EGI Hurricane Harvey Update

Ellwood operations in Houston, Beaumont, and Navasota were quickly restored and made fully operational following the devastating impact of Hurricane Harvey.

Many employees, however, suffered serious losses to their homes, furnishings, vehicles, and other belongings.  Thankfully, all are safe and no one was seriously injured.

As a show of concern and support, EGI shareholders, employees, vendors, and customers donated a substantial sum of money that was distributed to affected employees to help ease the financial impact of the devastation.

EGI expresses gratitude for the generosity of those who contributed and wishes our fellow employees who experienced these losses a speedy recovery.
