Despite Fire in Mississippi Warehouse, Operations Roll on for Standex Refrigerated Solutions Group

A June 26 fire destroyed the New Albany, Miss., warehouse leased by Standex Refrigerated Solutions Group. No employees were in the warehouse at the time and there were no injuries reported, per a Standex release. The cause of the fire is currently under investigation.

The fire has not interrupted manufacturing significantly and Standex expects to return to full production on June 27, the company said. Standex Refrigerated Solutions Group’s manufacturing facilities at other locations around the country can assist if necessary with inventory replacement.

The 16 warehouse employees whose jobs are affected will likely either be reassigned or back at their regular job within days, the company added.
