Polymer Group Inc (PGI) has temporarily closed its Cali, Colombia facility due to flooding that has occurred at the industrial park where the PGI plant is located. A severe rainy season has impacted many parts of the country.

During the interruption of manufacturing, the company has established temporary offices away from the flooded area and is working with customers to meet critical needs through the use of its global manufacturing base as much as possible.

Veronica "Ronee" Hagen, PGI's chief executive officer, stated, "This is a difficult situation, but we are pleased to report that our people remain safe. Our immediate focus is on mitigating impacts to our customers and our business. We are in close communications with our Latin American customers and supply chain partners, alerting them about this situation and the execution of contingency plans to support their needs. Additionally, we are proactively preparing to take the necessary steps to expeditiously restore our facility to its world-class status as soon as the water levels subside. We will continue to communicate with our people and our customers as the situation develops."

Polymer Group, Inc, one of the world's leading producers of nonwovens, is a global, technology-driven developer, producer and marketer of engineered materials. With the broadest range of process technologies in the nonwovens industry, PGI is a global supplier to leading consumer and industrial product manufacturers.
