Flood Hits Elroy, WI Plant
A series of relentless rains hit Central Wisconsin the last week of August, leading to rivers overflowing their banks in a number of communities. One of the hardest hit was Elroy, WI where one of Sprinkman’s tank manufacturing facilities resides. On Monday, August 27th flood waters entered the building, exceeding a height of 40” in some areas of the plant before receding. What was left was a field of mud and debris throughout our three building complex and the surrounding area. Many of our employees also had flood damage to their homes, with one employee dealing with a complete loss of his home. Even with all of this disruption our crew immediately jumped in and began the clean-up process. Within a week partial manufacturing had resumed and as of September 17th full-time production was restored!
We truly appreciated the understanding we received from those customers that experienced a delay due to these circumstances. We are also extremely grateful for our dedicated employees who just find a way to get things done, no matter what life throws at them!
