Tropical Storm Harvey Update #3 – 7:00 pm
THE WOODLANDS, TX – Huntsman is pleased to confirm we have accounted for all employees who work at our sites affected by Tropical Storm Harvey and subsequent widespread flooding.
Some of our employees remain displaced and have suffered personal property damage. The wellbeing of our employees and their families continues to be our priority, and we will remain in contact with all affected employees to provide company storm-recovery support.
All Huntsman sites in the regions affected by Harvey weathered the storm safely, with no safety incidents to our associates at the sites, and no significant environmental incidents.
Normal staff working schedules will resume at all locations Tuesday unless road conditions prevent a safe commute. Operations teams are returning to normal work schedules during the course of the coming week.
Our global headquarters and Advanced Technology Center (HATC), both located in The Woodlands, are open and will be working after the Labor Day holiday.
Our manufacturing sites in Houston and Freeport, Texas, have resumed operations.
Our remaining manufacturing sites in storm-affected areas are currently completing damage assessments and conducting maintenance in preparation for safe startup. The sites listed below are in various stages of startup and will resume full operations as engineering and pre-startup safety checks are completed, and raw materials become available:
• Chocolate Bayou
• Port Neches
Our manufacturing sites in Geismar, Louisiana, and Pensacola, Florida, were not adversely affected by Harvey and continue to operate normally.
We are communicating directly with our customers about their o
rders and deliveries through our dedicated customer service and commercial contacts.
