Severe storms affect Maples, Mohawk

Scottsboro, AL — Maples Rugs suffered some losses at its headquarters and production facilities here from the effects of tornadoes and storms that swept through parts of the South earlier this week, Arnie Stevens, vp, told HTT.
"We got hit [by the fringe of the storms]," Stevens said. "We had some rain, winds and flood damage. But no one was hurt."
With power still out at the site, Maples lost some production time and also some limited inventory due to water damage from between three to five inches of flooding at the main of the company's two production facilities here.
"We don't keep a huge inventory, but the small amount we do have has some water damage," he added. "We still have not evaluated exactly how much. It's still too early to know how bad the damage is."
Wade Maples, president, said the damage "is nothing significant that will affect our operations or programs for our customers."
Mohawk Home, based in Sugar Valley, GA, also lost power as part of the effects of the storm.
"But it was no big deal — we had our back-ups running and we never lost our phones or terminals," Bill Kilbride, president, Mohawk Home, told HTT. "It was out only for about 30 minutes. It gave us time to sit and have a quiet lunch."
