Hurricane Irma Update

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

Clients and Friends,

Crane Tech made it through Hurricane Irma and re-opened our offices on Tuesday. While we prepared for the worst, in a last hour turn of events, Irma started to weaken prior to her arrival in the Tampa Bay area.  We are blessed that no one on the Crane Tech team incurred major damage, although a few team members are still without power.

We know that the Caribbean Islands, other areas of Florida and the entire Eastern U.S. were not so lucky as they were impacted with devastating winds, tornadoes and rain. With clean up and recovery efforts underway, we wanted to remind you to please stay safe. Be mindful of downed power lines, the impact of heat and the dangers inherent with recovery efforts.

As we return to normal business operations, our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been adversely affected. If you have questions about the availability of upcoming courses or have questions regarding material handling training, please do not hesitate to contact us at 800-521-7669.
