Aris/Keepsake Plants® tornado update

June 07, 2010
June 7, 2010, Leamington, Ont. – Despite having several greenhouses seriously damaged in last weekend's major storm, officials with the Aris Horticulture Inc.'s Keepsake Plants production facilities (formerly Yoder Canada) say regular shipments are continuing.

Aris Horticulture, Inc.’s Keepsake Plants, Ltd. production facility here sustained damage during a tornado over the weekend. This tornado was part of the same system that passed through Ohio and Michigan Saturday night. No one was hurt, but several of the greenhouses were damaged. The office building received minimal damage.

"No disruption to daily shipments is anticipated due to the storm and we are operating as normal," said a company official. Growers relying on product distribution will receive material on schedule. "Local greenhouse growers are banding together to provide assistance."

Over the next week, Aris will conduct an assessment of the damage to the property and develop a long-term facility recovery plan. "This will ensure that we can continue to provide a reliable supply of product for our customers through a combination of repairing existing facilities and constructing new buildings."
