As you are most likely aware, Hurricane Florence is heading to the mid-Atlantic region. Flood Zone A evacuations have been announced in the Virginia Beach area. UPS has already announced their local sorting facility will be closed on Friday. FedEx has made no closure announcements, but continue to monitor the situation closely.
KATO Fastening Systems is not officially planning to close business; however, we do expect operations will be impacted on Thursday, Friday, and possibly into next week depending on the duration of the storm and events such as power outages and localized flooding.
As always, our priorities are the safety and well-being of our team members and minimizing the effects of the storm on our valued customers. We will make every effort to maintain operations to the best of our ability. We will continue to keep you apprised of any updates or changes in our status.
For those in the path, please stay safe! Thank you very much for your business, and we sincerely appreciate your patience and understanding during such events.
