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.
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.
