Springfield Aluminum Impacted by Fire.
"We have a very positive outlook and we are making every effort to fill customer orders," said President Ron Mahwiney.
A 10,800-sq-ft warehouse filled with finished goods was saved from the fire. In addition, the company manufactures products in other facilities that have accounted for as much as 40% of the firm's total output.
Virtually all of the company's business records, blueprints and mechanical drawings were saved on backup computer files. In addition, many of the hard steel fabrication dies and some aluminum supplies appear salvageable, wooden master patterns for foundry tooling were spared, and the Springfield Area Manufacturers Assn. has helped employees find temporary positions.
