NEW ALBANY, Miss. — Standex Refrigerated Solutions Group announced that a major fire destroyed the New Albany warehouse on the morning of June 26, where Master Bilt leases warehouse space. The fire apparently started in a neighboring business and quickly spread, totally consuming the warehouse. No employees were in the warehouse at the time and there were no injuries reported. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.
The fire has not interrupted manufacturing significantly and Standex returned to full production the following day. They received calls from corporate neighbors and vendors offering assistance. Standex thanked its employees, customers, representatives, dealers, corporate neighbors, and the first responders in New Albany.
