Situation

In April 2011, one of the largest tornado outbreaks ever recorded caused damage from Alabama through Southern Virginia.  The site comprised of five buildings, all of which sustained damage. The main production building was 70% destroyed.

Response

URI mechanical and construction teams redeployed production machinery.

Field service technicians designed and constructed a custom storage mezzanine, and process retrieval system in order to resume production in a building one third the original size.

Result

The company was the first large facility to resume production in the local disaster area.

“Your response time was excellent and the way you worked with our team can be described as second to none. A fire is a traumatic experience to anyone and to have your company as a support in helping us recover was very comforting and helpful.”

VICE PRESIDENT, TIRE OPERATIONS, BERGEY, INC.
“With so many buildings having lost some or all of their roof systems, the immediate threat was water damage to the buildings’ interiors and contents. Without immediate action there was a real possibility that a large portion of these buildings would be lost to mold
