Latex International resumes full production two weeks after fires shut down its River Road facility. Company executives reported this morning that all of its employees have returned to work and that production had ramped up to full capacity. The company said that the official investigation into the cause of the fire was complete. While the cause of the fire was not disclosed, executives did state that its own employee task force is working to fine tune manufacturing.
“We have eased our way back into full production to assure that we don’t experience any further issues. I am pleased that the clean up was executed quickly allowing us to return to business as usual with minimal disruption to our customers,” said Latex International President and Chief Executive Officer David Fisher. “We anticipate that in addition to fulfilling client orders, we will start making samples of the new Pure LatexBLISS products being featured at Las Vegas Market at the end of the month.”
