The company is working from temporary offices in its Plant 2 facility,
just north of its main facility where recovery efforts and disaster
recovery plan implementations are being directed. The company says
that in order to minimize service interruption to customers, its
first priority is returning to production as quickly as possible
once safe access to the facility has been granted. Company representatives
have been contacting customers and suppliers to explain the situation.
