“Our employees are trained and prepared to manage issues like this,” says Roddy Greig, DeWitt plant manager, in the release. “It is a testament to their teamwork and determination–and a tremendous response from our local firefighters on Monday–that we are able to resume full production in such a short period of time.”
Greig says nobody was injured and that customers were unaffected by the leak. “It’s been a busy week for us, but it’s back to business as usual,” he says in the release.
