Summit Industrial’s Houston office team has been out in full force helping residents throughout the Houston metro area that were affected by Hurricane Harvey. Our team members have been helping in Katy, Atascocita, Kingwood, League City, The Heights and Memorial areas. With so much to be done, our team has enthusiastically dug in and has done whatever is needed. They have been removing household goods and furniture, gutting homes, cutting trees, washing clothes, serving meals, volunteering at local churches and shelters as well as, financially assisting individuals and families. The Summit Industrial team will continue to assist those devastated by Hurricane Harvey. One of Summit Industrial’s core values is “We treat everyone with honor, dignity and respect.” We care about each other, our employees, our clients and the communities that we live & work in.
Summit Industrial is extremely saddened by the devastation Hurricane Harvey continues to unleash on Houston and the Gulf Coast Region. The situation is still rapidly evolving and it appears that there will be many more days of terrible weather and significant rain amounts. Our thoughts and prayers are with our employees, clients, associates, vendors, and subcontractors as they endure the obstacles they face during this period.
Please stay vigilant, prepared and safe as the weather event is not yet over. Remember to be patient and work together with your family, neighbors and community so southeast Texas, Houston and the Gulf Coast region can quickly get back on its feet.
