OKLAHOMA CITY — CMP Corporation, a manufacturer of compressor replacement parts, suffered damage to its corporate offices and facilities during a tornado that ripped through Oklahoma City on May 8. No employees were injured as a result of the disaster.

The tornado damaged several of CMP’s manufacturing machines and some parts inventory in addition to the administrative offices. Management immediately launched disaster recovery efforts with employees, management, and cleanup crews on site sorting through the debris, salvaging unharmed parts, and assuring customers that CMP’s operations would be restored quickly.

Days after the tornado, CMP erected a 4,000-square-foot tent to provide shelter as CMP’s 90 employees resumed filling orders and shipping parts to customers.
“The damage incurred upon our building was tragic, but we are so grateful none of our employees were injured,” said CMP president Jon Croy. “As always, our first priority is to continue serving the needs of our clients, and we are taking every step possible to ensure that will happen in the very near future.”

Seven days after the tornado, CMP resumed shipping parts to customers. The company relocated to a temporary building to house operations until the new building is constructed.
