Streicher responds to Wilma's devastation
Dec 1, 2005 12:00 PM
Streicher Mobile Fueling Inc mobilized equipment and personnel in a response to Hurricane Wilma, which devastated South Florida in October 2005.
Richard E Gathright, president and chief executive officer, said, “Our sympathies go out to those impacted by this storm, including many of our own personnel. While Broward County and Fort Lauderdale, our corporate home, were especially hard-hit by the hurricane, the company's equipment and facilities, including our corporate offices, were not physically damaged, and we are operating at full capacity to meet the needs of our customers, and emergency service providers throughout the affected region.
“We have relocated additional equipment and personnel from other company locations to support our relief operations in South Florida, which are expected to continue for many weeks,” he said. “At the same time, we are continuing to support the Hurricane Katrina and Rita restoration work in Louisiana and Texas. The company's acquisitions of Shank Services earlier this year and H & W Petroleum have enhanced our ability to provide storm relief and restoration support, regionally and nationally. Experienced Shank Services personnel are on the ground in South Florida with specialized fueling equipment while its heavy-haul units are being used to ferry fuel tanks and other equipment to the devastated areas. H & W's transports are providing the company additional capacity to move to South Florida fuel supplies which are not currently available from Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale.”
