routes being affected by the anticipated hit areas.
As of yesterday, wind speeds were estimated to be 120 miles per hour but is expected to weaken by Thursday. The hurricane is expected to approach the North Carolina and South Carolina on Thursday or Friday.
Formtech was able to maintain commitments through Hurricane Harvey and the logistic impacts, material shortages, and industry hardships that came from it. As always, we will be transparent and clear with our customers at all times with any possible disruption in production or lead times as soon as we are aware of them.
