Coral Industries Back Up and Running
April 29, 2011

While Tuscaloosa, Ala., is still struggling to recover from the recent tornados, Lewis McAllister, executive vice president of Coral Industries, based in Tuscaloosa, says after being shut down for a day his company is once again in operation.

Coral's architectural metals division was destroyed as a result of Wednesday's tornados that hit Tuscaloosa.

“We have power back and we’re up and running,” says McAllister.

He says the architectural division suffered extensive damages, so it will be some time before that business segment resumes.

“The architectural division is 10 percent of our business. Ninety percent is shower doors and glass and that part is up and running,” says McAllister.

He adds that since they had no power yesterday, they are still in the process of making contact with all employees.

“We’ve talked to most everyone and for the most part everyone is OK,” he adds.
