Holiday Weekend Support:

After receiving an urgent call for support over a holiday weekend, the Voltgard® team tested and shipped numerous boxes of rubber goods, blankets, and sleeves. Product was delivered to the local UPS facility to aid a major utility company in regaining power after a tornado shut down their local airport.

Ice Storm Salvation: 

With no common carriers available to make delivery, and no messenger service available due to icy roads, the Voltgard® team personally delivered dozens of pairs of gloves on a Sunday morning during a severe ice storm.

National Disaster Support: 

As an electrical contractor was mobilizing crews for a caravan to aid in natural disaster support, the Voltgard® team coordinated the pickup of a trailer full of arc-rated rainsuits and other PPE. The contractor routed a portion of their convoy by the Voltgard® facility, hitched up the trailer and met up with the rest of their team.
