Flooding Impact in Hamburg, IA
Unfortunately, our Hamburg plant was directly impacted by the flooding,” said Neal Bassi, president of Manildra Group USA, on March 18. “The extent of the damage and longevity of the impact is still unknown. First and foremost, everyone is safe. Our primary concern is for our employees, their families and their homes, including the community and their facilities. We intend to start operations once all utilities have been restored and repaired to the city.” He added, “We are in the process of updating all of our customers who have been impacted. We appreciate their patience and support as we work diligently to resume operations and rebuild supplies.”
Pictures do not do justice to the total devastation we have seen in Hamburg. Hundreds of people have been displaced or have lost their homes. The Manildra team has really come together to support each other throughout this disaster.The water has begun to recede and our contingency plans are in
place. Aside from the need to keep our employees and customers content, our focus is on the levee that broke. For us to continue to be successful the levee must be rebuilt to a higher level. We are working closely with the City of Hamburg to support those efforts.
