OKLAHOMA CITY - CMP Corp. has moved into a newly constructed building on the same site as the one destroyed by a tornado May 8, 2003. According to the company, the new 120,000-square-foot building boasts faster manufacturing equipment, and inventory levels have been restored to pre-storm levels. The building features an even stronger storm shelter than the room that originally saved employees.

CMP Corp. maintained its full staff of employees, having added six employees in the past few months to help with shipping and manufacturing.

"Our employees have been absolutely super from the very beginning," said Jon Croy, CMP president. "We have a fine group of people who have always met the task at hand."

"We were very pleased with the way our customers responded following the tornado. Our customers like our quality and service and were understanding of our situation," said Ben Harrison, CMP manager. "All of us at CMP are looking to the future and will be as strong, if not stronger, than we were before the storm."
