PFS to Rebuild After Devastating Fire
May 21, 2015
"We are extremely fortunate that no one from our team, nor anyone from neighboring residences and businesses, were injured," said Mike Glavin, owner and founder of PFS.
However, the company did suffer immeasurable losses in terms of inventory and equipment. According to Glavin, PFS' entire inventory of products, encompassing over 10,000 SKUs, were destroyed. All operating equipment––including trucks, machine repair instruments, computers, forklifts and Internet servers were destroyed as well.
According to Glavin, the company plans to rebuild, and key members of the PFS team are hard at work in a temporary command center in Boothwyn, Pa.
"We have an excellent team, a supportive network and enormous faith in our ability to rebound from this tragedy to become bigger, better and stronger than ever," added Glavin. The search for a new site is also under way, as is an investigation into the cause of the fire.
