Silverline Assists Red Cross in Hurricane AftermathNovember 15th, 2012 | Category: Industry News
While Silverline Windows in Brunswick, N.J., suffered from challenges of its own following Hurricane Sandy, the company also stepped up to help the Red Cross with relief efforts.
Silverline has been supplying the Red Cross with diesel fuel and space for the command center at its New Jersey facility, and its parent company, Andersen Windows, donated $75,000 to the Red Cross for the relief effort.
“When the Red Cross generators ran out of fuel … Andersen pulled diesel fuel from its own storage tanks to keep the Red Cross operational with trucks and vehicles and power,” says Jay Lemke, Andersen spokesperson.
“The team did a great job supporting the relief efforts, including setting up and keeping the Red Cross connected with their vehicles and volunteers, while at the same time working to get its operations up and running [the facility lost power for a week].”
In addition, Andersen has manufacturing facilities, multiple distribution sites and Renewal by Andersen retail operations in the areas impacted by the storm. Teams across the country worked around the clock to resume operations, while also tending to their families and their homes.
Lemke reported that the Carlisle, Pa., facility worked overtime to support the impacted areas, and continues to do so in transportation and distribution operations.
