H&K Group Materials Facilities to Offer Extended Hours For Flooding Relief Skippack, PA – In the wake of the devastating and unprecedented flooding that has impacted the eastern half of Pennsylvania and much of New Jersey, The H&K Group Materials Division announced today that it would be offering extended hours of operation at participating materials facilities.

The H&K Group issues this announcement as flood waters slowly recede from an excess of 12-inches of rain that fell in some portions of the region last week. On Friday, September 9, 2011, John A. Haines, Executive V.P., Construction Materials, indicated, “Demand for bulk stone, aggregate, asphalt, ready-mix concrete and precast concrete will no doubt increase over the next several weeks as municipal, county and state government offices begin to assess the overall damage to their watersheds and watercourses, infrastructure systems as well as impacted residential and commercial areas. It’s important that The H&K Group respond to this increased demand. Our company will do whatever it takes to get the commonwealth and the region back on its feet.”

As Pennsylvania Governor, Tom Corbett, continued his tour of the flood ravaged portions of our state, much of the northeast will await President Obama’s recognition of last week’s flooding event as a “major disaster” in an official declaration so that doors to federal assistance will open to both public agencies and private individuals through the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Once the Presidential Disaster Declaration is made, federal cleanup monies will then flow into our commonwealth through PEMA, or the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency. Adjoining states will be handled in a similar manner.

Public agencies or private individuals seeking immediate demand or need for bulk stone, aggregate, asphalt, ready-mix concrete and precast concrete or other construction materials are urged to a) contact their existing H&K Group Materials Salesperson for materials requests or to get extended hours of operation, b) utilize the attached Materials Facility Emergency Contact Information to contact their regional H&K Group Materials Salesperson, or c) point their browser to http://www.hkgroup.com/locations/Locations.aspx to find the closest H&K Group Materials Facility.

The H&K Group is proud to also offer comprehensive disaster response services through the company’s Emergency Response Team program. Given The H&K Group’s large footprint of both construction materials facilities and site contracting offices/services throughout the four-state region, we are the ultimate source for comprehensive emergency response for this, or any disaster or emergency situation. “One Call and We’re There!” 1-800-982-8000.
