Post Time:Mar 27,2013Classify:Industry NewsView:103

Kawneer Company Inc.dedicated a new floodwall at its Bloomsburg, Pa., facility, designed to protect the facility and surrounding area from potential storm damage. The project was funded through a partnership between the town of Bloomsburg, the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Department of Community & Economic Development, local and state government, and Kawneer's parent company, Alcoa.In September 2011, Tropical Storm Lee brought heavy rainfall and historic flooding to Pennsylvania, resulting in extensive damage to the Bloomsburg community and Kawneer’s Bloomsburg facility, which employs approximately 395 people. Kawneer and Alcoa developed a recovery plan and offered financial support to the community through the Alcoa Foundation.“It took a lot of hard work, resources and time to make this floodwall and recovery happen. I would be remiss if I didn’t thank our Bloomsburg employees and our loyal customers for their patience, diligence and commitment to one another, our company and to the Bloomsburg community which helped us build a safer and more stable facility,” said Glen Morrison, president, Alcoa Building and Construction Systems, in a release.
