NPC Helps Businesses Weather Tropical Storm Karen

National Pump & Compressor LTD., a national equipment rental, sales and service provider, is currently executing a company-wide mobilization strategy in preparation for impending Tropical Storm Karen. Tropical Storm Karen will be the company’s fourth company-wide natural disaster relief effort in 14 months.
All 31 locations are currently transporting pumps, generators, light towers, and thousands of feet  of hose to NPC’s New Orleans, Louisiana branch, where the storm is projected to make landfall late Saturday evening.
“A mobilization job of this magnitude can be logistically challenging.  Over the past year and half, our branches have become increasingly prepared to undertake this effort.” said NPC President, Bill Kiker. “In preparation for natural disasters, the NPC team employs an ‘all hands on deck’ policy. Everyone works together to support the branch closest to the disaster. Our goal is for the branch closest to the disaster to be fully equipped to deliver products and services that will help the community prepare and recover.”
Although the New Orleans branch’s services will be available during and after the storm, the best way for any business to ensure it receives the equipment and services necessary to mitigate damages is to contact NPC prior to the storm making landfall.   

Gulf Coast Regional Sales Manager, Will Hatcher, added, “Many owners and managers don’t realize that much of the flood damage caused by severe weather like Tropical Storm Karen can be reduced or avoided altogether by calling us before the storm. Arranging dewatering equipment and services beforehand can ensure equipment is available, minimize damages, help a business get up and running again more quickly, and save stakeholders thousands or even millions of dollars. We want to spread the word to businesses and municipalities about reserving our disaster recovery services in order to lessen or avoid losses. NPC-New Orleans and all of our branches are on-call 24 hours a day to give everything we can to support the New Orleans community and surrounding areas during this time, Whatever It Takes.”
