Polyethylene Force Majeure Notice From Vendor
September 8, 2017
We thank you for your ongoing use of CUBITAINER® products.
As you are aware, extreme damage and flooding in the Houston area from Hurricane Harvey has affected petroleum markets in the United States. It has taken several days for waters to recede and for assessments to be made in refineries and downstream operations.
We have been closely monitoring these events, and working with our polyethylene supply chain to mitigate the effects. Today, our resin suppliers based in the Houston area have declared Force Majeure events as a result of this storm. We want to alert you that these declarations will likely have an effect on our ability to supply you with CUBITAINER® products in the fourth quarter.
Those effects are still being calculated. Our division President, Mr. Yasuo Iwasa, has issued a statement outlining our efforts to manage our deliveries and communicate with you over the coming weeks. Please read it HERE (PDF).
Rest assured that our entire team is dedicated to mitigating this situation and we will pass on information as quickly as we are able. We appreciate your patience and continued support.
Everyone at the Hedwin Division of Zacros America
