September 19th, 2017 by Editor

Masonite announced this week that Hurricane Irma, which struck the west coast of Florida near its headquarters in Tampa, didn’t severely impact its facilities.

The company confirmed that none of its facilities or inventories were damaged. While production was interrupted before and after the storm, all of the company’s plants in Florida and the Southeast had power restored and resumed normal operations on September 14. Masonite will continue to monitor any storm-related impacts to its business. At this time, however, it does not believe there will be any material adverse financial impact to the company as a result of Hurricane Irma.

“On the heels of the storm, our top priority was ensuring that our employees and their families were safe,” said Fred Lynch, president and CEO. “I’m pleased to report that our team is back at work assisting our customers with their post-storm needs. Our thoughts are with all those impacted by the storm and we remain committed to supporting our customers and the communities that are recovering.”

In addition to its corporate offices, Masonite operates its Digital Innovation Center and three manufacturing plants in Florida, as well as several plants in adjacent states that experienced severe weather conditions.

Masonite also announced that  it will contribute $50,000 to Team Rubicon, a non-profit organization that unites military veterans with first responders to rapidly deploy during emergencies.
