As of Tuesday, September 12, Chauvet has reopened its Florida facility, resuming operations in its warehouse as well as its support, sales, service and product development departments following Hurricane Irma. 

“Fortunately, our associates are all safe and our building made it through the storm with no damage,” said Albert Chauvet, CEO of Chauvet. “We worked together and moved quickly to put everything in place to service our customers.”

However, shipping from the company is still contingent on Florida’s roads being cleared, but Chauvet is confident that the state will quickly restore normal transportation channels. 

“This state is resilient and experienced at dealing with the aftermath of storms,” he said. “We’ve been impressed by how quickly things were cleaned up this week.  There should be no significant impact on shipping.”

In addition, Maverick MK2 Profile and Maverick MK Pyxis will both debut at the upcoming PLASA show in the United Kingdom, as the rollout was not affected by the storm.

“Our hearts go out to all the people who felt the brunt of the hurricane, but fortunately it had only a minimal impact on our business,” said Chauvet. “We are extremely grateful to all of our customers who expressed their concern and support during this storm.”
