PennEngineering operational one day after fire


PennEngineering’s facility in Danboro is open and operational following a fire that occurred at the plant Wednesday afternoon.

When a fire developed at roughly 1:30 p.m. in one of the units of the manufacturing facility, the company’s team immediately implemented safety protocols. Thanks to the rapid response of local fire and emergency services personnel, the company said Thursday, the fire was contained by 2:30 p.m. There were no injuries.

“PennEngineering management and our employees are immensely grateful to the local fire, police and emergency services personnel who responded to yesterday’s incident,” said Leonard Kiely, president of PennEngineering.

“Their rapid and professional response minimized the damage to our facility and allowed our facility to reopen for business today with all employees reporting. We are implementing our plan to leverage our global resources to maximize manufacturing and business continuity for our customers.”

PennEngineering, a global leader in the fastening industry, is working with local fire officials and regulatory agencies to identify the cause of the fire, the company said. In addition, company employees are working to minimize the impact on its customers, suppliers and employees.

With the company’s global resources and commercial continuity plan, PennEngineering expects minimal delays in demand fulfillment for its customers.
