POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – Land ‘N’ Sea’s daily truck delivery to dealers in the areas affected by Hurricane Charley has resumed, the company said in a press release this morning.
Land ‘N’ Sea had temporarily suspended delivery and other services performed at its Lake Suzy, Fla., facility after it was damaged by the recent storm, but continued to provide service to its dealers on the Western coast of Florida through back-up support from other branch operations and ground delivery services.
“We are extremely pleased to have restored our own Land ‘N’ Sea delivery truck service to our West Coast dealers,” said Tom Schuessler, chief operating officer of Land ‘N’ Sea. “Restoring this high level of service to our customers just one week after the substantial damage to our 50,000 sq. ft. facility at Lake Suzy is a testimonial of our employees extraordinary efforts and the organizations commitment to serving our dealers needs.”
Craig Hamilton, the company’s director of operations, said Land ‘N’ Sea is committed to restoring service to pre-hurricane levels, including twice-a-day deliveries, as quickly as possible. He also said the company was presently working to quickly re-establish a temporary physical presence on the Western coast of Florida.
“Longer term, we are examining several alternatives,” Hamilton said. “Our objective is to ultimately provide an even higher level of service to our dealers than prior to the hurricane.”
Nearly all affected employees are back at work on site at Lake Suzy or at the Land ‘N’ Sea facility in Pompano Beach, Fla. Schuessler said the company had been providing relief assistance to its employees, including several who lost all of their possessions.
Additionally, a special relief fund has been established to aid Brunswick employees who suffered losses due to the hurricane. Contributions to the Brunswick Employee Hurricane Relief Fund can be arranged by calling 1-800-432-7652, ext. 1003.
